<a href=http://mmajunkie.com/news/23536/ufc-announces-accident-insurance-coverage-for-all-350-contracted-fighters.mma>MMAJunkie.com</a> has all the details regarding Zuffa's announcement today that they will offer insurance and accident coverage to all 250+ fighters they have under contract:<Br><Br>


Officials from Zuffa LLC, the UFC and Strikeforce's parent company, today announced all of its contracted fighters now get accident-insurance coverage. The company's fighters learned of the additional coverage today at the four-day "fighter summit" in Las Vegas.<Br><Br>

That means training injuries ? which are costly and not previously covered by their independent-contractor agreements ? will be picked up by the organization.<Br><Br>

"Our athletes are some of the very best in the world, and we've committed significant financial resources to provide them with insurance that complements the gold standard we have set for event-related coverage," UFC Chairman and CEO Lorenzo Fertitta stated in today's announcement. "We're pleased to provide coverage that enables our athletes to seek and receive treatment for injuries sustained while preparing for bouts."
