UFC President Dana White spoke with Kenny Rice from Inside MMA and revealed that he is saving a date for a UFC event for late 2015. The event will be held in the world famous Arena Madison Square Garden in New York City.
In the interview Dana White says;
“You’ve heard me say this many times and im gonna say it again im very confident that it might happen this year. Im actually really confident this year.”
Mixed Martial Arts is still not legalised in New York State and on numerous occasions Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta have stated that this is due to a grudge held by the Las Vegas Culinary Union at the Fertitta Brothers.
The bill to legalise MMA has passed the senate on a many occasions but always manages to get held up in the the assembly. This is one of the reasons why Dana White is more confident as the Assembly speaker Sheldon Silver is on federal charges of corruption.
