According to a report Friday night on, it was announced on Friday night that Keith Kizer will be leaving his position as the executive director of the Nevada State Athletic Commission effective immediately. Apparently, he will be taking a position with the Attorney General's office.

The UFC has made their home base in Las Vegas for the past decade. Every year they hold more events in the city and under the jurisdiction of the NSAC than any other place. Dana White, UFC president, has been highly critical of Kizer many times over the years for some of his decisions as they related to perceived bad judging or refereeing.

Many in the boxing community have also had issues with Kizer and his never ending defense of boxing judges who have made some highly questionable decisions as of late.

Brett Okamoto of announced on Twitter that executive director of the NSAC will be stepping down from his post:

Just received email, Keith Kizer is leaving his role as NSAC executive director for Attorney's General Office effective Jan. 27.

Kizer will continue with his duties as executive director until officially leaving his post on January 27. There has been no replacement named yet, but the search will begin immediately.

The UFC will make its next appearance in Nevada on February 22 for UFC 170.
