I hope that you talk about what MMA was like in Oregon before regulation under Senate Bill 492 (2007) and what it's like now. How many states out there don't regulate amateur or pro MMA? I've seen people cleaning up blood from MMA bouts who weren't wearing gloves nor were competitors tested for blood borne diseases, and promoters would keep fights going when they should have been stopped, or didn't have medical personnel or transport on scene. Though I'd like to see this brutal "sport" banned in Oregon, I'm glad that Oregon has at least stepped in and brought some minimal sanity to these events.
