MMA fans in Vancouver, BC, Canada will now have to go elsewhere to get their MMA fix. MMA won't be sanctioned in the city anymore, effective today.

This probably will affect the smaller promotions the most, although I can see it as a small setback to UFC's plans to expand up north even though right now their primary commitment seems to be to Montreal.

This is complete BS.

We have a lot of good fighters here in BC and they keep having to go to Alberta to fight. Good job Vancouver what a way to show the world you are actualy ready for the olympics. Dumb S#*#s.

Damn ignorant fascists!
Yeah, NY state lawmakers and the athletic commission are pretty audacious and rude when it comes to MMA as well.
Whatever happened to freedom?
Hmmmm........

This is really disapointing. I thought it was just a matter of time until the UFC came to Van City. This province is so ******* backwards about it's priorities. BOOO URNS!

Van. will eventually switch there decision on this, but how long it will take is unclear. I live in alberta and I know that when we have a fight card over here that are always a few fighters from BC and they are usually very exciting to watch. Good for me bad for BC.
