Boston City Council Bans Spectators Under 16 from Attending MMA Events Without Adult
The Boston City Council Wednesday resolved to ban spectators under
the age of 16 from attending either amateur or professional mixed
martial arts events in the Massachusetts state capital without
being accompanied by an adult.
The resolution, which was posted online by The Republican reporter
Garrett Quinn, is the amended version of an original proposal that
sought to ban spectators under the age of 18 from attending MMA
events in the city of Boston. According to Quinn, the resolution
Proposed by Council President Stephen J. Murphy, the resolution
drew the ire of UFC President Dana White last week while he was
UFC Fight Night 26. That event, which took place at the TD
Garden in Boston, was headlined by Chael
Sonnen’s first-round submission victory over former light
heavyweight champion Mauricio
White and the UFC were forced to jump through several hoops in
order to make the Aug. 17 show happen, including securing social
security numbers for every international fighter on the card.
Though White was initially uncertain whether the promotion would
return to Boston given the difficulties in promoting Fight Night
26, the UFC boss stated at the post-fight press conference that the
organization would indeed come back to Beantown in the future.
