Group fights to bring MMA to New York

ALBANY -- The fight to legalize Mixed Martial Arts in New York State saw round 1 on Tuesday.

Proponents of the sport held a news conference urging Assembly Democrats to pass a bill allowing MMA in the state. The Senate has given the green light 5 years in a row, but the bill has continued to get defeated in the Assembly.

New York is the only state in the country that has not legalized Mixed Martial Arts.
