Ringside Physicians are asked to conduct pre-fight physical examinations of mixed martial arts and boxing competitors. They review submitted medical testing to approve applicants for competition. Ringside Physicians observe the competition and respond to medical needs; including advice to referees on the continuation of a bout after injuries. They also perform post-competition examinations to determine if a competitor must be temporarily or permanently suspended from further competition.
