This Week in New York MMA

This week in New York MMA:
  • I wrote this for Cagepotato.
  • Gladius Fights, Ryan Ciotoli's pro/am MMA show on the Seneca Indian Reservation in Upstate New York, is tomorrow night.  The main event will feature Don Carlo-Claus vs. Eddie Fyvie - two dudes who usually have to travel hella far to fight but get to scrap closer to home this time.
  • The rumor mill has that amateur MMA that's supposed to take place at the MMA World Expo at the Javits Center edging closer to reality.  The athletic commission even said to me via email "whatevs, we gots no juice over da amateur stuff" (*said in a Brooklyn accent).
  • Lou Neglia's flagship kickboxing promotion "Combat at the Capitale" is tonight in Chinatown.  Of note is TSMMA rising star Julio Arce, who made his pro MMA debut in Philly a couple months ago.  Kids a killer.
That's all I got for now.
