No Holds Barred: Future of MMA Panel, Day Two, and Re-Legalization of MMA in New York 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman presents the second day of the "Future of MMA" panel, held Sunday, October 25, at the MMA World Expo in New York City.

The panelists on the second day of this two-day event and discussion were attorney Michael Kim, who has been active in the legislative battle to re-legalize mixed martial arts in the State of New York; MMA journalist Jim Genia; and Eddie Goldman. The discussion was moderated by Keisha Morrisey. The audio from the first day of this panel has already been posted.

The second day of this panel discussion picked up where we left off, and allowed us to elaborate on many new topics. Besides reviewing the history of the struggle to re-legalize MMA in New York, and to overturn the regressive 1997 law banning it, which still stands today, we discussed such topics as the dangers of unregulated, underground fights, who has been against mixed martial arts in New York and why, and much more.

Clarity on these types of issues is important if this battle to re-legalize MMA in New York is to be successful, which it thus far has not been.

Just from my blog:

There's the uneducated non-MMA media, and the uneducated MMA media. They're both problematic. The latter wasn't addressed during the expo but we must keep it in mind when . . . no, especially when one of the guests speaks states "we can look at how Nevada does things." If Keith Kizer's payoffs are your guide for sport regulation, you've got trouble.

"Who's looking out for the fighter?" "I would like to see the Mohammad Ali Act extended to Mixed Martial Arts." These are the most important statements of the audio. This discussion begins at 27 minutes or so.
