UFC Fighters Visit Brain Treatment Center



Fort Campbell’s Warrior Resiliency and Recovery Center and National Intrepid Center of Excellence satellite welcomed four guest Ultimate Fighting Championship fighters this week to the traumatic brain injury treatment center. The UFC guest fighters were visiting Fort Campbell before the “Fight for the Troops” event Wednesday.

The Warrior Resiliency and Recovery Center is transitioning to the National Intrepid Center of Excellence satellite site, known as the Intrepid Spirit, once construction is complete in 2014. The center is being funded by donations from the American people.

Officials greeted UFC fighters Chuck Liddell, Forrest Griffin, Jim Miller and Fredson Paixao, noting that they have the responsibility for the treatment of all concussions in the 30,000 plus soldier based population. Officials went on to point out that 85-percent of soldier concussions occur off the battlefield.

The fighters were able to walk alongside of soldiers who have received TBI treatment to gain a better understanding of how Soldiers work to retrain their brains with Logan’s team.
