“I really want to make this a priority during my visit to New York. It’s pretty much ridiculous that MMA is not regulated here. I’d be surprised if the bill wouldn’t pass this year,” said Rousey, who will fight next at UFC 190 against Bethe Correia on August 1st. “I have a huge sense of optimism this year.”

“I think Madison Square Garden is such an iconic thing. I always wanted to have that opportunity. Your shelf life is short. I’d hate to see the bill pass after I’ve already retired.”

In a new interview with the New York Daily News, UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey touched on the state of MMA in New York.

Ronda in the MSG anyone?
