CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A bill aimed at bringing an Ultimate Fighting Championship event to Wyoming is gaining support at the state Capitol.

House Bill 87 would create a board and set rules for the mixed martial arts fighting events. It has passed the House and got the unanimous backing of a Senate committee on Tuesday.

Wyoming is one of five states that doesn’t have a mixed martial arts board or commission.

It would cost $10,000 to start the board but bill sponsor Rep. Bryan Pedersen of Cheyenne said it would be self-funded once it was established.

Pedersen says that the results of Wyoming fights aren’t recognized by other states, forcing professional fighters to travel to other states to compete.

The bill now heads to the full Senate for consideration.
