UFC Coming To Vancouver
The debate continues on with the potential of a UFC fight coming to Vancouver come June 2010. Since 2007 there’s been a ban here in Vancouver on MMA and the sport remains unregulated in BC, however the UFC has set a tentative date for a match to occur here.
Mayor Robertson has shown he supports it by voicing his intentions to hopefully have everything resolved by 2010 in order to host the event.
I personally think a lot of the people who oppose MMA are those that have only been exposed to it in its earlier forms. Since then there have been new rules implemented and matches in general are regulated better. It definitely has gotten away from the “anything goes” type of fighting to matches that exhibit far more technique and tactics.
What do you guys think? The comments on the CBC news article have blown up with people weighing in on both sides.
