MMA: Dangerous Sport

With MMA now on the road to being legal in New York, with legal fights like boxing matches, it's important to realize what the consequences will be for the fighters and their families. In Dublin, a mixed martial arts fight from Portugal died from injuries sustained three days ago, during a fight. The fight authorities stopped the fight, the fighter was assessed by doctors and medical staff at the onsite medical office, and transported to the hospital. Even still, this was not enough.

New York has very stringent rules regarding the ability for individuals who are injured playing in sports to recover in Court for their injuries. In general, people who are injured while playing a sport cannot sue, even for negligence, if they are injured while playing a sport. When MMA comes to New York, there will be people who will suffer serious injuries and will not be able to hold the authorities responsible unless there is a significant deviation from what is normal in the sport.
