End Of Week Wrap-Up From NYC (Update)

What’s up everyone? Still in New York City, but found a little time tonight to catch up on what’s been going on in the world of mixed martial arts the past two days. The short answer is not much, but I’ll dump a bunch of links below in case you missed any of the news.

By the way, New York City is pretty badass. We explored Manhattan today and saw most of the major landmarks and locations like Times Square, Ground Zero and Central Park. It’s been a culture shock for me coming from an average-size town in Florida, but well worth the trip. You should make it here at least once in your lifetime if you’ve never been. If nothing else, come for the pizza. The pizza I ate tonight was freakin’ awesome…the bum diarrhea in the subway, not so much.
