Regulating MMA

This op-ed appeared on Fightland, a blog devoted to MMA; the author is the newly appointed commissioner/executive director of the fledgling state commission to regulate combat sports in Wyoming. One interesting point in the piece is how state regulation is necessary not so much for high-level competition (the author is not necessarily expecting UFC to come to Wyoming anytime soon), but for low-level amateur competitions among weekend athletes.
