If you're curious what will be required of pro MMA promoters, simply go to that particular row and read across. Ditto for kickboxing promoters, regular martial arts event promoters, fighters... the list goes on.
It's worth noting that the table only provides info as laid out in the MMA Bill; the Athletic Commission will surely add to it. For example, the bill doesn't require referees to get physicals before events, but it's pretty standard for them to be required in other jurisdictions, so that's something that will likely be added.
Another thing worth noting is that, though amateur MMA, kickboxing and martial arts promoters don't appear to have any requirements to meet under the new law, it's safe to assume they'll have strict requirements under the third-party sanctioning organizations the Athletic Commission approves to oversee them.
