(NECN) -Saturday night, Mixed Martial Arts will be in the Boston spot light, as UFC Fight Night takes over the TD Garden.
But the popular sport is not without controversy.
A city counselor is trying to ban children from going to the events because he says they're too violent.
The president of the UFC doesn't agree.
Stephen J. Murphy, counselor-at-large, joined NECN with his side of the argument.
He said that the stars of the UFC are not sanctioned and can be seen on YouTube videos “promoting violence against women and teaching kids how to rape.”
He commented on Dana White’s comments on how unsuitable behavior can be found at other sports events, like Patriots games.
Murphy said that the Patriots jettisoned Aaron Hernandez right after he was arrested, but that the UFC does nothing to fighters that promote violent behavior online.
