NYS 1st SANCTIONED MMA FIGHT

Yes you read it correctly; legal MMA in NYS sanctioned by USMTA. How? Under NYS law only pro MMA fights are illegal, not armature fights. The best part of this is the venue; it is inside a roller rink. More after the jump.

Since this is my first fanpost don't expect a lot. I find it odd because well it is. If you watch Trailer Park Boys then you know the area the fight is taking place; doesn’t matter if you have never been to North Tonawanda (NT) it is a terrible place. I only go there if I need hunting/fishing stuff or am really blazed and want KFC or am lost. I do plan on visiting NT when the Trailer Park Boys come to do their stand up over summer but that is something unrelated. The last time I went to that roller rink I was a child and I think it was yellow on the inside. They yelled at me for bring roller blades to a roller rink.

Without talking a ton of trash (I am going to save the trash for my personal ranting and spare you the good people of BE such nonsense) the local martial arts/MMA scene is questionable at best in the general Buffalo, NY area. There a few good schools with very knowledgeable and experienced instructors, but they are small in numbers. You can be the judge just do a Google search and see how few schools we have and then look at the instructors and their qualifications. Why would you want a Golden Gloves champ or state wrestling champion teaching you kickboxing when he or she has no prior experience in the sport? I don't know either but it is very TPB if you ask me. The only reason I mention the quality of the schools is because this is where I discovered the flyer. If anyone else is involved with the local scene please speak up I would love to be proven wrong, as I would love to find a kick ass gym with competent instructors to join. Anyways I am done ranting discuss this or don't, be mean or nice, I just thought this was an odd event worthy of a post.
