Ultimate Fighting


Summary: The sport of ultimate fighting failed in an attempt to be sanctioned under the Minnesota Boxing Commission. It was not sanctioned because the commissioner does not know enough about ultimate fighting to properly regulate it.

Challenge: There was no information about the other states that sanctioned ultimate fighting. The article made mention that it was sanctioned under 22 states.

Comparison: The Star & Tribune reported that “Biting, head butting, poking eyes and punching spines, groins or kidneys are not allowed in ultimate fighting… most everything else --including punching a downed fighter in the head -- goes.?

Opinion: This was an unsuccessful article because it had no focus. It never went into detail the problems that could arise from sanctioning ultimate fighting in Minnesota. The article just said that it was very dangerous.
