On January 26, 2013, for the first time in over 10 years, sanctioned MMA comes to NYC thanks to Aggressive Combat Sports, who have been regularly hosting non-MMA martial arts events in the Hudson Valley, Long Island, and NYC.
Nearly a year ago, as a result of the Zuffa, et. al. federal lawsuit to lift the professional MMA ban, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman acknowledged that amateur MMA is legal and unregulated in the state. Since that time, the sport has moved out from the underground and a budding amateur MMA scene has begun to grow in NY. Several new events have been put on outside the NYC in Westchester, Rochester, Buffalo, Tonawanda, Albany and Ithica to name a few. This event will be the first within city limits.
