    MMA coming to New York!!!!????

    From Bleacher Report MMA page
    MMA: New York Senate Finally Passes the Bill to Legalize MMA, Assembly Next

    Earlier today, the New York Senate passed a unanimous vote of 42-18 in favor of a bill that would legalize MMA in the Empire State. The bill faced serious opposition in the past, and today proved no different on all ends of the spectrum, but the support of 42 senators outweighed the 18 detractors, leading to the bill passing through Senate. The next necessary step is to get the bill passed through the Assembly, where Bob Reilly and other New York State Officials hold a seat, and in the past, that has also been an area of concern.

    However, with how unanimously it passed through the Senate, there's little doubt that it does stand a chance to make it through the assembly.


    Now to see UFC in MSG would be awesome!!!!!
    We all judge others even if it isn't our place to judge, but supposedly at the end we are all judged by one!!!
    Wrestling, women and money who could ask for more???

    I think the boxing associations have been fighting this for years. They do not want MMA pissing in their pool.

    I have too agree, but my buddy, George Groves just won a belt by beating James DeGale on points, in a grudge match straight out of wrestling! George was talking some serious shit about him in the years building up to the fight (he had beaten James in a previous amateur bout) and backed it up on the night. Although, I'm pretty sure his face was a bit sore in the morning... That fight was far from boring!!!

    UFC @ MSG would be a sight to behold, thats for sure. That building has some of the best fans in America!
    Ma$$Dinero... We're shootin' now, bruv!

    Yeah I think the current generation is much more MMA enthustiac over boxing. MMA is much faster paced. Watching 12 rounds of boxing can be brutal and I do not mean in a physical sense.

    Its understandable too. I used to watch boxing when I was young but when MMA was introduced in the form of UFC, I was hooked. Its not just punches....its now kicks and grapples.

    I would try to watch one boxing match again but I would give up if its dragged
