Smacks of socialism to me! Via MMA Payout:
The Sports Business Daily reports that the UFC will expand coverage of its health care insurance for its fighters to cover pre-existing conditions. The move will increase Zuffa’s premiums by an estimated 60 percent. It’s not known how much Zuffa pays for health insurance for its fighters but White indicated that its upwards of $1 million. The news came at the start of the UFC Fighter Summit.
Well that’s good news for a lot of fighters. I figured it was worth giving it a bit of attention since most of the news surrounding this year’s fighter summit has to do with several of the kooky corporate speakers and how many fighters were bored out of their skulls through the entire process.
