Boston city councilor Stephen Murphy is trying to put an end to kids watching ultimate fighting events in Boston.

"I think it's violent and the behavior is over the top and it promotes violence against women. This is about protecting children from stuff that is over the top," says Murphy.

UFC president Dana White obviously disagrees.

"You realize that the Patriots play here? What just happened in football right? Have you ever been to a Yankees Red Sox game? Have you ever heard things that are yelled and said around little kids?" says White.
