[Cage Fighting] The Weber County Commission today decided no more cage fighting at the Weber County Fair.
Pshaw. Some wise staff member should have handed the Commish a copy of the Nov. 29 2007 City Weekly, whose cover story illustrated how cage fighting, sometimes called mixed martial arts fighting, has blasted into Utah. Also, that it's a favorite pastime for a lot of frustrated Mormon men, who lock up their machismo all week and let it burst forth at the MMA fights on the weekends.
The county fair used to be about pronto pups, cotton candy and bashing people's heads behind chain link. What happened? (Holly Mullen)
