Its hardly surprising his injured, somebody should tell him thats what happens when you try to shoulder charge through walls. Idiot.

I feel sorry for anyone living in a country without a good public health system.

Seriously. They have the video of him voluntarily running into the wall (multiple times if I'm not mistaken). If TUF and the insurance company cannot be exonerated by that, then who the hell will be ever be able to afford insurance?

It has kept me out of many fights not having health insurance. If I had it I would have many more street fights.
Old Simpsons where Bart gets a Big Brother volunteer and Homer fights the guy. The Big Brother says you talk preetty tough for a guy without health insurance. Homer comes back with I have state assistance. Kills me every time.

All that running into the walls won't help his case.

I cant see him getting to far with that case. All I remember of this guy is him telling the camera that he has a degenerate spine/neck and may not be able to fight again. Then he's running head first into the wall... What a tool. He's looking for hand outs. He should be grateful that the UFC/Dana gave him the opportunity. I am not impressed by old Crazy Eyes.

He should be suing the alcohol company for making him run into walls.

i see this being settled out of court with tuf sending mikey the episode where he took pete spratt's idea to charge through a wall and failed miserably, 3 times. who advised him this would be a smart move? i guess it's better than wasting whatever money you have left on alcohol but he's gotta be an idiot...

If the UFC provided Burnett with alchohol, or if it is stated in the insurance policy that the fighters are covered completely in regards to all injuries sustained in the house he might have a case.

Regardless of the legality, it still seems like a frivolous lawsuit at this point.

Agreed.

They should counter-sue him for the damage he did to their property.
