MMA is a controversial but popular sport televised around the world and legal in every state but New York and Connecticut, and soon New York may be the last one left.
ALBANY — The Connecticut state Legislature gave final approval Wednesday to a bill to legalize mixed martial arts, an act that could soon make New York the last state where the popular — but violent — sport is still outlawed.
The bill will soon go to Connecticut Gov. Dan Malloy whose spokeswoman would say only that “the governor will review this bill carefully when it gets to his desk.”
