The Nevada State Athletic Commission voted to suspend boxing, MMA, and other combat sports events until March 25. Nevada suspends combat sports events after the conclusion of an emergency meeting to address the COVID-19 outbreak.
The NSAC scheduled their next meeting on March 25. The commissioners will vote on that day on whether they will allow combat sports or continue with the suspension. They named NSAC executive director Bob Bennett as the lead person in recommending how they will move forward after the next meeting.
Bennett told PPH bookie reporters that he is continuously communicating with medical professionals. Also, he knows all the amateur and professional sports events suspended for an indefinite period. He will continue to collect data to provide more information about the virus at their next meeting.
As a result of the suspension, Tuff-N-Uff was canceled. There were no major professional MMA or boxing events scheduled for the weekend in Vegas. However, there are three events scheduled three days after the next NSAC meeting, according to sportsbook PPH sources.
Not many American sports fans understand how the Rugby tournament works, so we’ll start with a brief 2015 Rugby World Cup overview in terms of the points earned for winning (and bonus points).
Like a soccer tournament, there are pools of teams that will each play each other, with the top two teams after the group stage advancing to the Quarterfinals. In soccer, you earn three points for a win, one points for a draw, and zero points for a loss.
In rugby, however, a win earns four points, a draw earns two, and a loss earns zero. There are also bonus points that can be earned for both the winning and losing teams.
