Man, it seems like it was a just a year ago that the UFC first came to New York City, and turned Madison Square Garden into a Conor McGregor-inspired madhouse of chanting Irish fans and drunken revelry.
Oh wait, it was a year ago. New York only legalized MMA a little more than a year and a half ago, and since then we’ve seen the athletic commission mess up weigh-ins, give a female fighter trouble for having fake boobs, and blow some calls. But no one starts off knowing how to do everything, so hopefully the Commission will keep everyone safe and sound when UFC 217 goes down at MSG on Saturday night.
With Michael Bisping, Georges St-Pierre and a bunch of other stars on the card, it should be a fun event. Here are highlights from yesterday’s open workouts.
