New Jersey Fun Facts: 2009 Edition

Did you know…?

    • There were 45 sanctioned MMA events in New Jersey in 2009.
    • Of these events, there were 125 professional MMA bouts.
    • There were also 346 amateur MMA bouts.
    • Referee Dan Miragliotta used 671 bottles of tanning lotion.
    • A total of 13 people died eating spoiled food from the staff cafeteria within the Tropicana Casino & Resort in Atlantic City (which hosts the Ring of Combat events).  No one complained, however, because it was free.
    • The UFC held zero events within the Garden State, which is the same number they held there in 2008.
    • Asylum Fight League promoter Carl Mascarenhas killed a man just because he thought the man looked at him funny.
    • No manatees were harmed at any sanctioned MMA events over the course of the year – which is a new safety record for the State of New Jersey!
