NY MMA

On Saturday, July 12, one of New York's biggest and best promotions, Aggressive Combat Sports presents Aggressive Combat Championship 7. The event takes place at the York College Arena, 94-20 Guy R Brewer Blvd, Jamaica, New York.

Professional MMA is still illegal in New York, but thanks to the efforts of promotions like Aggressive Combat Sports, the sport is thriving. These are amateur MMA contests, but they use full MMA rules and you will not find better talent anywhere.

I'll be in the cage doing my thing on July 12, and hope to see many of my fellow New Yorkers in the arena.

The New York Fight Exchanges third outing, which took place on Saturday, June 7, 2014, was called "Unstoppable." The name is apt, not only for this particular event, but for the promotion itself. The NYFE, after just three shows, is already the biggest and best amateur MMA promotion in the state of New York.

NYFE events take place at the famed Amazura Concert Hall in Jamaica, Queens.  And in this third outing, NY fight fans enjoyed the finest mixed martial arts offered in the state of New York. Once again, promoters Tom Sconzo and Mike Washington did an amazing job putting on fights that not only pleased the crowd, but gave New York fighters the opportunity to fight in their home state.

As always, the card was stacked with talent, with fighters representing some of the best camps anywhere, including Long Island MMA, Renzo Gracie Fight Academy, East West MMA and the Jungle Gym. The event, which is sanctioned by the WKA, had three vacant titles up for grabs.

The first title fight, for the vacant WKA NY State 135 pound crown, featured Elijah Punzone from East West MMA taking on Mike "Caveman" Kuhn out of Long Island MMA. The first round was a back and forth battle, but in the second round, Kuhn came out with a vengeance and stopped Punzone with a TKO.

The second title fight, for the vacant WKA NY State 185 pound crown, featured Constantine Gemelas, out of East West MMA, taking on Eric Ott, out of Long Island MMA. The first two rounds saw some great exchanges on the feet as well as exciting scrambles. Both men had their moments in the fight until the third round, when Ott landed some huge shots on the very tough Gemelas, forcing the referee to call a halt to the contest.

In the very highly anticipated main event, undefeated fighter Jerome "The Bull" Mickle put his 10-0 record on the line against yet another Long Island MMA fighter, Hugh McKenna. McKenna came into the bout with a record of 2-2, but records can be very deceiving. And it showed in the fight, as McKenna immediately took the feared striker Mickle down and kept him down for most of the first round. In the second round it was more of the same. At one point Mickle was able to get back to his feet and land some punches, but McKenna's wrestling takedowns were relentless. McKenna kept the fight on the ground and in the second round took Mickle's back, sinking in the rear naked choke for the victory and WKA USA welterweight title.

All in all it was an amazing night of fights, and it solidified the NYFE's standing as New York's premier fight promotion.  The event was videotaped by Ring Fever, and should be available for viewing soon. For more info and photos of this event, be sure to check out the NYFE's website and Facebook page.

The next show is September 20, 2014. Make sure you get your tickets early, because this event, like all NYFE events, will be unstoppable!

On March 7, New York Fight Exchange (NYFE MMA) put on their sophomore event of amateur mixed martial arts in “The Big Apple.” The WKA sanctioned event was one of the biggest mma events to hit the state. Nearly 2,000 people packed in the Amazura Concert Hall in Jamaica, Queens to see some of the best amateur competitors from the tri-state compete in 13 completive bouts. The event received a huge presence of mma journalist and was highly praised.

And like the first event, the venue was packed with eager NY fight fans who were treated to an amazing night of action. Promoters Tom Sconzo and Mike Washington, in only their second NYFE event, showed everyone who is boss when it comes to providing MMA to New York fight fans” reported Kevin Garvey for The Garv.Com.

“NYFE” has clearly put themselves as the front runner to help demonstrate to the elected officials of New York, how safe regulated amateur mma can be while sanctioned by a “pre-approved” sanctioning body such as the World Kickboxing Association (WKA), which is the only sanctioning body permitted to govern professional combat sports such as kickboxing.

“We (NYFE) plan to continue showcasing the best amateur fighters on the highest profile cards. Ideally, once professional mma is allowed in the state we would like to do ammy/pro events if permitted.” Said Mike Washington, co-owner of New York Fight Exchange, in an interview with “Life of a Fighter.”

Although MMA is legal in just about every other state, New York still prohibits professional mixed martial arts events from taking place. Despite the state having two UFC champions, Jon Jones and Chris Weidman, NY politicians have shown a stubborn unwillingness in allowing the sport to flourish in Jones' and Weidman's home state. But all is not lost for NY fans who want to see live mixed martial arts action without having to travel out of town. Because the New York Fight Exchange has stepped up and begun putting on amateur MMA bouts, which are not banned under NY state law.

Last Saturday, March 15, the NYFE put on their second event. This show, dubbed The Ides of March, took place at the Amazura Concert Hall in Jamaica, Queens. And like the first event, the venue was packed with eager NY fight fans who were treated to an amazing night of action. Promoters Tom Sconzo and Mike Washington, in only their second NYFE event, showed everyone who is boss when it comes to providing MMA to New York fight fans. This event was as professional as they come, and the Amazura was rocking as the fighters left everything they had inside the NYFE cage.

There were two titles on the line at The Ides of March. In the co-main event, challenger Rob "Hurricane" Scotti took on NYFE champ Felipe Carlos. After a brief but vicious exchange on the feet, the fight went to the ground where Scotti worked for a heel hook. As Carlos tried to roll out of it, his foot popped and, despite refusing to tap, the ref jumped in and stopped the contest. Neither Carlos nor the crowd was happy with that decision, but the referee's job is to protect the fighters, and so it is really tough to argue with the stoppage. Carlos was offered a rematch for the June 7 show, but he might be turning pro instead, and we'll have to wait and see if this rematch happens. Still it was an impressive performance by the new champion, and I look forward to see him back in the cage in June.

In the main event, Bronx fighter Jerome "The Bull" Mickle continued his dominant reign as NYFE welterweight champion. After being mounted by the very tough challenger, Jonathan "The Don" Lopez, Mickle reversed the position and started landing bombs from inside Lopez's guard. After several big shots landed flush, the referee jumped in and Mickle was declared the winner by TKO. It was yet another outstanding performance by Mickle, who moves to a perfect 10-0. Watching Mickle fight is a real treat, and if you haven't seen him in action yet, make sure you come down to his next title defense in June.

All in all, it was a great night of action. The fans in attendance, which included some very special VIPs, were more than satisfied by the end of the evening. And it was a personal pleasure for me to be able to ring announce in my home state. It was also great to see so many members of the MMA media in attendance. The NYFE is already a big deal, and it's only getting bigger.

It's interesting to note that while the UFC has been lobbying New York to legalize MMA for years now, all the lobbying in the world can't do what Mike Washington and Tom Sconzo did with the NYFE. These two pioneers have shown the world--and especially the NY pols--that NY MMA events can be run safely, smoothly and with the utmost professionalism. And they've only just begun. They deserve all the credit in the world for braving many obstacles faced by anyone putting on MMA events in NY, and overcoming them all. Albany, please take note.

For more info on the event, including upcoming video and pictures, visit the NYFE website. You can also follow them on Facebook. The next show is June 7, so get ready! Because the NYFE and MMA in NY are both here to stay.
