UFC’s Marc Ratner To Be Honored By International Boxing Hall Of Fame

Marc Ratner, the UFC‘s vice president of regulatory affairs, will be inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame this coming weekend.

Ratner was one of five new members selected for induction.

“In Halls of Fame, mostly it’s the fighters and the trainers, and regulators aren’t the ones they would honor,” Ratner said. “So I’m very pleased with that. Judges, referees, I just don’t know how many commission people they have on there, so I’m honored in that regard.”

Ratner, who was executive director of the Nevada Athletic Commission for several years, joined the UFC in 2006.

“It’s been a fabulous, fabulous move,” Ratner said. “We all want something legacy-wise when we write our stories in life, and this is really still a brand-new sport. To be on the ground floor of a new sport, that’s what really pushed me over.”
