    "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.

    Does that mean I get to call girls "shelias"?

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