Coming soon to Madison Square Garden?

New York Governor David Paterson has been struggling with his state's bleak fiscal outlook, and now wants to lift New York's 13-year-old ban on mixed martial arts exhibitions in order to collect sales tax revenue off of it.

Back when New York banned MMA, if memory serves, participation in the sport was limited to men only (I believe that's still the case with the UFC league). Today there are women fighting too, and some of them are pretty impressive. One of the ladies below does a nice job of finishing the fight (this fight took place last fall, but I just caught a replay of it on Showtime last week).
