if what he said about UFC doing underhanded sneaky shit to save a few thousand bucks on his knee operation is true, they have some serious explaining to do. That is really, really terrible.


Get on here and straighten things out DFW!

And the stuff he said about Evan Tanner... really makes me reconsider my appreciation of this sport.

We have to be better than that.

that was another sketchy part of the interview if you ask me, he made it seem like the UFC wouldn't pay for his injury in the fight, but if I was him I would have pushed harder thats something that could stick with you for life

According to Jason they made his MRI results disappear. How do you suggest he push harder? Pay for another set of MRIs on his own dime? That costs upwards of 13-1,500 dollars depending where you go. Not a ton of money but to a fighter that just retired that cash flow is no laughing matter.

I really hope you aren't suggesting it is his fault they didnt pay for his knee operation.

His supporting evidence that the UFC was screwing him over was "the doctor was silent" when ask why he hadn't received the results.
Not very credible evidence IMO.

Far better interview though, still think he's got some issues, but much better.

He stated that he didn't even pursue it any further. He didn't call the UFC to see whats up, didn't call the MRI tech to see whats up, he just assumed it was a screw job.

I don't think it was his fault, I think he just made the wrong assumption as to happened.

Did we watch the same interview? Have any of you been to the doctor before? It is a crime to lose your medical records! That shit simply doesnt happen. A very close friend of mine was a ward secretary for over a year. Losing any information on a patient is subject to termination, and can result in criminal charges if said loss was not as a result of negligence.

I suppose you guys could easily answer for me then why exactly he has not gotten his knee fixed? If UFC didn't screw him over medical insurance, what is his motivation for not using his company-provided accident insurance?

There is no answer!

He didn't get it fixed because he stated that he didn't pursue it further.

That makes no sense whatsoever.

 

 

Either the UFC insurance covers something or it doesn't.  Their only obligation is to pay their premiums and/or deductables.  The UFC have no financial obligations beyond that.  There is no financial incentive for them to jerk around Mayhem. 

 

Of course, the insurance provider is another story.  Having worked in the health care field, I have no doubt whatsoever that an insurance provider was willing to do shady shit to save a few bucks.  Unfortunately, that's just how the American health care system works.  People pay for insurance, insurance companies nickle and dime the hospitals to hold down costs, and the people who need the medical care get screwed.

 

Sucks for Mayhem, but he is blaming the wrong people.  It's not Zuffa's fault the system is broken.

Dana,

Here are all of the medial records I have for Jason.

We paid for his MRI and Doctors visits. At his last appointment Dr. Limpisvasti told him he needed to bring in his films to review before any surgical decisions were made, which he never did. At this point without Dr. Limpisvasti seeing the films I am not sure how he is saying we denied a surgery that has not been requested yet.


Thank you,

But for real, Jason should have pushed it further.  A doctor being "silent" and "asking for your CD" should not be a "dead end."  Push further, get the CD or find out where it is... but the dr. being silent shouldn't be the end all that makes you go through the rest of your life injured.

And IF the dr is "screwing you" then lawyer up... if they provide insurance, then your knee injury during a fight is covered.

Either way, I'd never let it stop there.
