Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver yesterday appeared to KO the latest bid to legalize ultimate fighting in New York, despite its mounting momentum in the state Capitol.

The bill to legalize and regulate the popular but controversial sport overwhelmingly cleared the Assembly Tourism Committee this week. It already passed the Senate.
