New York State (WKBW) - A plan to legalize mixed martial arts in New York will not move forward this year.

For the fourth straight year, assembly democrats denied a proposal to make MMA fighting legal in New York State, which each year has passed state senate.

New York State is currently the only state in the country not allowing MMA fighting.
