Dear Editor:

“Mixed martial arts bill moving forward” (by Domenick Rafter, March 21, multiple editions) is great news. Mixed martial artsisa rapidly growing sport already legal in other states. Itrivalsboth wrestling and boxing infans and attendance for Pay for View events. Why should wemiss out on the jobs,economic growth and new tax revenues?

If Gov. Cuomo, state Senate Leader Dean Skelos, Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver andmembers of the state Legislature cannotwork out their differences on issues of the day, send them tothe Octagon. They can settle their disagreements onthe mat! That would be one sporting event voterswould pay top dollar to see!
