MMA in New York? Again, the answer seems to be no
(mmajunkie.com)
Yet again, a bill to legalize MMA in New York state appears to be sunk before reaching a vote in the state’s assembly. The bill’s sponsor, Democratic Assembly Leader Joseph Morelle, today told Politics on the Hudson that, despite encouraging signals and a final push from MMA supporters, the votes aren’t there. After this year’s session was extended to vote on several high-profile bills, Morelle said the MMA bill lost momentum as legislators ran out of time. “A number of members who are counted as supporters were just unavailable today because of the scheduling, that we weren’t expected to be here this long,” he said, “and it’s really complicated efforts to get to 76 (votes). I think it’s looking less likely as the day wears on.” MMAjunkie was unable to reach Morelle or his spokesperson for an update. Seventy-six is the figure needed to get the assembly bill, A02604C, out of the 105-member Democratic conference and onto the assembly floor, where there is strong support among minority Republicans to legalize MMA. In the Republican-led senate, earlier MMA bills have passed in six previous legislative sessions. UFC Vice President of Regulatory Affairs Marc Ratner estimated this year’s MMA bill, which reportedly received more support after additional insurance safeguards were added, would receive 95 to 100 votes if it went to a general vote. But without the Democrats’ support, the bill is destined to expire in the assembly’s Tourism, Parks, Arts and Sports Development Committee, as it has for more than a half-decade.

Dan Henderson: Whatever Vitor Belfort was doing to change his body, 'it wasn’t the same thing I was doing’
(mmafighting.com)
Dan Henderson only has two fights left on his UFC contract, and at 44 years old, he wants to make those two fights count. "The two guys I'd like to fight would be Vitor (Belfort) and (Gegard) Mousasi," Henderson said Monday on The MMA Hour. "Mousasi, not for any other reason than I felt like I didn't get to fight him. And Vitor, you know, it'd be nice to fight him in the States, without his doctor as the head of the athletic commission."

'Sad' sparring partner explains how he injured UFC champion Jose Aldo
(mmafighting.com)
Jose Aldo’s next title defense against Conor McGregor is in jeopardy after the UFC featherweight got injured in a sparring session at Nova Uniao, and his teammate is devastated. Alcides Nunes, a 5-0 lightweight from Nova Uniao, was training with the UFC star in Rio de Janeiro when he ended up breaking Aldo’s ribs with a spinning back kick. Aldo vs. McGregor, scheduled to headline UFC 189 in Las Vegas, Nevada, on July 11, is now in danger. "I threw a kick but slipped with all the sweat on the mat, and ended up hitting his rib," Nunes told MMAFighting.com. "I was mimicking McGregor’s unorthodox style, things he does in the fight. I’m also left-handed, my style is similar to his, so that’s why they asked me to be part of his camp, but I ended up slipping and causing this injury." Nunes, who started training at Nova Uniao three years ago and is undefeated in MMA with four finishes in five professional bouts, reveals that Aldo continued to train after he got hit, but eventually stopped and was rushed to the hospital.
