The UFC and Ontario

2010-03-19

The following Queen’s University expert is available to discuss the UFC and other mixed martial arts events being unsanctioned in Ontario.
The UFC and OntarioLaw professor Arthur Cockfield can speak to the fact that Ontario is not looking to regulate mixed martial arts (MMA) while other provinces, and most U.S. states, have chosen to do so. He can also speak to evidence that suggests that MMA is no more dangerous than boxing as long as proper rules are in place.
