Sen Griffo speaks on 2016 MMA bill before passing Senate

February 01, 2016

On Monday, Feb. 1, state Senator Joseph Griffo spoke about the legislation he sponsored to legalize Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) in New York State, the only state to currently ban professional compettions in the nation. The State Senate went on to pass Sen. Griffo's bill for the seventh year in a row, but the senator is hopeful there is now enough support behind the bill to finally have it pass the Assembly.
