Columbia University Symposium on MMA in New York Tomorrow Night


We're forging into the great unknown with the new Combative Sports Law lifting the ban on pro MMA and the New York State Athletic Commission in upheaval. What does the future hold? Sure, the UFC and the World Series of Fighting are coming to the Big Apple, but what about the regional-level promotions? And what of the multitude of amateur shows?

These questions - plus plenty more - will be tackled tomorrow night at a symposium at Columbia University. The details are here, but the gist of it is that I'm moderating this discussion, and the panel includes the UFC's hired lobbying gun David Weinraub, former NYSAC executive director David Berlin, and a bunch of other people with keen insight on MMA in New York.

Come on by. Don't be shy.
