Newbury Man Let Teens Hold UFC Fights in his Home

According to the Bostonherald.com:
A Massachusetts man says he allowed his teenage son and several other boys to hold supervised fights at his home because he believed it would be safer than if they had fought on their own. James Dexter (pictured), of Newbury, was charged with child endangerment...

Dexter said his 16-year-old son and some of his friends were planning to hold fights styled after the popular Ultimate Fighting Championship. So he let the boys fight in a 12-by-12 foot room in his home, wearing fingerless boxing gloves and mouth guards, and with rules intended to prevent serious injury.

Police began investigating in March after the local high school principal reported that the boys had come to school with black eyes, bruises and cuts.
