MMA Coming To Vancouver!

According to an article on Maximum Fighting dot com MMA is now legal in the city of Vancouver, British Columbia. This is a major win for MMA and fight fans living in Canada's second largest city where up until this measure passed MMA was illegal within city limits.

One more win for MMA in the Pacific Northwest where we have some of the greatest fighters on the planet!


The City of Vancouver has legalized MMA in Vancouver during their council session today. The motion to allow MMA on at two year trial basis was passed by a vote of 6-3. Councillors Meggs, Stevenson, Anton, Chow, Deal, Jang voted for MMA legalization, while Councillors Woodsworth, Reimer, Louie voted against MMA.

Smaller promotions may still be out of luck as they will have to purchase enough insurance to indemnify the City of Vancouver from any liabilities. There is no idea how much insurance would be required. The City Manager will determine the appropriate amount.

Earlier this week, a report was prepared for the Vancouver City Council that was very favorable to MMA. Today the Council debated the report and decided in favor of sanctioning MMA.

The Maximum Fighting Championship easily Canada top MMA organization and one of the biggest in North America will be applying immediately for a show in 2010.
