Kinda, the thing with head bleeds is that you gotta get them into OR asap
Yeah, I'm no expert whatsoever, but I'd imagine you'd need a lot of high-tech equipment to help alleviate brain injuries. I don't think you can afford to do that in some shoddy truck or RV-thing.

Pretty much, hospitals are pretty good about getting suspected bleeds and strokes scanned within 15 minutes. The issue we've seen so far is hurrying up and getting them there. Not sure why the on-site doc didn't speak up earlier.

Not entirely how genes work. Either way, I'm sure you don't need genetic testing to know that it takes a lot to get punched in the head for a living. Boxers should know this from the start, hence why I'm against them bringing family members to fights.

It's a catch 22. If they ban gaining weight after the weigh-in or push the weigh in earlier, fighters will enter the ring dehydrated. It's difficult to control.
Nah. With hydration testing, you HAVE to weigh in hydrated. Just because a system isn't perfect, doesn't mean it's not a step forward.

Dehydration is the biggest culprit to brain damage, you're literally sweating/pissing out the fluid that creates a cushion between your brain and skill on top of the fluid that helps the rest of your organs function...that includes the brain.

I wasn't talking about hydration testing.
