UFC Bans Gun, Hunting Sponsors

UFC Bans Gun, Hunting Sponsors

There’s a report circulating on the internet that Ultimate Fighting Championships, a popular mixed-martial arts sport, will no longer allow its participants to be sponsored by shooting- and hunting-related companies. UFC is owned by Zuffa LLC

Here’s the report, which comes from the website, themmacorner. (Similar reports have surfaced on other MMA sites.)

“The MMA Corner has learned that the ban includes companies related to guns, knives, ammunition, and hunting. It will go into effect on Jan. 23. The ban has been extended to all UFC events, not just those broadcast on the Fox family of networks.”

We contacted the UFC press room at the address provided on its website to give the company an opportunity to respond, but no comment was received by the deadline we gave them. The website Cage Potato says UFC told them “These are rules set in place by Fox” but issued no further comment. Fox has the rights to televise many UFC events.

3. Yes the UFC is where noble civilized men and women

beat each other into submission or an unconscious state with their feet, legs, fists, elbows or knees.

It is rather civilized, as these athletes do not rely on their baser instincts to resolve conflict by using weapons.

5. That may be okay for consenting adults.

 

I'm not a consenting adult and never want to look like that on the street.
