Dana White

Earlier this week news broke that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo had officially signed the bill legalizing MMA in New York.

The UFC promptly announced its inaugural event in New York at the Madison Square Garden on November 12th, which was later revealed to be UFC 205.

As if a show at the Madison Square Garden isn’t enough, now the UFC is eyeing an event at Yankee Stadium according to UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta.

He spoke to Newsday:

“There’s a bunch of other venues we want to go to,” said Fertitta. “We want to go to Barclays, we’ve had discussions with Yankee Stadium to do something next summer there.”
