Georges St Pierre vs Jake Shields UFC 129While New York sits in a quagmire of politics over regulating mixed martial arts, Vermont has become the 46th state to regulate the sport. UFC officials announced the news on Friday.

“Vermont’s legislation of the sport of MMA is further evidence of the continued growth and success of our sport in this country,” said UFC Chairman and CEO Lorenzo Fertitta. “We are pleased that fans in Vermont will now have the opportunity to watch a live UFC event in their own backyard, and look forward to making that happen.”

“We are thrilled with the state of Vermont becoming the 46th state to regulate the sport of Mixed Martial Arts,” said Marc Ratner, UFC Senior Vice President of Government and Regulatory Affairs. “We look forward to working with their athletic commission in forming the rules and regulations of this great sport.”

Only New York and Connecticut remain unregulated, while Alaska and Wyoming lack the necessary regulatory bodies to oversee the sport.
