How many states have banned the UFC?

Just wondering about this one ... although the event can be watched on PPV nationwide, is it true that most states still have outlawed what they call "extreme" fighting? I think the UFC got a bad rap from the early days when it was bare knuckle street fighting, lock a small guy in with another weighing like 50 pounds more. I think some of the politicians don't see this as a legitimate sport ... MMA will be always held back if this is the case

sherdog has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Many parts of Canada don't allow it either... That is why many of us consider Montréal, Quebec to be the fight capital of Canada... of course, you can still practice it...

I don't know, my state (Washington) kicked out Toughman competitions, but we allow cage fighting. We actually always have ametuer mma

I think it's more that they aren't sanctioned in many states. To say that it's banned makes it sound like they had it going and made them stop.

It has become a very legit sport and with that comes governing bodies. Not all states sanction it but it's growing fast.
