On Tuesday, June 5, legislation was approved unanimously by the House Regulatory Reform Committe to allow mixed martial arts matches in Michigan.

Rep. Barbara Farrah was the sponsor of both bills and said that it will help bring income to Michigan's economy crisis, as it is the fastest growing sport in the US.

Kenny Florian and Marc Ratner (UFC VP) testified to the panel. Go Kenflo!

Kenny testified that he was hurt more during soccer than in MMA.

Their next concern that will be addressed is the process of establishing quality refs and judges. They may need to participate in several amateur matches before getting involved in a pro fight.
