"To me there's no fathomable reason the sport shouldn't be regulated in New York. Nobody can give me a real reason for it not to be here. This isn't 1995 anymore. They do have rules. It's not no-holds barred anymore. I'm feeling very strongly we're going to get it done. I'm feeling confident. I want the commission to be completely ready for it. I want their employees ready, the judges trained, as well as the referees and inspectors. There's no reason for this sport not to be allowed in New York."
