    MMA back in Ohio

    http://www.sherdog.com/news/news.asp?n_id=4835

    Ending nearly two months of uncertainty for the sport in Ohio, the state athletic commission this week voted unanimously to remove the moratorium placed upon mixed martial arts events in the Buckeye State.

    Along with the immediate reinstatement of MMA, the Ohio Athletic Commission, led by Executive Director Bernie Profato, approved a new set of rules designed to raise the bar for fighter safety, including officially adding the two weigh-in system that debuted at March's Gracie Fighting Championships and making a five-rope ring mandatory for all contests not held in a cage or fenced in area.

    According to the commission’s Web site, “The director and the commission members felt in removing the moratorium they would be recognizing the efforts of many who have helped raise the standards in Ohio and wish to continue to be one of the leading states in the sport of Mixed Martial Arts.”

    This week’s progress, which comes on the heels of the news that the Colorado State Athletic Commission put an end to amateur competition in its state, could clear a path for the International Fight League’s Columbus Razorclaws, coached by PRIDE and UFC tournament champion Mark Coleman, to run a show in the Ohio's capital this winter.
    Anyone in Ohio that can reap the benefits?

    I don't recall MMA shows shutting down, but I do know that there were a lot of discussions going on in regards to rules and such. There is an MMA event tonight in the Cincinnati area called ICE. They have MMA shows here almost every other month.

    Yeah. I didn't know there was a moratorium. What was it? For a week somewhere? Hell, they had king of the cage in Cleveland last year. The local hung gar school does an annual MMA contest (fists against hunger).

    So I don't know what they're talking about.
