As reported by Newsday:

Legalizing mixed martial arts events in New York State would generate more than $68 million in economic activity per year, according to a UFC-commissioned study released Thursday morning.

That figure is nearly three times higher than a 2011 study released by HR&A Advisors, which also conducted the new analysis. According to the study, statewide expansion of UFC Gyms would generate an additional $67 million in spending per year by 2017. That would bring the total yearly economic impact of MMA to $135 million within four years.
