I'm imagining a guy $5K a fight in a different org tears his ACL. The foreign fighter simply gets it fixed for free. The American fighter probably just tries to ignore it. Or with lesser injuries like a broken arm. The American guy will simply train through it and hope it heels right. Then it doesn't and the rest of his career is effected. Or he does get the surgery and now he can't afford coaches, and so he has to go into his next few fights without coaching. Or maybe start skipping meals, or move onto someone's couch? I've heard that UFC fighters get some kind of health insurance. So maybe this only applies to the guys in the B leagues trying to make it to the UFC. Do guys on the lower tiers and especially the B leagues get a huge benefit from their universal healthcare programs? Does it really hurt American athletes?
