MMA Legalization Passes In New York Senate

The New York Senate passed S.2755 to help bring legalization which allows the Athletic Commission to add MMA to the list of permitted combat sports.

The bill passed easily with a 47-14 vote. The bill must still pass the Assembly, which is where it has died in the past.

UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta has been confident that 2013 will be the year MMA becomes legal in NY.
