It was only a matter of time! While states like Nevada and California have long seen mixed martial arts as a valid offering and a way to earn income, there are still notable holdouts in major states’ acceptance of the sport. New York has yet to give the green light to MMA, though it’s expected to soon, as Washington DC has recently.

To wit, the first ever mixed martial event in Washington DC will be held May 12th at the DC Armory, after the DC Boxing & Wrestling Commission adopted the unified rules for MMA earlier this year. The event will offer fighters from Chute Boxe, American Top Team, and others, including fighters from local stand out BJJ organizations like Team Balance’s Tim Carpenter and Yamasaki’s Ron Foster.
