Senator Mark Grisanti (R,I- 60) is scheduled to appear on "The Independents" Friday, December 20th at 9pm on the Fox News Business Network to discuss the Mixed Martial Arts legislation in the New York State Legislature.     Senator Grisanti is a co-sponsor of lifting the ban on Mixed Martial Arts in New York State and has successfully passed the legislation in the Senate multiple times, with no action in the Assembly. If passed, the legislation would allow events like UFC pay-per-views to take place in New York State. According to a recent economic impact study an estimated $33 million in new revenue for Upstate New York and $68 million statewide would be generated if Mixed Martial Arts legislation was to be approved.This legislation has never been taken up for a vote in the Assembly.A link to the show's website can be found here: is a list of stations in Western New York that air Fox News Business Network: - Time Warner WNY: Channels 167 and 719- Verizon FiOS: Channels 117, 617 and 1547 - Dish Network: Channel 206- Direct TV: Channel 359
