I'm in Indiana and am looking for the regulations for MMA (amateur specifically)

Whoever is first to help me out with a link to an official rules listing will get props. That's right! PROPS!

By the way, if someone can give another link supporting the same info I will also send you props.

Ok. It looks like you need to apply at the newly formed Indiana Athletic Commission which falls under the Indiana Gaming Commission. There website is
here
that link will take you to the page where they have the applications. Unfortunately, it looks like the mma applications are not done yet. You can probably find a number on that site to call and see if they can send you a paper application or whatever they are having people do until the apps. become available.

Good luck

Usually you can get away with an old version, but it looks like the Indiana legislature changed some of the wording and revamped the commission.
