New MMA Law Starts Today In Iowa

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) A new law for mixed martial arts goes in effect today.

The Iowa Athletic commission now has the authority to regulate amateur mma fights.

Competitors will be required to pass a physical before they square off and they have to be at least 18 years old. It will also force promoters to carry insurance.

Of course many of the mixed martial arts fights you see including Iowa Challenge already have these regulations in place
