UFC to get into New York the old fashioned way: bribing politicians


The Ultimate Fighting Championship has been trying for years to be licensed in the state of New York. They have tried repeatedly to get the New York State Assembly to legalize MMA fighting in general and the UFC in particular. The UFC has been met by failure after failure in these attempts.

Now UFC president Dana White is more hopeful than ever about getting his sport approved in New York. The reason? Zuffa, UFC’s parent company, donated $75,000 to New York governor Andrew Cuomo’s election campaign.

White recently whined to the Chicago Sun-Times that, “We’ve gone into other countries faster than we’ve gotten to New York.” The UFC has held events in Canada, Australia, Great Britain, Ireland and Dubai.
