    What kind of contingency plan do you think the UFC has in case a a fighter dies in the cage or because of related injurys shortly after the bout. I'm talking two healthy fighters not using peds. What the hell do you guys think would happen after that.
    I know they have preventive measures going on in the performance institute. I'm just trying to imagine a senerio of what would of happened and why and what they would do about it.

    They would make headlines the world over “ as real as it gets “ Would take on a whole new meaning.

    they would just get USADA to say it was from some bad reaction to a PED.

    Problem solved.

    They would have to do a serious PR tour. Vince McMahon has to when Owen Hart died.

    Dana can’t handle the mainstream media anywhere near as well. That would be a disaster

    That said, I would not want to see that

    Simple..they signed contracts and fight agreements that include waivers that release the UFC from any liability...

    Just like everyother major sport league

    And will treated as such...press conferences, interviews..a minute of silence during the next event...all that..

    These guys know what they signed up for...

    Going after the UFC legally would mean the ending of all sports..as every sport has had deaths..boxing has had way more then MMA..its still around and making billons..

    Id say the UFC is good

    Dana would mention PEDs, have Conor do something irrational then bring up Brock Coming back, and the whole thing would blow over in a week.

    Reebok would fork over an additional 2.5k for the casket.
    Ambulance bill is not covered.

    Call me a conspiracy nut but i think that is why USADA was brought in. They know a death is inevitable and they can point to USADA and say "See, were being as safe as we can"

    Honestly, it's inevitable. It's going to happen at some point.

    If I can get 30-40k I'll throw my carcass at Rumble, only if they pay my hospital bills afterwards.
