Alberta Reinstates UFC Betting Ban

Canadian Province, Alberta has reinstated the ban on betting on the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

The regulator of sports betting in Alberta has reversed the week-old ban on betting on the Ultimate Fighting Championship. The Province’s Gaming, Liquor, and Cannabis Commission confirmed that the ban has been reversed on Dec. 9.

The ban was announced on Dec. 2 when UFC announced that the fighters coached by James Krause will be prohibited from participating in its mixed martial arts events pending the outcome of a Nevada State Athletic Commission Investigation.

Nevada regulators said that Krause and his managers were investigated and his license suspended, following a suspicious betting on a fight in November. This led the Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis commission to suspend betting on the UFC events on its Play Alberta sportsbook.

The decision has now been reversed and betting has been reinstated in the Province. The Agency said in Covers reports “Protecting consumers in Alberta is of the utmost importance to AGLC. We will remain vigilant in monitoring the situation and ensure players continue to have safe and secure gaming opportunities on Play Alberta.”
