MMA Bill Fails in New York. Sky Is Blue. Water Wet.

Should I even bother dressing this article up with fancy words and intro paragraphs? It would just be reiterating that same sh*t New York-born/based MMA fans have been dealing with for as long as I can remember, with the lone exception being the arrest of Sheldon Silver — one of the biggest opponents of the MMA in NY bill — being arrested on corruption charges in January. Nah, I think I’ll just cut to the chase.

The bill to legalize professional MMA in NY has died once again before it reached the legislature. In other news: The sky is blue. Water is wet. Arrested Development was cancelled way too soon.

Here’s some politician saying political words about why the bill failed.

My big challenge today is that a number of members who are counted as supporters were just unavailable today because of the scheduling, that we weren’t expected to be here this long,” Assembly Majority Leader Joseph Morelle, D-Irondequoit, Monroe County, the bill’s sponsor, told Gannett’s Albany Bureau.

“And it’s really complicated efforts to get to 76. I think it’s looking less likely as the day wears on.”

I really don’t feel like wasting any more mental energy on this, so I’ll just chalk up the fact that professional, sanctioned MMA has failed in New York for the billionth time to “the ebb and flow of life.” At least everyone is now free to love who they want to, which is a slightly bigger deal than some dumb state being dumb. Ebb and flow. Ebb and flow.
