24dash.com reports that London Assembly member Bob Blackman (of Wembley, the area which will be hosting Cage Rage this weekend at the Wembley Arena) is attempting to stop “cage fighting” (MMA).

“The ‘sport’ of Cage Fighting offers no protection to its participants and it excites the worst sides of human emotion in those who watch it.

“This medieval human blood sport has no place in modern Britain.”

Here’s Bob Blackman’s contact information. His publicly listed e-mail is bob.blackman@btinternet.com if you want to contact him, but please – no threats.

Update: Both the BBC and Headway (a brain injury charity) are pushing the story. Here is fan reaction on the UKFF forum.
