Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com blog. This week, Breen is joined by Luke Thomas of MMAFighting.com and SiriusXM Radio.
On Monday, the Cleveland Clinic announced a Feb. 4 press conference in Washington, D.C., to ensure the continuation of its research on traumatic brain injury in MMA and boxing. The landmark meeting, featuring rival promoters from all over the combat sports world, including the UFC's Lorenzo Fertitta. Breen and Thomas size up the potential impact of the presser, the catalysts behind it happening and what long-term impact for the sport could be. The two look at the NFL's reaction to its own brain saga, how it relates to MMA, how MMA rules might change over time and what it means for young athletes looking to enter the cage.
Breen and Thomas also investigate brain trauma's relationship with the use of performance enhancing drugs in modern sport, how PED's and brain trauma might go hand-in-hand in MMA, Dana White's reading list, Vitor Belfort's licensure and much, much more.
