Vermont recently passed a bill to regulate MMA, becoming the 46th state to do so. "The Green Mountain State" joins Wyoming, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Alabama as recent states to do so.
"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 CEO Lorenzo Fertitta in a recent press release. "We are pleased that the 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."
Only New York, Connecticut and Montana are without state-regulated MMA, while Alaska is grouped in there as they do not have a state athletic commission at all.
