The team has also posted the criteria with which the protocol is designed. You can read the same below.

"The goal of this protocol is a safe return to Combat Sports training & eventually competitions without risking exacerbating symptoms.

WHAT IS A CONCUSSION?

Concussions occur following a trauma to the brain that leads to an alteration of regular brain function. The brain can take up to 30 days to resume regular brain function. Additional trauma to the brain while it is in an impaired state may lead to significantly worsening symptoms that can linger.

THE PROTOCOL EXPLAINED

The protocol is divided into 3 Phases which are further divided into 3 Steps at each Phase. A fighter should start Phase 1 a week from the initial concussion. A fighter can progress to the next step after 24 hours if there are no concussion symptoms. If symptoms increase then the fighter must regress one step. A fighter should not progress to Phase 3 if there are lingering concussion symptoms.

Fighters should get cleared by a medical professional trained in concussion management before returning to training/competition."
