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!!!!!
