Mr. Douglas was appointed last week to oversee the administrative offices of the regulatory body following the departure of Executive Officer
Mr. Garcia will technically remain the Executive Officer until his contract with the CSAC expires on Dec. 31, though the commission does not expect him to serve in any capacity for the remainder of his term.
"I'm honored to be selected for this position," Douglas told MMAWeekly.com via email. "There is a lot of work to do and I'll let my actions speak for me."
Mr. Douglas said he had not considered whether he would apply for the open position of Executive Officer.
"It's too soon to think about it at this time as there is much to do," he continued.
