MMA Still Banned In NYC

For the eighth year in a row the bill to legalize MMA won’t be voted on in the New York State Assembly after passing by a landslide in the Senate, according to sources.

UFC president Dana White made his feelings on the matter very clear on Twitter.

The corruption in NY politics is DISGUSTING!!!!

The UFC had a date set at Madison Square Garden for Dec. 5. With a probable main event of Chris Weidman defending his middleweight title against Luke Rockhold. Now that NYC is out of the picture the event will likely take place in Toronto or Calgary although when is unknown.

Tthe MMA bill was changed last week to add more boxing regulation and better rules for amateur MMA to the table but it didn’t help as some thought it would.

The UFC will have to live again by the motto that many New York sports teams do: Wait until next year.
