While us New York MMA fans have been languishing in a world without sanctioned fighting, Take-On has been cranking out Muay Thai events - at a neat little venue out in Flushing, at the Beacon Theater in Manhattan, and even at Bally's Casino in Atlantic City. And now the standup fighting organization will be cracking the Madison Square Garden nut before anyone else. Friday, March 16, is the date, and Take-On will be bringing something like seventeen bouts to the WAMU Theater (which is inside MSG - it's where Cirque du Soleil usually performs), including a fight between Philly trainer Rigel Balsamico and UFC vet Ryan Madigan. Hooray for Muay Thai! Also, color me jealous. I want my MMA at MSG. Damn you, New York State.
