Ultimate Fighting (aka ‘mixed martial arts’ and ‘cage fighting’) comes to Northfield on Friday night. It arrives just in time to beat the legislation that goes into effect on Sunday. See this Strib article, Legislature gives Boxing Commission ultimate authority, and this recent column by the Strib’s Katherine Kersten: The Ultimate Fighter: Is there more to manhood?
The event isn’t listed in the June issue of the NEG or mentioned by Christine Bernier in her post to the Northfield.org blog about weekend events. Could the NEG be legitimately accused of practicing a form of cultural snobbery?
