To identify the correlation between physiological parameters induced by the crosscombatâ„¢
after 72 hours of rest in sixteen MMA athletes underwent a 40-min session of the method.
A negative correlation between bicarbonate and chloride affects the anion gap in post-
exercise time, and the inverse behavior of neutrophils and lymphocytes is similar between
monocytes and eosinophils. A positive correlation between monocytes, eosinophils, and
bicarbonate and a negative correlation between neutrophils and other strains of leukocytes
as Lymphocytes, Monocytes, and Eosinophils. The negative correlation between neutrophils
and lymphocytes and between the same neutrophils and other leukocyte lineages seems
to show neutrophils as the most acutely affected cells in this type of exercise, different
from what was previously seen for a six-minute jiu-jitsu match. Because both models use
fighting movements and are of high intensity, the execution time changed the leukocyte
behavior in response to stress. The negative correlation between bicarbonate and chloride,
may have influenced the differential leukocyte count, given the positive correlation
between the HCO3 and, the subfamilies of monocytes and eosinophils. Furthermore, these
subfamilies showed a negative correlation with neutrophils and that the anion gap alters
the activity and concentration of other biochemical parameters in the plasma modulating
