UFC News: Things not looking good for MMA in NYC

With time running out, things are not looking good for the MMA bill passing in New York as speaker of the house Joe Morelle said today that it's looking less likely for the bill to be passed this year.

Mark LaMonica of Newsday tweeted that Morelle said there aren't enough voters in town. The Democrats wanted 76 yes votes in the Assembly to call for the bill to get a vote. The belief this past week was that they had that number, but there's simply not enough people in town to make it happen.

UFC President Dana White tweeted today: "The corruption in New York politics is disgusting."
