    I said first case of HIV. Hep != HIV

    The key words in your statement are "unsanitary training". And why the heck hadn't they been vaccinated for hepatitis? Maybe clubs should require up to date vaccinations as well. Hey, why not flu shots too while we're at it?

    I have gotten ringworm once from rolling but that was it, never had anything else, and I get tested pretty often.

    I've never HAD to have a blood test but I get a full screening every 6 months to a year anyway. I think it's a fucking brilliant idea on the part of Alex's instructors.

    I've always wondered, do MMA fighters have to get checked regularly? I've seen a hell of a lot of blood in that and with grappling, the blood tends to go all over the opponent too.

    Nope:

    i'm not sure if this was asked yet, but when you fight competitively amateur or professional are you required to get tested for things like HIV/AIDS and hepatitas? like do UFC and PrideFC fighters have to get tested regularly?

    It don't see how this would fly in the US for many of the reasons mentioned above, but if it were to be mandatory, having a follow-up every six months would be too long. It can take up to six months for a person to seroconvert for HIV, so it is possible that a person would test negative, get exposed, then test negative again. This means they could possibly be infecting people for a year, the whole time people are thinking they are safe.


    But of course the article that CC posted kinda puts things in perspective.
