How New York's MMA Bills Are Going to Kill Amateur MMA

NEW YORK


Things are about to change in New York, and they're going to change in a big way. No, I'm not talking about the fact that the ban on professional MMA bouts will finally be lifted after 18 years of legislative smackdown - although that is surely happening and it's a huge deal in its own right. What I'm referring to is the MMA bill that just passed through the Senate and the concurrent piece of legislation that will likely soon get the stamp of approval from the Assembly. Those bills - designated S02159 and A02604 - contain some pretty tight verbiage that will stamp out all amateur MMA in the state.

NEW YORK

But mixed in there was something else, something special. When I went to the NYFE's website, I saw the future.

A Few BX Fight Club Videos for Your Enjoyment

NEW YORK


Yes, I obviously went to an underground fight show last Sunday. No, I am not done writing the article on it - it takes time to make the words pretty. But in the meantime, here are some videos from the event. In terms of atmosphere, BX Fight Club is one of the best shows I've ever been to, and you can get a glimpse of that here.

Events are every Sunday, so if you're interested... well, the first rule is I'm not supposed to talk about it.
