If you know the UFC and how things work, you know who Keith Kizer is. Keith Kizer is the head of the Nevada State Athletic Commission, overseeing licensing of Boxing, Kickboxing, Muay Thai, MMA and a whole lot more in the state of Nevada. According to reports today, Keith Kizer has resigned from his role at NSAC effective immediately and will be assuming a role with the Attorney General’s Office beginning on January 27th.
There has been no one named as the successor for controlling the NSAC just yet, but there are already lots of questions hanging in the air as to what the next step will be for the athletic commission in the UFC’s home base of Nevada.
Just received email, Keith Kizer is leaving his role as NSAC executive director for Attorney’s General Office effective Jan. 27.
