Liveblog: Strikeforce NYC Presser Part 1
MMA Journalist is here at the Strikeforce presser at Madison Square Garden. Maybe a little over 100 fans have turned out, with industry luminaries The Garv, Matt the Fight Nerd, Eddie Goldman and John Moody adding credence to the festivities. NYSAC Chairwoman Melvina Lathan is here. I asked her about MMA getting legalized here and she says she's more optimistic than ever. In terms of refreshments, there's cans of soda, coffee and tea. It's not the opulant spread of an Affliction presser, so maybe that means Strikeforce has a future.
