Apparently, fighting in New York may not be the best for MMA fighters. I think a lot may want to do it once for exposure, especially the MSG event, but given that fighters already complain about pay and Reebok I could see a lot of them thinking twice.

Does anyone know if the Ali Act would have any effect? I don't think so since the legislation seems to affect boxers too. Seems way too many people take from the top against fighters.

If you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere.

The taxes are a trade-off for the media coverage you will receive as opposed to fighting in Florida, South Dakota, or Tennessee.

You're right. I just wonder what will happen by the third or fourth event or if an event is held in another New York market like a Buffalo, Syracuse or Rochester.
