If we do start watching something else, then this game dies and that's the problem. You can't just change the game to serve a certain segment of people. You risk killing the fan base and that's a problem.
Pro boxers do get damaged. But that is a far far smaller sport and one in which the sport has changed. Boxers used to fight huge numbers of fights. Now you'd be hard pressed to find guys going it more than 2-3 times a year.
Fights also used to be 15 rounds. Again, the sport changed.
