Not every camp is going to bring their own on, the show provides their own EMT staff after all. But it could be as simple as the fact that he's very experienced with MMA-specific training safety and injury mitigation. I imagine working with Team Jackson for years as a medic would give you a particular angle on sports medicine.

Just as an example, there's a reason so many high-level fighters bring in Stitch or Leon Tabbs specifically instead of letting whoever happens to be available and local handle their cuts for the night. They want the best with the most relative experience.
