MMA and porn key motivators for success in Rugby

The Times reports that an experiment “involving 12 professionals from a top English rugby union team” was designed to see what pre-match stimulation could improve performances.

The study found that players who watched four minutes of erotic dancing or four minutes of a UFC fight had higher testosterone levels afterwards and performed better in strength-conditioning exercises.
