We’ve all read about NY Assemblyman Bob Reilly, who’s essentially the face of the opposition to legalizing MMA in New York, a million times. Well, here he is actually spewing his nonsense out so you can get a better idea of just how ignorant he is on the subject. In the above video, he lays out his arguments why MMA should remain illegal in NY, and reminds me why I despise politicians so much.
Reilly apparently isn’t who we should be concerned about though. MMA Payout has an excellent piece on how labor politics may truly be at the heart of the situation.
Props to CagePotato for the video find.
