The Agony of the Injury: UFC's 2012 Badly Slowed by Health Woes   [View Full Version]

It doesn't take a statistical analysis to innately understand that injury woes have ravaged the UFC schedule in 2012. Still, with two-thirds of the year completed, a look at the numbers makes it clear exactly just how bad it has been.

So far this year, the UFC has had no fewer than 78 fights canceled due to injury, an MMA Fighting examination of records shows. To put that into perspective, that number of injuries is just two less than the total number of fights produced by the UFC in all of 2005...

It has seemed like a lot of fights fans wanted to have been a no go because of injuries this year. I usually forget about them though once the next event starts getting close.

This is a side affect of the new insurance policy the UFC just got.....hooray for progress.

When a fight like Palhares-Okami gets scrapped, whatever. It's the main events that have been killing it. Belfort-Wanderlei 2, Henderson-Jones, Faber-Cruz 3, the whole UFC 146 main card.... It's been rough.

The UFC still puts on great shows though. 149 was the only event I can recall not thoroughly enjoying myself while watching. I think the bigger issue is guys not fighting who can.

Why is Anderson Silva sitting out 2012? Oh yeah, he wants to wait for a fucking welterweight. Jones won't step up and fight a one dimensional wrestler who never finishes. JDS, who knows why the fuck he isn't fighting. The Velasquez rematch is there, and probably should have happened by now. There is 0 reason not to. Zuffa's coddling and keeping inactive champions (Condit, Barao too) is a bigger detriment to the sport.

Does any one know the details of this policy?

For instance, does the injury have to be diagnosed by a UFC doctor or can the athletes regular physician declare that they need to withdraw due to injury.

If I were the UFC, I would insist that UFC doctors ok the injury prior to agreeing to pay for treatment.

I'm 99.9% sure that is how it works. I believe fighters are also treated by the UFC's doctors, who are all going to be top tier.

Ok, I was sorta figuring thats the way it would work but I just don't know enough about the system.
