  • privileged statements
  • submission of fingerprints
  • withdrawal of application
  • uniform scale of fees
  • payment of costs of proceedings.


All contestants, promoters, managers, seconds, trainers and ring officials must be licensed by the Commission. No person may participate, directly or indirectly, in any professional contest or exhibition of unarmed combat unless the person has first procured a license from the Commission.


The Commission may deny an application for a license or grant a limited, restricted or conditional license for any cause deemed sufficient by the Commission.


If the Commission does not have sufficient time to review an application for issuance or renewal of a license before the applicant is scheduled to participate in a contest or exhibition of unarmed combat, the Chair of the Commission or the designee of the Chair may, absent any concerns about the qualifications for licensure of the applicant, grant the applicant a temporary license. If an applicant is denied a temporary license by the Chair or the designee of the Chair, the applicant may appeal the denial to the full Commission, which may grant or deny a temporary license to the applicant. After the granting of a temporary license to an applicant pursuant to this subsection, at the next scheduled meeting of the Commission at which the matter can be heard in compliance with the provisions of chapter 241 of NRS, the Commission shall grant, condition or deny the issuance of a license to the applicant for the remainder of the calendar year.


An application for a license constitutes a request for a determination of the applicant’s general suitability, character, integrity, and ability to participate or engage in, or be associated with contests or exhibitions of unarmed combat. The burden of proof is on the applicant to establish to the satisfaction of the Commission that the applicant is qualified to receive a license. By filing an application with the Commission, an applicant accepts the risk of adverse public notice, embarrassment, criticism, financial loss or other action with respect to the application, and expressly waives any claim for damages as a result thereof. Any written or oral statement that is made by any member of the Commission or any witness testifying under oath which is relevant to the application and investigation of the applicant is absolutely privileged and does not impose liability for defamation or constitute a ground for recovery in a civil action.


The Commission may require:


Each ring official and employee of the Commission; and


Any other applicant the Commission wishes to investigate,
Ê to submit to the Commission with the application a complete set of his or her fingerprints which the Commission may forward to the Central Repository for Nevada Records of Criminal History for submission to the Federal Bureau of Investigation for its report.


After an application has been submitted to the Commission, the application may not be withdrawn unless the Commission consents to the withdrawal.


The Commission shall fix a uniform scale of license fees.


In addition to the license fees required by subsection 7, the Commission may require an applicant for a license to:


Pay the costs of the proceedings associated with the issuance of the license, including, without limitation, investigative costs and attorney’s fees; and


Deposit with the Commission such an amount of money as the Commission deems necessary to pay for those costs. If any amount required to be deposited pursuant to this paragraph exceeds the actual cost of the proceedings, including, without limitation, investigative costs and attorney’s fees, the Commission shall refund the excess amount to the applicant upon the completion of the proceedings.
