Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com blog. This week, Breen is joined by veteran MMA journalist Jim Genia.
Breen and New York's Genia discuss the latest in the push for MMA regulation in New York, including the UFC announcing an April 23, 2016, event at Madison Square Garden, the next round of fights in the legislature and the UFC's legal battles against the New York Attorney General, Eric Schneiderman. Breen and Genia break down the UFC's three-headed attack against the state, why even if everything goes according to plan the UFC may not run at MSG in April and what an appropriate main event would be for Zuffa's first MSG effort.
Breen and Genia also break down the surprising political relevance of the World Kickboxing Association, what regulating the sport means for grassroots MMA in New York, the future of New York's infamous underground amateur cards and how many tickets a UFC card comprised only of Team Tiger Schulmann Karate fighters could sell.
