A week ago, I watched a UFC Fight with Cecil Carr and Andy Durham at J. Bulter’s on New Garden. It was on several of the television sets as was the NASCAR race in Bristol. I was amazed at the number of people actually watching and cheering as this boxing/martial arts fight took place.
Percy Walker, Greensboro’s “billionaire”, reports that North Carolina has lifted the ban on UFC-type fighting.
I doubt that North Carolina could every draw the celebrities seen on the PPV fight last Saturday. To have the really big fights and purses, you need the glitz. Don’t look for the big fights here anytime soon. We’ll probably get the “Best Bouncer” fights we once had before they were outlawed.
