+ - Male facial development evolved to take punches->

Submitted by Joe_NoOne
Joe_NoOne (48818) writes "A new theory suggests that our male ancestors evolved beefy facial features as a defence against fist fights. The bones most commonly broken in human punch-ups also gained the most strength in early "hominin" evolution. They are also the bones that show most divergence between males and females."
