The UFC makes it to New York City ... sort of

The UFC has been working for years to get MMA legalized in the state of New York, and though they've inched closer to seeing the sport in the Empire State, they're not quite there yet. That won't keep them from trying to get into New York City in every imaginable way, though.

Since UFC 111 in Newark, N.J., sold out, the UFC is having a viewing party at the famed Radio City Music Hall, with appearances from Chuck Liddell, Matt Serra and Stephan Bonnar.

"We are holding this viewing party so all of our fans in New York can experience UFC 111 at the iconic Radio City Music Hall, one of the coolest places in the city, and with some of our biggest UFC stars," said Dana White via press release.

Tickets for the viewing party are $25 in advance, $30 the day of the event, and on sale here. Before the viewing party, the pre-fight press conference will also be at RCMH and will be free and open to the public. Check it out on Wednesday, March 24 at 1:30 ET.
