Vermont to Regulate Mixed Martial Arts

46 out of 48 States in U.S. with Regulatory Bodies Now Overseeing the Fastest-Growing Sport in the World...
Las Vegas, Nevada – The Ultimate Fighting Championship® applauds the lawmakers of the state of Vermont following the successful vote of a bill to regulate Mixed Martial Arts, which recently passed through the Vermont Legislature. The “The Green Mountain State” becomes the 46th in the U.S. to approve the fastest-growing sport in the world. 

“Vermont’s legislation of the sport of MMA is further evidence of the continued growth and success of our sport in this country,” said UFC Chairman and CEO Lorenzo Fertitta. “We are pleased that fans in Vermont will now have the opportunity to watch a live UFC event in their own backyard, and look forward to making that happen.”

“We are thrilled with the state of Vermont becoming the 46th state to regulate the sport of Mixed Martial Arts,” said Marc Ratner, UFC Senior Vice President of Government and Regulatory Affairs. “We look forward to working with their athletic commission in forming the rules and regulations of this great sport.”

The UFC has led the way in helping the sport of mixed martial arts gain regulation in the U.S. Only New York and Connecticut remain unregulated, while Alaska and Montana lack the necessary regulatory bodies to oversee the sport.
