The UFC wants to run that venue if the state of New York will pass that MMA is legal in that state.
“We have a date,” White said. “Obviously, it’d be a bad-[expletive] card,” White said. “We come to New York, we’re going to blow it out of the water.”
“You know we’re going to have a lot of New Yorkers fighting on the New York card,” White said. “We do that in every market we go in. Plus, the first ever at the Garden, I mean, some of these guys’ dreams are to fight at the Garden.”
Some believe that this will finally be the year that MMA is passed by the state commission and some believe that it won’t. Time will tell I suppose.
