    I would guess "MMA is legal in France! Practicing MMA is being sanctioned by French Boxing Federation. Good news",

    or something along those lines.

    Tom Duqusenoy ? Yeah I was pretty sad when he announced his premature retirement, he was very promising.

    I imagine it will take a few events to iron out some issues. Good news regardless.

    I'm surprised it's taken this long given how France has hosted so many combat sports events for decades. I assume any UFC event will be held at the Palais des Omnisports or whatever it's called now.

    Paris needs all the revenue it can get.

    What a shithole it turned into.
