The Illinois General Assembly passed a legislation Wednesday to legalize and regulate mixed martial arts in Illinois, reports the Chicago Tribune.

To finalize the measure, Governor Rod Blagojevich will need to the sign the bill into law.

Expect the UFC to promote an event in Chicago as soon as MMA is officially regulated in Illinois, which appears to be early 2008.

Local MMA events are currently being held in Illinois via state-approved waivers.

This is awesome to hear. This is just one more step for all of MMA to becoming legal throughout all of America and Canada. Those that are still in the old days of the "Human Cockfighting" have nothing to stand behind and that is the only responce that they can put up to keep the sport down and everyone knows that it is crap. Within 3 years MMA is going to be all over North America.

This is great news ! I live in Detroit and although we have some MMA events, the UFC has not held anything in Detroit. Looks like that may not be too far from the works now that surrounding states are jumping aboard
