Australian State bans cage fights
"I have never approved and will not be approving any combat sport competitions staged in cages," he said.
"Contests in cages do not fit with our long-term aims for the industry."
Mr Merlino said that any promoter or organisation staging a caged combat sport event would face fines of up to $12,000 or 12 months' imprisonment, or both.
This sounds like MMA could still happen in a ring. I wonder how the ban is written, because from this it sounds like you could have an event with pretty much the same rules in a ring (not a cage) and call it pankration or something like that that won't upset the bleeding hearts. It still sucks though.
I so thought it was gonna be WA.
whats up vic? what the dilly-o?
We're in Australia, now?

That's what i'm thinking. Looking past the fact that this ban is completely idiotic, it's really half-assed too apparently.

Or ban wooden swords again.
