If lawmakers are looking for an extra reason to finally get this done, UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta recently said the organization wouldn't put on an ordinary event when they're finally allowed to make their Madison Square Garden debut.

"When we come [to New York]," he said, "we're going to blow it out. We're going to put on a ridiculous UFC 100-style card, stacked, big, open to the public weigh-ins, press conferences, after-parties, the whole deal. Everybody will be there. This is going to be an event that will remind you of 1971 when Ali fought Frazier for the first time and every celebrity in New York had to be there.

"The biggest problem that I'm going to have is going to be where to sit everybody and who gets seats and who doesn't. It's going to be crazy."

Think the UFC boss is anxious to finally put on an event in New York or what?

This is the chance to blackmail Lorenzo into the most epic match-ups ever.

Silva/Jones,GSP/Diaz/Pettis Bendo 2/Hendo Shogun 2...make it happen nyc legislators,one's in a live time opportunity...

Fuck just woke up to the harsh reality that Silva will probably be retired when this NYC cards gets put together.

<blockquote>SlyStallowned - ^ What a novel argument! Boxing has 'died' dozens of times since the 1800's....do you have anything original to add or will you just continue to parrot a line you've heard others say?<br /><br />Saying that, however, doesn't disprove what I said though. If the UFC event in NYC is as big a deal for celebrities as Ali/Frazier was (as Lorenzo would apparently want us to believe it will be), there is no reason that all the top stars of today shouldn't be there as they were for that fight. Fact of the matter is though that there isn't a fight in MMA that could be made that would draw the attention of the world like that fight did. A UFC event in NYC will be no different than one in Vegas or LA.</blockquote><br /><br />No different from Vegas or LA? Are you nuts? Couldn't disagree more. I live in NY and when this city gets behind a sporting event/team it is wild! You're forgetting how big NYC is not even including the tri-state area outside the city (vicinity of millions in NY, NJ and CT who live just outside NYC). <br />But here's the most important thing that will differentiate it from every other UFC event-NYC is the media capital of the world!!!! And it's not even close!!! That event will be absolutely electric! Can't wait!!!!<br />

RyannVonDoom - 
ssj - Why isn't every card UFC 100-stacked?

It's not like they don't have the roster ..



Because they dont want to.. they want to water the cards down to get the most money out of us.

Jeez, crybaby.

>one's in a live time opportunity

 While I can't wait to see GSP smash Diaz for 5 rounds of takedown and domination I don't think that fight ever happens.
