"We're so close," White recently told the MMA Fight Corner show on FOX Sports Radio. "It's going to happen, and I guarantee you it's going to happen this year."

White, who has usually shied away from making such strong proclamations when it comes to New York, felt so good about his prediction, he repeated it, this time a little more emphatically.

"I guarantee you it's going to happen this year," White said.

The UFC filed a lawsuit in November to overturn The Ban in NY. Where does that stand right now?

This bill can be passed by the New York Senate and through the Assembly's Tourism, Parks, Arts and Sports Development committee a billion times and it still won't make a difference.

It really comes down to The New York State Assembly - specifically Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver. As long as he is there I can't imagine this bill being passed.

with that "guarantee" it sounds like White and some Friends of the Family are going to make some people an Offer that they can't Refuse

Combination of the right politicians needing greasing, Culinary Union influence, and the old Jewish Boxing regime who are trying to hold onto the last fibers of their sport with everything they have left.

Direct quote from Sheldon Silver just before he killed the MMA bill in New York in 2011:

"There does not appear to be widespread support in the Assembly for this legislation," Silver said when asked if the proposal would be approved before the June 20 end of the legislative session.

I hope it doesn't happen.

Just because Dana needs to know he can't always get what he wants or make everything happen.

He is too much like Vince McMahon in this respect and so far has yet to temper some ill behavior because he hasn't had to.

Why is NY so important?

I like it now so that other cities get a crack at big events.

It will suck when ONLY Vegas and MSG host the big fights.

Means every other city gets main events like Ellenberger versus Shields or Story versus Brenneman.

I get that NY is number 1 market.

Los Angeles is number 2 and the NFL is fine without it.

MMA hasn't had NY yet and the sport clearly was at it's zenith around UFC 100.

NY is used to getting everything they want. So is Dana White.

I guess it's nice sometimes when both New York city and Dana White hear the word the rest of us and every other city hears year round; "No". Phone Post

Most MMA fans won't be able to afford the ticket prices for UFC at MSG anyway.

Legalizing it will help all of the smaller promotions.

it sucks having to go to Vermont, Mass or Jersey to fight.

Thatsjustlikeyouropinionman, 2-7 Sn - I can't wait. I'm sure thy will have a fight night type event in Albany. Phone Post


There was an article in the Albany Times Union like 2 years ago about a proposed plan.

They wanted to do a UFN or TUF Finale at HSBC in Buffalo, Times Union Center in Albany first, then a big PPV card at MSG.

Knowing how it is now, they will probably just go straight for MSG.

bigger market,bigger spotlight and more money for the fighters.

I challenged DFW on twitter to not shave until MMA is in NY. You all should get on and push him to accept!
