I know in some states MMA fighting is legal as long as the participants are not on drugs or drunk and sign a consent form in case something happens. I know in Texas(where I live) as long as money is not involved like betting or paying to participate it is legal to fight MMA style. I know a couple of guys who bought a wrestling ring and modified it with metal poles so know one gets knocked out of the ring. They have a show once a month with some rules and different people from around Houston show up to fight and test there skills. My buddy Brandon is 7-1 and I think they are trying to set up weight divisions but the people are that consistant about fighting every month. I just thought you guys should know this so you can check your local laws and see is you want to put on a show for yourself, I know there are alot of people who want to get into MMA. Good Luck.
