01 Jan 2012 Steven Crowder Video: Mixed Martial Arts Banned as Favor to Unions
Why do New York politicians insist on banning Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), a sport that is both popular and revenue-generating? Steven Crowder destroys the myth that politicians’ concerns are really about safety, and blows open the truth: that unions are effectively using the New York political system to stifle a competitor.
Who suffers? Certainly the athletes, who depend on the MMA and its Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) for income. But also New Yorkers, who lose millions of dollars in much-needed revenue for their economy.
As UFC fighter Chael Sonnen simply states, “Let’s be fair. We don’t need New York. But New York sure could use us.”
