Cage Warriors Unplugged 2 Heralds Almost 3 Years of Fighter Brain Scans

Last night, Cage Warriors returned to the BT Studios, in London, almost three years after it introduced mandatory brain scans for professional competitors for an event at the same venue in 2016.

Cage Warriors Unplugged 2 heralds the promotion’s unwavering, voluntary commitment to athlete safety in a landscape where the sport of MMA remains unrecognised and unregulated: The introduction of brain scanning processes in the United Kingdom has required the overcoming of numerous challenges due to the sport’s unrecognised status. Cage Warriors and its competitors, alongside Safe MMA and medical partners, have worked against the odds to establish an infrastructure for MMA competitors, as well as the most affordable options.

Matchmaker Ian Dean commented, yesterday:

“Once again I’m pleased that all our fighters have been cleared to the Safe MMA Mark 3 standard ahead of tonight’s CW Unplugged 2 event.

“This was the venue where Cage Warriors introduced brain scans for the first time back in December 2016 and thanks to the diligence of our athletes and Safe MMA staff and other medical professionals we are able to do this once again.” 

As reported by Safe MMA;

16 PROFESSIONAL COMPETITORS HAVE PROVIDED MEDICAL DOCUMENTATION AS DETAILED BELOW, WHICH HAS BEEN INDEPENDENTLY VERIFIED AND ACCEPTED BY SAFE MMA IN ADVANCE OF CAGE WARRIORS UNPLUGGED 2 – DUE TO TAKE PLACE AT THE BT SPORT STUDIOS, LONDON, ENGLAND ON FRIDAY, 6TH SEPTEMBER 2019:
