Event and Bout Approval
(1)All unarmed combat sports bouts shall be approved by the Administrator. Main event contracts, if applicable, shall be placed on file with the Administrator for approval at least 5 days prior to the event unless an exception is made by the Administrator. Contracts, if applicable, for all other unarmed combat sports competitors scheduled on the card shall be filed no later than 72 hours prior to the scheduled weigh-in time for the event unless an exception is made by the Administrator. No promoter may announce or publicize a bout unless both competitors have executed a contract, if applicable, with the promoter for the bout, and the Administrator has approved the bout.
(2)The grounds for denial of a promoter’s request to hold an unarmed combat sports event are as follows:
(a)The failure of the promoter to submit a complete event application as provided by the superintendent.
(b)The failure of the promoter or any person connected with the promotion and under the jurisdiction of the superintendent to comply with any statute or rule regulating unarmed combat sports in Oregon;
(c)The bout would be a mismatch based on the record, experience, skill and condition of the competitors and would expose one or both competitors to serious injury;
(d)The Administrator does not have adequate staff to enforce the statutes and rules regulating unarmed combat sports enacted and adopted to protect the health, safety and welfare of the competitors and public and guarantee the collection of revenue due to the state from the event and all ancillary rights incidental thereto;
(e)The date requested by the promoter is unavailable.
