April 26, 2012 2:49 pm by Lorenzo Luciano

The California bill AB2100, is aimed at protecting professional MMA fighters in California from exploitive business practices. Some of these legal protections have already been granted to professional boxers under another law named after boxing great Muhammad Ali, “Muhammad Ali Boxing Reform Act of 2000”.

The bill was approved by a vote of 5 to 2 and will next go to the Assembly Committee on Approbations.

Some other professional MMA fighters also stood against the bill including Matt Hughes and Chuck Liddell.

Included is a video of Ronda Rousey’s testimony in front of the California State Assembly.
