UFC president Dana White will hold a press conference today inside Madison Square Garden in New Yok to announce the company’s commitment to bringing an Octagon to the NYC. Fans can stream the presser live right here on 5thRound.com at 2PM ET/11AM PT.
Joining White at the podium will be president of Madison Square Garden Sports Scott O’Neil, UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta and lightweight champion Frankie Edgar will also be in attendance.
According to the official press release, UFC brass will unveil a new economic impact study which details the financial benefits of regulating MMA in the state of New York.
In addition to their undying pursuit of world domination, White and Co. have made no bones about their intentions of hosting a show inside MSG. Not much has been able to slow the world’s fastest growing sport, but New York’s State Senate has done its best in preventing MMA’s entry into the country’s largest market.
