Jeff Monson detailed his ordeal at a Russian hospital, after suffering a broken leg in his fight with Fedor Emelianenko

After the fight I had a choice of two hospitals. One for everyday folks and one for visitors and government officials. I picked the local everyday folk hospital as I was told it was closer to the arena.

I’m obviously not a big fan of the medical industrial complex in the US as it is profit driven however, the experience at this hospital did make me appreciate the comfort of health care in this country.

Upon arrival there were ER staff smoking in the lobby. The hallways were full of wandering patients that looked like they were just out of a civil war battle. I had to fight with one of the doctors to avoid having my skull x-rayed. Eventually I got an x-ray for my leg which showed it was broken (something I already knew) and had it casted. I got 16 stitches on the inside and outside of my lip with a material that could of passed for chicken wire. It was so sharp it was making my gums bleed so I took them out myself. Saying that, the doctors were very kind and despite the inadequate medical equipment/supplies they knew what they were doing.

"In before the right-winger explosion."<br /><br />Seriously. Fundamentalist right wingers are gonna use this and the mountain of other anecdotal evidence, to trot out their racist, chauvinist, anti-animal rights agenda about how you should be 'justly' compensated for your work even if you're a doctor. <br /><br /><br />

I don't understand. Are you saying that doctors shouldn't be justly compensated for their work?

So at least US healthcare beats the worst medical service you can get in piss poor Russia.

And that's supposed to be comforting?

"There’s a big rumor reported by the media that I beat up two police officers to help a homeless man. The truth is a homeless man was being assaulted by police in the subway. I grabbed his hand and pulled him up and walked with him for a bit but I never talked to or touched the officers." - Jeff Monson

That's awesome.  It takes a huge heart and giant nut sack to do something like that.  I'd vote that fucker up if I could. 

And to think, dozens and dozens of people stepped over a dying man in Walmart on Black Friday

That doctor probably took one look at all of his tattoos, and said: "this man needs his head examined."

Well obviously the US healthcare system is going to look good in comparision to some shithole in Russia but things are not this black and white. The free healthcare systems of places like Canada and most western european countries are of excellent quality.
