What could this be about? Is this going to be the announcement of legalizing MMA in New York passing and a UFC Event announcement for Madison Square Garden in New York City?

It looks like the UFC has its New Year's Resolution.

Just a few days into 2011, the Nevada-based promotion will formally announce its intent to bring mixed martial arts to New York as soon as possible during a Thursday press conference at Madison Square Garden.

The press conference, which will take place at the world-famous MSG arena, will be attended by UFC president Dana White, Zuffa co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta, current lightweight champ Frankie Edgar, and former light-heavyweight champ Rashad Evans, along with MSG executives.

The UFC is also expected to release an economic impact study which details the benefits of regulating MMA in the Empire State.

New York is just one of six states that does not currently regulate the sport.

While the UFC has lobbied for MMA in New York in the past, this will be the first time the promotion formally announces its intentions to run at event in Manhattan. Previous attempts at legislating MMA sanctioning into New York law have been met with road blocks in each of the last two years.

Neighboring New Jersey has successfully hosted events in the past, and will once again play host to the UFC in March, with Evans squaring off with Mauricio "Shogun" Rua for the light-heavyweight title.

So their announcing their intent to bring MMA to the greater New York area, namely MSG. And it's good that their fighting this battle now, after doing a massive year of PPVs and having proven that a UFC event is a good thing for cities' economies. Good on Dana and UFC - And MMA in general!

We need UFC at MSG

It definitely will be

I'm guessing the UFC would hope for something like

Main-Event
Cain Velasquez Vs Brock Lesnar 2

Co-Main
George St. Pierre Vs Anderson Silva

We need UFC at MSG
10x for posting.

It could turn out to be something serious.

I like to build scenarios in my mind, but if i'm not mistaking, the UFC did some modifications to its cards this year.
127 became 126.
The scheduled 131 card became 129, they scratched the Abu Dhabi card...

My scenario: maybe they know more then they're telling (i'm sure of that) and they have something certain for MMA in New York. And they have this information for a while now, but have kept this as a secret.

So far they had some big announcements this year: about Toronto, UFC going back to Brasil...
Maybe this is serious and they will finally have MMA legalised in NY!

I hope they do!
