The point of this insurance is to cover the athletes when they are not fighting on fight night. Injuries we are talking about are the ones that occur in training, therefore rendering the fighter unable to fight and collect a paycheck.
This is a very big benefit for the fighter. If I am not mistaken, the UFC already had insurance inplace for injuries that happened in the cage on fight night. So this new insurance is like a supplemental insurance to that.
Bob Reilly is the poster child for greasy politician. Does anybody believe a word that comes out of this guys mouth??
Lets face it, if you play a sport seriously. injuries are going to happen...heck even golfers have issues with backs and knees...ask Jack Nicklaus and Tiger woods and a whole slew of others.
