As I was perusing ESPN's MMA section to see it for the first time, I came across a story that I had not seen on here yet, I immediately had to make a fan post, being a resident of BC.
Jake Rossen writes:
The clown car is still emptying out in North Vancouver, British Columbia, where officials actually disbanded the athletic commission Monday.
"I've watched enough of [Ultimate Fighting Championship] channel surfing to know that I find it repugnant … barbaric," Councilwoman Pam Bookham told local media.
It appears there is a lot more to be done in Vancouver to legitimize MMA in the future, it is a shame that this one councilor thinks that her opinion can dictate the entire province's viewpoint.
Link to Rossen's article here.
If anyone has a way to get in contact with the councilor, or perhaps someone involved with the AC to find new information and complete confirmation about the state of MMA in BC, it would be great. Also I hope Dana White gets on his unicorn and flies to BC to save the day. This is a really bad day for MMA for me.
