VIDEO | Lorenzo Fertitta & ZUFFA employees celebrate legalization of MMA in New York

Early Tuesday afternoon a bill was passed that moved MMA one step closer to being legalized in New York. The bill now moves to the desk of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who has agreed to sign it.

The bill passing is a win for the ZUFFA, who has been unable to hold an MMA event in New York.
