Oklahoma AC freezing MMA starting March 31
After March 31st of this year, combat sport competitions will come to a grinding halt in the state of Oklahoma. It seems the UFC wants the state to drop a 4% pay-per-view tax imposed by the state, but without it… they will no longer have the funds necessary to regulate any boxing or MMA events held in Oklahoma.
This move will effect nearly 200 events that happen each year across Oklahoma, and if the UFC and the state can’t come to terms… promoters will have to take their business onto tribal grounds and casinos where they have their own regulations.
