Take notice New York; the Ultimate Fighting Championship isn't going away without a fight.

UFC officials today announced they have filed a lawsuit against New York State officials "challenging the constitutionality of the state law banning live professional MMA events and associated activities."

Along with a group of plaintiffs that includes fighters, fans and trainers, UFC executives hope to overturn the state's current ban on MMA, citing several constitutional violations.

Happy to see the UFC not giving up.

I guess Arum has corrputed the thoughts of the politicians.

Never could fatham how something that is proven to make the State and Cities that host the events money, doesn't get regualted, especially with debts always looming, not saying that is solves the debts, but would help because it's not just a UFC thing, other promotions would be able to have events in the State, not just on Indian owned land, causing more revenue.
