A legislative rules committee voted to suspend Gov. Rod Blagojevich's emergency ban on the brawl.
The governor announced the ban last month after at least 12 deaths were attributed to the fight. None of those deaths were in Illinois.
Toughman will take place next Friday and Saturday nights at the Metro Center.
This will be the 23rd Annual Toughman Competition in Rockford. Tickets are still available at the Metro Center box office.
