Athletic Commission to Review Kirkham Fight

Posted on June 29, 2010


Following up on yesterday’s story, Ray Hui of reports that the Commission will be investigating the fight that ended the life of Michael Kirkham.

South Carolina’s guidelines require a physical and eye exam prior to the event and documentation to prove a competitor is negative for HIV and Hepatitis B and C.

The MMA Legislation currently fighting to get through State Government in New York does require that all facilities training competitors in preparation for a professional fight be licensed by the State. As far as I can tell, South Carolina does not have such a provision. If it does, there’s a serious question of enforcement.
