Official Statement From the RACJ About UFC 97

Special Thanks to the Ultime Fanatic for keeping us current on the latest developments. Here is a version I translated from French to English:

Quebec, February 18, 2009 - The "RACJ" met with representatives from the UFC, the mixed martial arts company behind an event scheduled for April 18th at the Bell Center, in order to receive additional explanations with regard to their request for licensing the event.

During the meeting, the "RACJ" received assurances from the promotion that the securityé of the participants will be assured, and that the rules for combat sports will be respected for this event. As a result, the "RACJ" has granted a mixed boxing license as requested by the UFC, that will allow UFC 97 event to proceed on April 18th.

Here is the official release in french:

Québec, le 18 février 2009 – La Régie des alcools, des courses et des jeux a rencontré des représentants de Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), promoteur du gala de boxe mixte prévu le 18 avril prochain au Centre Bell, afin d’obtenir des explications additionnelles eu égard à sa demande de licence pour la tenue de ce gala.

Au cours de cette rencontre, la Régie a reçu l’assurance du promoteur que la sécurité des participants sera assurée et que le Règlement sur les sports de combat sera respecté lors de ce gala. Par conséquent, la Régie a délivré la licence de boxe mixte demandée par UFC, permettant ainsi la tenue du gala UFC 97 du 18 avril prochain.
