Here Are Three Good Reasons Why MMA Should Be Legal in New York State

William LeBlanc

As of right now, professional Mixed Martial Arts is not legal in New York State. To that we say ‘boo’. The lovely ring card girls of Cage Wars are stepping up to help the cause. 

In order of appearance, Brittney J, ChelsieAryn and Jessica Storie are the girls who make sure that we know what round it is during these fights. Despite professional MMA being illegal in New York, amateur fights are still just fine, and that’s what they promote.

According to the Cage Wars/Five Guys Fighting Facebook page:

Five guys Fighting was started by five guys all interested and experienced in the fight game(from pro boxers, to jiu jitsu and everything in between). We wanted to bring the fights to the fans here in Upstate NY all the while taking care of each individual fighter.

 

I spoke with Cage Wars girl Chelsie Aryn, and she told me that they were going to do a special photo shoot to promote MMA in New York, and hopefully make more people aware and eventually get it to be legal. The past Cage Wars events have been very successful, and MMA is a sport that is growing in popularity day by day.

In a recent NY Post article, while the writer said many crude things about the fighters, interviewed MMA fighter Joseph Brady, who said that legalizing MMA in NY would provide more opportunity for the fighters, and boost the economy.

Cage Wars and Five Guys Fighting have a number of upcoming matches on the way, including one in Hudson, NY on April 20. You can get complete fight information, and tickets on the Cage Wars site. If you are interested in being a Cage Wars fighter, you can also get that information there, as well.
