Outdoor MMA show must “cease and desist” - VT Digger

The promoter of an outdoor June 20 Mixed Martial Arts show has been given a ‘cease and desist’ order by the State of Vermont because his show violates the ban on close-contact sports.

"RUTLAND — A night of mixed martial arts fighting in Rutland was canceled by its organizer on Monday after state officials had sent a cease-and-desist order. Randy Felion, the owner of Fight Night Promotions, had planned to hold the event June 20, but officials said it violated the state’s prohibition on close-contact sporting events, which are banned to prevent the spread of Covid-19. In a letter sent Friday, the offices of the Attorney General and Secretary of State said legal action would be pursued against Felion if he did not immediately comply. Late Monday, the Attorney General’s Office reported “it is our understanding the event has now been cancelled.”."
