Ron Kruck Interviews Sen. John McCain About Professional Fighting-Related Brain Injuries Exclusively on AXS TV’s Inside MMA, Tonight

LOS ANGELES – Feb. 7, 2014 – Following the news of Sen. John McCain’s support of the Professional Fighters Brain Health Study, AXS TV’S Ron Kruck exclusively interviews McCain on INSIDE MMA, tonight at 9 p.m. ET (6 p.m. PT). Questions will range from the controversial subject of brain injuries in mixed martial arts to whether McCain, who boxed at the Naval Academy, would have tried MMA if it had been around in his early years.

“When MMA was in its infancy, Senator John McCain was one of the sport’s most vocal opponents,” said Kruck, “but with the addition of the unified rules and other regulations, he has changed his stance and has become a big fan. To interview him in our nation’s capital about the Professional Fighters Brain Health Study was an honor.”
This week’s episode of INSIDE MMA also features interviews with UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, undefeated UFC fighter Daniel Cormier and former Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren.
