Is anyone aware of any cities in Iowa that regulate cage fighting (or
ultimate fighting, mixed martial arts, etc.) through their zoning ordinance?
Believe it or not, but there is a cage fighting event scheduled for the
Legion building here in Pella this weekend, and our City Attorney opinion is
that we have nothing in current code to specifically regulate such. The one
ordinance I have seen from Marion prohibits alcohol at such events, but this
is not under their zoning ordinance.
