Chael Sonnen and others talk about what is really keeping MMA out of NYPosted on March 20, 2012, 05:10 PM by Trent Reinsmith
As everyone is painfully aware, mixed martial arts remain illegal in New York State. Steven Crowder recently released a rather lengthy and in depth look at situation in New York and he boiled it down to the simple fact that the Culinary Union has the politicians on their side.
The arguments that MMA is pure brutality just don’t hold water, as Renzo Gracie points out, stating that he would be very worried if his son would tell him that he was going to become a boxer.
Crowder uses video of Ariel Helwani and Chael Sonnen to detail how the Culinary Union’s beef with the Fertitta brothers has helped keep MMA out of New York.
The video is informative and Sonnen’s remarks are particularly scathing when it comes to the politicians that are keeping MMA out of the state.
What do you think LowKick'ers, will MMA ever be legal in NY?
