I think professional wrestling is a lot more dangerous than UFC due to the things they do in the ring or outside of it.

Hi, I'm glad to debate this topic with you. Let's hop right in shall we?

First, we should define what "Dangerous" is
Dangerous is defined as "able or likely to cause physical injury" [1]

So, in this debate, we're looking at what's more likely to cause physical injury, UFC, or professional wrestling. To start off, we'll look at the rate UFC fighters get injured/die due to a specific fight

One (potentially life threatening) brain injury happen in one out of three fights (33%), 205 serious injuries in 2012-2013 (serious enough for them to need to find a replacement [2]. Since 2007, there have been at least twelve deaths that have happened during a fight, or shortly after [3].
This alarmingly high rate of injury only proves one thing: UFC is potentially the most dangerous sport out there.

Another thing I'd like to point out- just because something is flashy, doesn't mean it's dangerous. Moves such as the stunner, aren't always harmful, and more often than not require the receiver to make it seem believable. To expand upon my point, there are many times where the receiver of a move will make sure the performer remains unharmed, specifically in high risk moves. In quite a few high risk moves, they require the receiver to "catch" the performer, for example- https://www.youtube.com... . Because of the precautions taken, this severely minimizes the risk of certain moves, and minimizes how DANGEROUS the fight is.

UFC is much more dangerous than professional wrestling simply due to the death/injury rates, the lack of precaution taken when fighters do certain moves.

wow thank you so much never did I knew about UFC's death rate. Well here's what I have to say, and correct me if I'm wrong, UFC fighters don't really go and do this weekly do they? if they do then my bad. WWE superstars go out and perform their thing(yes I know it's scripted) and they put up a great show and all, and all of the moves like you said are well performed or sold. There are times though were just a tiny accident can really damage you, one example is when Seth Rollins popped his knee while trying to power bomb Kane. He did finished the match and won though. WWE has seriously slowed down on their brutality, but companies like AAA or lucha underground are amazingly risky. if you look at the match of last year Puma vs Mil Muertes, theres a part where Puma jumps out and gets hit by a chair. You might say "well those are fake or whatever" but that's not my point, my point is that he didn't see it coming and while the chair could have been fake, him hitting the ground(concrete may I add) wasn't.

WWE had serious injuries this past 2015. Cesaro, Tysson Kid, Rollins, Randy Orton, John Cena and Sin Cara. In UFC yes it's amazingly dangerous I've seen some brutal matches, but the risks taken in professional wrestling are a lot higher. One example is back in 2009 where Undertaker did a suicide dive out and Shawn Michaels put a camera man on the way. The Undertaker landed on his head and the rest hit the camera and the man himself. He still went inside and and had the almost hour match. The next week he still competed, In UFC if you are injured or whatever, I don't think they let you perform. In professional Wrestling if it's minor, you have to go out there anyways. Now yes It makes sense because it's scripted and all but they are out there with broken ribs and all trying to perform.

They go out and Perform(a point I already made sorry) but Here's my other point, they don't use stunt men, they seriously have a one shot strike. The moves performed could seriously kill some one if done wrong. an example is the death of el perro aguayo (AAA luchador) where Rey Mysterio did a head scissor take down and drop kicked him. As he landed on the ropes he stopped moving and then died. In UFC you are meant to hurt and that's why yes it's dangerous, but in wrestling it's more high risk because you are trusting the other guy to do his job, if he doesn't you can seriously get injured if not die. In UFC you know you are going in a fight so you train and train to learn to block and build defense and preppare yourself for a fight. In wrestling you do know that since it's scripted you won't get seriously punched or if you follow the line you won't get hurt, but Like I said you don't know, there are times botches happen, one example is Kurt angle vs Shane McMahon where Kurt Tried throwing Shane through a glass wall but when he hit it it didn't broke and Shane landed on his neck terribly, not only that he went for it again and yes the glass broke but what the heck you know?
