Liveblogging MMA legalization in New York

Intrepid reporter Jim Genia is on site today in New York liveblogging the UFC’s attempt to legalize MMA. No, there’s no vote today or anything but there’s a roundtable meeting where they’re laying the groundwork:

MMA Journalist is live in downtown New York City blogging the New York State Assembly roundtable on the legalization of MMA in the Empire State. What the heck is a “roundtable”? Basically, just a chance for the UFC to rap about how much money the sport can bring to the state. Assemblyman Steven Englebright is the master of ceremonies, and in attendence thus far are Marc Ratner and Jeff Blatnik. After telling Ratner that he was my hero, he replied to me: “We’ll get this done.”
