Hartford expects to welcome MMA & Boxing

June 19, 2017

Hartford could soon get an economic boost from big, popular events like Mixed Martial Arts and boxing. It’s great news for the City and the XL Center thanks to a new law that does away with some costly insurance and taxation restrictions -- clearing a path for promoters of MMA and boxing to begin booking in the Capitol City and other venues in Connecticut. These events will bring thousands of fans to the city and employ city residents with good-paying jobs.
