France Bans MMA Under New Regulations On Combat Sports
Mixed Martial Arts, more commonly known as MMA has been banned in France as an official sport under the new combat sport regulations in the country.
This has caused the official MMA Federation in France to announce that they will be legally challenging the new laws put in place by the French Sports Ministry, reported Sky Sports.
Notably, MMA has gained popularity over the years due to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), which has been starred by Conor McGregor, Michael Bisping & Rhonda Rousey.
The latest French regulations, however, provide hindrance to the events of MMA in France. According to a press release released by the French Sports Ministry on Wednesday, the octagonal cages along with the integral techniques used in UFC has been outlawed for security and regulations.
"Fights will take place on a carpet or in a ring with three or four ropes. The corners of the ring will be protected,' the report read.
In addition, certain techniques like punches, kicks, blows to the genitals or spine has also been prohibited. Moreover, pulling the hair, biting or throwing the opponent out of the ring or on head and shoulders has also been prohibited in the new law.
CFMMA is also unrecognised by the state of France, meaning it does not qualify as a regular combat sport.
"It's amazing given the timing and it is disrespectful," CFMMA president Bertrand Amoussou told L'Express in response to the report.
"I hoped it would not come to this but the CFMMA will launch a legal action to contest this decree."
