Vermont becomes state No. 46 to regulate MMA

Vermont is the latest state to approve the regulation of MMA.

UFC officials today announced the state recently passed a bill to regulate MMA through the Vermont Legislature.

Although the country's second-least populous U.S. state, "The Green Mountain State" is now the 46th to regulate MMA.

Only three state athletic commissions (in New York, Connecticut and Montana) currently don't regulate MMA, and one (Alaska) lacks a regulatory body to do so. Vermont joins other recent adopters, including Wyoming, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Alabama.

"Vermont's legislation of the sport of MMA is further evidence of the continued growth and success of our sport in this country," UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta stated. "We are pleased that fans in Vermont will now have the opportunity to watch a live UFC event in their own backyard and look forward to making that happen."

Currently home to just approximately 626,000 residents, Vermont sits on the eastern border of New York.

The biggest cities include Burlington (42,000 residents) and Essex (20,000), though it's unclear if Zuffa considers either big enough to host a Zuffa event. Still, the new regulation could open the door for a bigger regional scene to produce prospects from the state.

"We are thrilled with the state of Vermont becoming the 46th state to regulate the sport of mixed martial arts,” UFC vice president of government and regulatory affairs Marc Ratner stated. "We look forward to working with their athletic commission in forming the rules and regulations of this great sport."
