Trouble is afoot in Clovis, New Mexico:

Clovis Mayor David Lansford is one of the sport's critics, and he wanted it put on the policy committee's agenda so there could be a clear policy for or against it.

"I think mixed martial arts is an activity that is a destructive activity for participants and spectators alike," Lansford said. "I think as a society, we're becoming more violent. This activity certainly doesn't help to rectify that problem."

MMA is actually legal and regulated in New Mexico. This mayor wants to change that for his city.
