    The rumor is that the new commissioner is a fan of MMA…

  2. Kelvin says:

    Cyph…that rumor is true.

  3. nick lembo says:

    Melvina is a great choice.
    Smart, honest and open minded.
    She is very willing and able to regulate mma when the Legislature sees fit to pass it. It is a good moment for NY mma fans

  4. Grape Knee High says:

    Am I the only person who imagined Melvin Guillard in a woman’s wig?

  5. Mr. Roadblock says:

    Ron Scott Stevens is as crooked as they come. It is great to see that he is out as head of the NYSAC.

    Not sure that this is a boon for MMA though. It is the State Tourism Board that has to approve MMA.
