Click for VicThe UFC has launched a new social media campaign aimed at engaging Australian’s to “Click for Vic” in its efforts to change the current state of MMA legislation in the state of Victoria, Australia.

Currently MMA in a cage is banned in the Australian state, but the “Click for Vic” Facebook and Twitter accounts are aimed at gathering public support to help bring a global UFC event and further MMA grassroots development to the area.

Victoria and Western Australia are the only two states in Australia where professional MMA competitions must take place in a boxing ring rather than a cage.

“This year alone, the UFC will hold more than 30 events around the world and close to 400 individual competitions, all held in a safe, fenced-in enclosure,” said Tom Wright, UFC Director of Operations for Australia, New Zealand and Canada. “Our first priority is the safety of our athletes and what we won’t do – and never will – is hold an event in a boxing ring”

“We’ve held successful events around the globe, including four in New South Wales and Queensland,” he continued. “Victoria and Western Australia are just as anxious and deserving markets – we want to bring the UFC to them.”

Fans can show their support and are urged to like and share us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/clickforvic, or follow on Twitter at @ClickforVic and use the hashtag #ClickforVic in conversations.

    I understand non fans thinking its more barbaric to fight in a cage rather than a ring. But from a safety standpoint how many times has a competitor fallen out of a ring in a boxing or Mma match? And how many have fallen out of a cage? Simple put a cage is much safer
