On The Record

This is something that we have under review. It should be, at the very least, strictly regulated. I find some of the scenes in it quite disturbing. I think the rules should ensure that there is an absolute absence of brutality or savagery or anything like it. We are reviewing this, to find the best way of regulating it to ensure it is as safe as any other sport.

Minister for Sport Shane Ross has vowed to tackle and regulate mixed martial arts in Ireland.

The Fixture List

  • In their rescheduled Champions Cup fixture, Munster take on Racing 92 in Paris tomorrow at 3.45pm Irish time.
  • There’s also Irish interest in the Guinness Pro12 as Connacht face the Ospreys in Swansea at 1.30pm.
