Once again, MMA fails in New York. The bill to get that sport legalized in the Big Apple did not get passed yesterday and needless to say, UFC officials weren’t very happy.
Especially UFC president Dana White who took to Twitter to call out the ‘corrupt’ politicians. There was a lot of positive vibes floating around, and it seemed like this could be the year, but like most things in politics, it was just a big let down.
The corruption in NY politics is DISGUSTING!!!!

W/Sheldon Silver gone, we're missing a piece to the MMANY ban. IMO it may not be the sport itself that the senators don't want. #Point2Prove
