How did Dada 5000 pass a prefight medical?

I always wonder how they find Doctors willing to sign off on fighters being totally fine after watching them take multiple shots to the head from cageside.... But in this case all I can imagine is the doctor looking at a sheet of alarming test results but assuming that a joke was being played on him coz it belonged to "Dada 5000" so he stamped it anyway.

I'm not sure which test would have revealed that his heart would be at the limit for this fight.
Are fight medicals that different from normal medicals? Do they actually challenge a person's fitness at all?

Part of me wants to believe that since the dude's going into an MMA fight, that the doctor would assume he's fit.

UFC's most strict about this, everybody else at best has it as a minor priority. It's why people like Kimbo, Shamrock, Gracie, Tito, and probably Kurt are all still fighting: none of these other companies will tell them no

It's up to the commission to tell them no and the Texas board is garbage. Before Pettis/RDA they were proudly advertising how Texas doesn't drug test

This got me wondering what any one commission would have to do for the other commissions to speak up in some way, kind of along the lines in which commssions enforce each others' suspensions: "Texas, you're too hosed up and someone is going to die. Fix your poo poo or we're no longer going to recognize your ____" or something.

I can't fill in that blank, though.

Does Texas use instant replay? Is Gracie/Shamrock going to get turned into NC because he went down from a groin shot?

A quick and lazy google found the WBFs prefight medical info: http://www.worldboxingfederation.ne...-guidelines.htm

I imagine its more a medical testing for disease as opposed to workplace fitness etc.

The info I have read so far is that Dada had massively high post fight potassium levels so I would assume he gave himself rhabdomyolysis from over exerting himself in the fight which put him into an arrhythmia. So yeah he probably could of benefited from the medical you have to do to work at a supermarket or whatever.

Edit - from
http://mmajunkie.com/2016/02/after-...o-renal-failure

“The doctors have now informed us that Dada had accumulated extremely high levels of potassium in his blood which led to severe dehydration, fatigue and renal failure,” the statement reads. “The high potassium levels were likely caunsed by his 40(-pound) weight loss in preparation for the fight.”

"Fighters are required to submit medical documentation that proves they are medically fit to compete; 5000 hadn’t fought professionally in five years when he stepped into the cage against Slice."

So it's the honour system for the fighters to clear themselves to fight? And I would guess they had no prefight ECGs, or blood or urine tests coz they would of all potentially showed the excess potassium.

Bellator mostly operates in locations of very little regulation, like native american casinos or states with lovely athletic commissions. I think there's probably a real story here but MMA Journalism

He recently admitted it's not completely ruled out, which is enough: http://www.miamiherald.com/sports/f...le57866313.html

quote:

My next date is February in Houston. The main event is Royce Gracie vs. Ken Shamrock. Iíll be commentating some on that night. They are having me get my feet wet. Maybe later down the road, if I do decide to fight, the chances are one percent that I fight and 99 that I donít. I donít plan on fighting, but if I feel good, my body is going well I might consider it down the road. But right now Iíll say no. But I do enjoy being part of Bellator. They have their own theory with what they want to do. They take chances, and I love it. They are different.

When it comes down to it, look, I am 47-years-old. Kenny and Gracie are in their early 50ís, Dan Severn is in his early mid-50s. Of course, I am not going to wrestle or fight someone in his prime. Itís not going to happen. It will be one of the older guys. But it will be a hell of fight whether its Kimbo Slice, Ken Shamrock, Dan Severn or whoever it is or even Rocye Gracie. But if I do decide to do it, it will be with a Hall of Famer, not someone in their prime.
