“The Association of Ringside Physicians (an international, non-profit organisation dedicated to the health and safety of the combat sports athlete) sets forth this consensus statement to establish management guidelines that ringside physicians, fighters, referees, trainers, promoters, sanctioning bodies and other healthcare professionals can use in the ringside
setting. We also provide guidelines for the return of a combat sports athlete to competition after sustaining a concussion.” The document includes definitions and clarifications of key terms, a review of literature, a review of current practices, and a return to fighting protocol.
