The New York State Senate is expected to vote on - and pass - their half of the MMA bill today. Sadly, the Assembly continues to refuse to address the issue, and the clock on this legislative session is ticking in regards to their half of the bill.
That's the bad news. The good news re: New York is that Friday Night Fights - Justin Blair's long-running Manhattan-based kickboxing show - will be hosting an event on June 10th and two UFC veterans will be making their kickboxing debut. The Octagon alumni are Phillipe Nover and Brodie Farber. No, they won't be fighting each other, but they will be stepping into the ring and resisting to urge to take people down. The website for Friday Night Fights is www.fridaynightfights.com (crazy, huh?), so go there for more info.
