Tennessee To Become MMA-Legal

State of Tennessee

In another positive step in making mixed martial arts legal in all 50 states, the State of Tennessee -effective Tuesday – will have in place a state athletic commission; the measure will in effect legalize and regulate MMA events throughout the state.  Despite the approval of Governor Phil Bredesen, there were concerns – minor as they were – over a provision to require one-half of any money beyond what’s needed to operate the commission to go towards grants to NCAA Division I wrestling programs. In any event, the folks in the state of Tennessee can look forward to MMA action as soon as tomorrow.  A good, positive step in the evolution of MMA here in the United States.
