Joe, MC cable is considered cable.
It must be supported and secured at intervals not over 6', and if 4 or fewer conductors #10 or smaller, must be secured within a foot of any fitting or termination.
Exceptions are where it's fished, or fixture whips up to 6' long.

See Article 330--especially 330.30
