State (Hawaii) will oversee pro events

+

Hawaii revised its laws regarding MMA events, reducing the taxes on live events and establishing regulations similar to those in Nevada and California. The UFC was considering holding the Penn/St. Pierre II fight at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu but the high amount of taxes they would incur held them back. Hopefully now with the revisions, a big MMA event will come to Hawaii!
