well here in TN the legislators and such all see it is a finanical boost... Plus with Cities like Nashville where I live , Memphis... ( jackson ) as well as knoxville... That is 3 major cities that are capable of supporting a big show like the UFC.. plus I am already in touch with a smaller promoter who wants to hold Amature and low level pro fights in Nashville...

Congrats...

Strangely, mma has always been legal in Iowa but is just now getting sanctioned. Might put a damper on the "walk-in" bar fights, but hopefully we will see some more shows.
