SC on the way to lifting MMA Ban
This is something I originally posted for MMAFrenzy, but I wanted to re-post it here, I hope you don’t mind, Kris.
The bill in the South Carolina State Legislature for the lifting of the state’s MMA ban hit the house floor yesterday, and was passed Unanimously in a 57-0 vote, according to MMAJunkie. The bill still has to pass the state’s Senate, which is expected, before going into effect, making the Palmetto state the 38th state in the country to regulate MMA.
The state will join Tennessee and Pennsylvania as some of the most recent states to regulate MMA. There are a few states that don’t have athletic commissions and therefore don’t regulate MMA, but also don’t ban it.
