“I think it’s barbaric and I don’t think it’s appropriate to have it in New York,” Governor George Pataki said in 1997. “A disgraceful, animalistic and disgusting contest which can result in severe injuries to contestants and sets an abominable example for our youth,” state senator Roy Goodman called it the same year.

Get a good card set up for Madison Square Garden and it will be the UFC's biggest profit ever. Bring MMA to the Big Apple!

This used to be the general populations feelings about Ultimate Fighting now I think more people realize it's a professional combat sport and isin't barbaric but competitive.
