Yesterday we reached an amazing milestone with the petition calling for The UFC to enact a code of conduct! The 500th person signed on to join this campaign (thanks Nick!) to get The UFC to join the big leagues with other major sports organizations and create a clear rule book that outlines what is unacceptable behavior from fighters (and staff)! Hint: hate speech and rape tweets should be banned!
Haven’t signed yet? Why not take a sec and do it right now! (I’ll wait.)
But maybe signing a petition just isn’t hands-on enough for you. Good news! There’s a chance for you — yes you — to get your voice heard on this issue Wednesday, Feb. 22! The Nevada Athletic Commission is holding a special workshop to address concerns and take public comment about mixed martial arts. I encourage EVERYONE who cares about this issue to get thee to this meeting, which starts at 9 am! Here’s a link with all the details.
In the meantime, I would also ask that we all write Letters to the Editor to share our message! (I’ll be posting mine here in a few days.)
And, if you’ve missed any past updates or want more info on this campaign and all the amazing organizations and individuals involved, just click here.
