The panelists on the first day of this two-day event and discussion were Melvina Lathan, chairwoman of the New York State Athletic Commission; attorney Michael Kim, who has been active in the legislative battle to re-legalize mixed martial arts in the State of New York; and Eddie Goldman. The discussion was moderated by Keisha Morrisey. We will post the audio from the second day of this panel shortly.
This is the discussion which just about everyone in the mixed martial arts and combat sports has been anticipating, since the sanctioning and return of mixed martial arts to New York would obviously be so important to the growth and health of the sport. But we also delved into the history of the incredible and complex struggle to legalize MMA, and to overturn this regressive 1997 law banning MMA in New York, which still stands today. We also voiced many criticisms of the structure of mixed martial arts today, while remaining firm in our support for its sanctioning in New York.
