Join Our Coalition!

If you are a New Yorker and own an MMA gym, run an MMA oriented business, train MMA, or are just a fan take a few moments to join our coalition. All you need to do is post a reply to this thread with your name, where you reside in NY, your business or gym, and why you support the Coalition to Legalize MMA in NY. We will start a new page here listing all our Coalition members!

Membership costs nothing! The Coalition is a non-partisan volunteer group dedicated to getting MMA legalized in New York State. You can be a part of making history. If you support our mission and want to be a part of it, reply to this thread! Subscribe to this blog and get on our mailing list by e-mailing nymmanow@gmail.com

If you want to go one step further, download our NY MMA NOW! logo and post it on your own website with a link to this blog.



Let's get the word out. This is not a petition. This is a statement that you support MMA in NY and will help the coalition get the job done!

    We really need this sport to be legal in this state, not only for the fans but for the amateur fighters. I feel that they are the ones who are hurt by this the most.

    We would like to be listed as a member of the Coalition and our members would be interested in learning about all future coalition events.

    Natale Corsi is our new Liberty Outreach Coordinator and he will be our point man.
