UFC’s Marc Ratner predicts first New York event early 2011

Vice President of Regulatory Affairs Marc Ratner, recently spoke to the New York Post about the UFC heading to New York City. Ratner states that there is absolutely no reason for MMA not be sanctioned in the “The Big Apple.”

White, speaking via The New York Post, said:

“To me there’s no fathomable reason the sport shouldn’t be regulated in New York. Nobody can give me a real reason for it not to be here. This isn’t 1995 anymore. They do have rules. It’s not no-holds barred anymore. I’m feeling very strongly we’re going to get it done. I’m feeling confident. I want the commission to be completely ready for it. I want their employees ready, the judges trained, as well as the referees and inspectors. There’s no reason for this sport not to be allowed in New York.”
