Gov. Andrew Cuomo Signed Legislation Making MMA Officially Legal In New York
Gov. Andrew Cuomo officially signed legislation today at Madison Square Garden making MMA legal in New York!!! Shortly after CEO of the UFC Lorenzo Fertitta stated they are hosting an event on Nov. 12th. No other details were released regarding the card.
Now that I got the facts out of the way, let me start by saying: IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME!!! MMA has been banned there since 1997 and it took way longer than a New York minute to get that reversed. To show my excitement I may go out tonight and do things New Yorkers do. I will drink a hundred Manhattans, listen to a little Jay-Z and stink at baseball. Boom, Yankee’s suck joke right in your face!!!
