IMMAA, SAFEMMA and the Neuroscience society invite the Irish MMA community to a free afternoon lecture series on Friday 6th January, 2017.
“For some time fight fans and promoters have recognized a peculiar condition occurring among prize fighters which, in ring parlance, they speak of as “punch drunk.” Fighters in whom the early symptoms are well recognized are said to be “cuckoo,” “goofy,” “cutting paper dolls,” or “slug nutty.”
These words were penned in 1928 by the American pathologist Dr Martland. The purpose of our meeting is to provide fighters and coaches with up-to-date information, examples of real life cases, and practical advice on this “peculiar condition” now known as CTE.
