UFC Names Official Hospital

UFC on Monday announced that Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) will serve as the global brand’s first-ever official hospital. The new multi-year partnership provides UFC with access to the hospital’s sports medicine physicians, who will serve as orthopedic consultants in conjunction with the brand’s medical team.

“We are excited to partner with a world-class medical provider of HSS’ caliber,” UFC Chief Operating Officer Ike Lawrence Epstein said. “The health and safety of UFC athletes is our top priority, and this partnership further extends the best-in-class services available to the athletes both in and out of the Octagon.”

Founded in 1863, Hospital for Special Surgery is the world’s leading academic medical center dedicated to musculoskeletal health. HSS has been nationally ranked #1 for orthopedics for the past seven consecutive years by U.S. News World Report’s Best Hospital rating. HSS is currently ranked #2 in the nation for rheumatology.

“HSS’ purpose is to help people get back to what they need and love to do, better than any other place in the world,” said Louis A. Shapiro, HSS President and Chief Executive. “We are privileged to now support UFC as we do other high performing athletic organizations including the Brooklyn Nets, New York Giants, New York Knicks, New York Mets, New York Red Bulls, New York Road Runners and many others.”

HSS is the first designated National Medical Center of the United States Olympic Committee’s (USOC) National Medical Network, as well as a Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) Medical Centre of Excellence.

Bryan Kelly, M.D., Chief of the Sports Medicine Service at HSS, will serve as UFC’s Head Consulting Orthopedic Surgeon. He will lead a team of HSS orthopedic surgeons who will be on-call during UFC events for orthopedic consultation. HSS will also assist UFC in the recruitment and placement of physical therapists who will be onsite at the HSS Sports Rehabilitation Center at the UFC Performance Institute. As the world’s first mixed martial arts multi-disciplinary research, innovation and performance center, the Performance Institute is a state-of-the-art 30,000 square-foot facility provides benefits and services to all athletes competing under the UFC banner.

“Injuries are an inherent by product of playing sports especially at the elite and professional levels,” said Dr. Kelly.  “HSS has helped thousands of athletes get back in the game and offers unmatched orthopedic care. We look forward to working with the UFC to keep players healthy and safe.”

As the organization’s official hospital, HSS will receive branding on UFC’s world-famous Octagon at select events, as well as digital and social advertising, along with participating in UFC-based corporate social responsibility programs. For more information, please visit UFC.com.

Cris Cyborg Punched Angela Magana, Police Called at UFC Fighter Retreat

Cris “Cyborg” Justino and Angela Magana were reportedly involved in a physical altercation at the UFC Athlete Retreat over the weekend.

The incident apparently took place outside the fighter hotel when Cyborg confronted Magana over the numerous social media jabs she’s taken at Cyborg. Magana has consistently posted sharp comments about Cyborg’s past anti-doping infractions, as well as taking personal shots at her over her looks and the like. 

The two had words, which quickly escalated to the point of Cyborg punching Magana in the face. Some reports say she was wobbled, but didn’t go down, while Magana’s friend Bec Rawlings tweeted that, “Magana was not rocked… but does have a busted lip.” She later added that she thought Cyborg almost immediately regretted the incident.

Managa insisted that she did not call police, that UFC officials did, but she did press charges against Cyborg.

As of the time of publication, UFC officials had not responded to a request for comment on the situation.

  • Sounds like a loud mouth got what she deserved. It’s ashame Cyborg didn’t have the restraint to ignore her. Angela is right about one thing, this will probably be it for Cyborg with the UFC.

    • Why would it effect her UFC career?? It’s her personal life, she now has a legal issue to deal with and then back to work.

      • UFC has a tendency to suspend fighters involved in physical assault cases.

  • screw the UFC they only signed cyborg so they can hold her and not give here any fights, they know she would be the best female fighter they ever had, but the UFC is only into promoting prissy crossfit models instead of real fighters
