    This is very unfortunate, and I will certainly be donating. Regrettably, it won't be very much, but I've got to donate something.

    Perhaps we should have a little competition, to see who can raise the most money, Bullshido, The Underground, or...queerDog.

    If an event could be raised quick enough, this sounds like a great idea. I actually thought this was what the thread was when I saw the title.

    You could also probably collect donations AT the fight too.

    So this has hit Yahoo. Could a mod maybe contact the author of this article and tell him about that Paypal account being set up? The more people know, the more people can help.

    Edit: just realized there's a link to donations in the post above.

    Hate to say this, but this thread should serve as a lesson to any amateur or professional fighter to get insurance or quit.

    For me my €40 (about $65) a year judo licence issued by the local federation includes health insurance for training accidents, plus I have private cover and there is a national health scheme here.

    Now I know things are a lot different in the US, but to fight and train in a sport with an appreciable risk of serious injury, without health cover, seems like an unacceptable risk to me.

    Is there any specific or limited health insurance available for just for fighting/training injuries?

    If so, anyone serious about fighting should just factor it into the cost of training. If not, IMO they should find a safer sport to compete in.

    I think usjf has like a $5000 policy for training related injuries.

    On a side note. I can't believe some of the comments on the yahoo story. WTF is wrong with people.

    Poker, the health insurance system here is quite different from that of other nations.

    Suffice it to say that many in this country go uninsured because the cost is prohibitively high, and even then coverage is limited. Hell, I worked full time for a major coroporation and my insurance coverage was horrendous and costly. I can't imagine what it's like to be self-employed and trying to get coverage, especially as someone in a high-risk field such as pro MMA.

    The Yahoo community is full of idiots and douchebags. Don't believe me? Take a look at Yahoo Answers one of these days, especially anything pertaining to MA.

    I was seriously thinking about dropping my health insurance a few months ago. Because I have sleep apnea and pre-diabetes, it's almost five hundred dollars a month. I decided at the last minute to keep it, and literally two weeks later my gf breaks my nose which requires surgery to put it back into place. I would have been in debt for twenty grand.

    If you are doing serious, live training, you are crazy to not have health insurance. Even then you can be totally screwed.
