MMA SANCTION IN NEW YORK UNDERWAY
UFC representatives are fighting to get MMA sanction at New York. Representatives of UFC visited Madison Square Garden on Thursday in their latest attempt to get the sport sanctioned in New York.
UFC president Dana White and Chairman/CEO Lorenzo Fertitta have been to New York the past few years, fighting to get their sport regulated. Each time they have been unsuccessful. But White and Fertitta are as confident they will find success this year. They are focusing on better educating politicians and general public of the economic benefits of sanctioning MMA.
