    What a shock. As if it wasn't obvious why mma is banned in NY in the first place.

    It's actually a shock Dana was telling the truth for once. But there you have it.

    That's awesome. Dude is a union shill. If we finally shakes this rat off, MMA might finally be legalized here.

    I have a feeling that his jail will be more like a country club.

    His jail will be his own home at worst. There's no way he's getting anything more than house arrest.

    Jones vs Gus 2

    I dont think Silva will get to face Weidman for a third time. But seeing how greedy the UFC can be it wouldnt shock me. I just fear for Andersons life if that fight happens. I really do. Anderson is 40 years old, has been knocked out twice by Weidman, lost every second of every round, its just a clear mismatch at this point

    LOL the political class doesn't allow fellow corrupt politicians to get hammered. Guy gets a $100k fine which will be paid by lobbyists and 1 year in minimum security, prostitutes and marijuana on the weekends jail.

    I didn't even think of Jones/Gus. But supposedly if Anderson makes it past Diaz, Weidman is next for him.

    This is awesome. Who knew NY politics was corrupt? Oh well, with this guy gone, I'm sure the state will be clean from here on out.

    Dana and Joe Rogan have said for years that MMA lobbying is dirty as hell. What they need to do to legalize it state by state must have been ugly.

    You must not be familiar with the American legal system. He's a rich old white guy with connections. I'm surprised he was charged in the first place.
