More Trouble in New York


From the Facebook of someone in New York in the know:
Supplying bloodwork for Hep B, Hep C and HIV in order to participate in amateur MMA event in NY is pretty much the norm. Problem is, not everyone is requiring bloodwork and that is a sad, stone cold fact. I know of one recent case that will be made public very soon, which I'll be sure to share any links when they become available.
I call for more up to date bloodwork, dated after participation with the shady promoters of the state. In other words... If a fighter's bloodwork IS up to date, but they've fought with a questionable promoter, require new bloodwork.
For the safety of the athletes and the officials, blackball those supporting the troublemakers or require more recent bloodwork.
It is sad that those that are making a conscious effort to be safe, may be putting others in harms way, without any knowledge of it.
