UFC waits for Big Apple to bite

Fri., Jan. 31, 2014, midnight

UFC fighters are having fun as the life of the Super Bowl party. Renan Barao, Frank Mir and Ricardo Lamas were among the fighters at Madison Square on Thursday to promote UFC’s Super Bowl weekend show. But the news conference is as close as the MMA’s dominant organization will get to having its fighters inside state borders. New Jersey is still home to the must-watch events in the East while UFC and New York continue to grapple over whether to allow fights in New York. The UFC’s marquee card will be held Saturday at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., just a few miles from where the Super Bowl will be played Sunday. – AP
