With overwhelming votes in favor of the move, West Virginia is now the 45th U.S. state to regulate mixed martial arts.

After it recently passed the West Virginia legislation, Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin recently signed the bill into effect.

Only three state athletic commissions (New York, Connecticut and Vermont) currently don't regulate MMA, and two states (Alaska and Wyoming) lack regulatory bodies to do so.
