The hashtag and twitter campaign #MMA2NY is finally a reality. The governor of the state of New York, Andrew Cuomo, signed the legislation today making MMA legal in this state.

Once this happened, the UFC announced their first event at Madison Square Garden which will be UFC 205 on November 12th. No fight cards have been announced, but many potential match-ups have been rumored.

UFC will hold an upstate event after the one in MSG which could include smaller cities like Buffalo or Albany. Who do you think will be on the first card in NYC?
