I just thought that I should bring this up to everyone's attention especially all of the schools and promoters on here that West Virginia is considering legalizing MMA. Anybody that is a student or fan of MMA in West Virginia better get a hold of their local politicians to get MMA legalized for the expansion of the sport.

 Fights are still banned in WV. In order to have a fight that is legal you have to have event regulated cage (at least 3ft off ground), no smaller then 20ft. Oh yeah and pay a 50k bond for your event. Good luck. as for right now there is no MMA in WV. You can still have illegal fights at your place no one is stoping anyone with that but it is illegal and if someone gets hurt you (gym) is liable. Hate to say it but everyone will still be going to OH, Va, Ky, NC, Pa to fight. No since beating a dead horse.
