- Reporter asks about the poll from last year indicating 68% of people were against MMA.
- White: The poll depends on where you hold it, who was asked. The 18-34 year old demographic wants it.
- Assemblyman: I won't speak for the governor, but he seems open to MMA in NY.
- White: This is New York City. This is Madison Square Garden. We want to be here.
- MMA fans can expect NYC to host at least two events – including one at Madison Square Garden – within the first year of legal promotion in the state.
