The growing popularity of Mixed Martial Arts has not escaped the attention of lawmakers from Maine.
The State is now planning to bring the sport to its jurisdiction because of its huge potential for big revenues.
Maine representative Sen. John Patrick said: “It’s like Texas Hold ‘em was years ago. We now have tournament games in Maine and we’re following with the tide. I think it’s a national thing that people seem to enjoy and there’s a lot of competitors out there, one being state representative Matt Peterson’s brother, Jessie.”
As of this writing, Maine’s labor, research, commerce, and economic committee is considering the Mixed Martials Arts Bill.
