PostSubject: New York State Passes Bill to Legalize Mixed Martial Arts    Wed Mar 23, 2016 11:49 am

The state of New York has finally passed a bill to legalize the sport of Mixed Martial Arts.

The bill passed today 113-25, and will now move on to Governor Andrew Cuomo to be signed. The New York State Athletic Commission has 4 months to setup guidelines for MMA in the state, and both Bellator and UFC issued the following statements in response to the bill passing:

Bellator:

“We at Bellator MMA are very much looking forward to hosting an event in the ‘Crown Jewel of America,’ New York. Two Bellator champions, Liam McGeary and Marcos Galvao call New York home and I know it means a great deal to the both of them, as it does for the entire promotion. We’ve already been in contact with the great people at the Barclays Center and several other incredible venues, and we can’t wait bring our world-class athletes and action-packed shows to an arena in the Empire State soon.”

UFC:

“While there are still additional steps that have to occur before professional MMA becomes a reality in New York, I want to assure our fans that if Governor Cuomo signs the bill into law and the State Athletic Commission puts in place the appropriate regulations, we look forward to hosting our first New York event in the world’s most famous arena – Madison Square Garden, home to so many epic sporting events throughout the decades. We also look forward to scheduling events in Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Utica, Albany, and Brooklyn. We are excited.”
