Unified MMA 16 – Weigh-In Results – Bill S-209 Forces Cancellation of Amateur Bouts
Mirage Banquet Hall will be rocking again tomorrow night with yet another sold out show. The main event features Mike Davis making the first defence of his Unified Flyweight Title against fast rising Michael Banin. In the co-main event will be a long awaited bout between Chase Maxwell and Jordan McKay. There will be no tickets available at the door so as always Top MMA News will have all your live coverage.
As of press time, the amateurs had not weighed in and ECSC Executive Director Pat Reid was not present for comment. Edmonton official Andy Social, who appeared to be running the weigh-ins, informed Top MMA News that due to the passing of bill S-209 which made amateur MMA illegal the ECSC would have no involvement in the amateur portion of the card but that the fights could go on as exhibition contests.
UPDATE: The amateur/exhibition fights have been cancelled.
CLARIFICATION: Andy Social was incorrectly listed as a member of the Edmonton Commission. Andy Social is not a member of the commission but is an Edmonton official. Andy Social does not speak for the Edmonton Combative Sports Commission.
