MMA regulation coming to Indiana   [View Full Version]
grappler0000 » Posted 3/24/07 5:29:00PM

The state of Indiana appears to be headed toward full regulation for the sport of mixed martial arts. Senate Bill 160 was drafted primarily by Sen. Dennis Kruse of Auburn. It has been ratified, and regulation for MMA will take effect on the first day of July.

According to mmafacts.com, MMA is currently regulated in 32 states. A bill to add Hawaii to the list has passed that state’s legislature and is scheduled to go into effect later this year.

There are seven remaining states that do not regulate the sport.

They are: New York, Vermont, Massachusetts, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Rhode Island and Connecticut. However, in the case of Connecticut, the Mohegan Sun casino is on an Indian reservation and has run MMA shows.

There are also five states that have no athletic commission for MMA or boxing. Those are Alaska, Alabama, Wyoming, South Dakota and Maine.

Full regulation is a move those in the sport feel is necessary.

Thank you for shedding more light on this situation. I have family in New York who are mad as ever because Madison Square Garden can't hold an event their.
I have even written letters to the state assemblymen Reilly trying to help get it sanctioned there.
I have tried to give you props for this but the site wouldn't allow me to.

I know my state doesn't give the 1 pound leeway; you either make weight or don't for a fight.

Anyone know if this is common among states, or rare, as I haven't seen it elsewhere before ?

As the tourettes guy would say "SHIIIITFUCKKKEEERRR!!!" lol I don't want elbows and slams to be illegal in my state for amateurs.

I used to think they only gave a pound for title fights until I watched TUF for the first time. I really don't know the answer to that, sorry.
