This is my first ever request for a blog. Thanks to the MMA Lockup
crew for this chance to share some combat sports observations, from the
perspective of a ringside physician.
My interest in MMA was rekindled when my wife and I attended UFC 40.
Not only was the card great, but we met Rampage, the Janitor, Chuck,
Tank Abbott, Joe Rogan, and Dana White. What a unique sport!
Then, a classic case of right place/right time. California agreed to
sanction MMA in 2006. The California State Athletic Commission needed docs to work shows in Northern California–perfect for me.
I thoroughly enjoy working all size shows, and athletes of all different skill levels. For every UFC/WEC/Strikeforce, there are
many more “local” shows, that are exciting as well.
As already mentioned, I will share some stories, which I hope are of interest to those who enjoy MMA, and over time, would like to try an
answer questions of readers, who would like the view point from
a doc, working cage side.
