    isn't it ironic that jon jones and chris Weidman were both born and raised in new York but they will not pass this legislation?

    It will pass eventually. And when it does, hopefully that can fight in the same card in Madison Square Garden, and possibly cause an explosion.

    Do you guys think an ufc event in ny would push the organisation to a next level in terms of popularity? I am not an us citizen, and i allways wonder what the big deal about mma prohobited in ny is all about..why do they want to make it haooen so badly? Is it the pr boost?

    There should be laws against corrupt politicians, especially the ones who f w/UFC expansion & UFC officiating and judging.

    Winner.


    The word "ironic" is perhaps the most misused word in the English language.


    Another smug observation: New York state has nearly 20 million residents. It's not weird at all that 2 of the champs are from the third most populous state.


    Greasing a few more palms will take care of this issue soon enough.

    I don't see irony. Only a shitty situation that will most likely not get resolved any time soon

    $$$

    PR would be good. Holding an event in NY would be a gimme sold out crowd. NYC has a large immigrant, and foreign visitor population.
