Plenty of Fish
Acceptable Bigotries. Court-Packing and the Framers. A Filibuster Milestone. Las Vegas — G eorges St-Pierre, the longest-reigning Ultimate Fighting Champion in the year history of the sport, looked whupped after five rounds of pummeling — bloodied and slow-moving, with his face lacerated and one eye swollen shut.
His opponent, Johny Hendricks, pumped his fist, grinned, and waited for the judges to anoint him. New York is the arena. Sheldon Silver, speaker of the New York Assembly since , is a union-allied Democrat, and he makes sure that any bill to legalize professional MMA will never make it to the floor for a vote, regardless of strong bipartisan support.
The state already has a large fan base; the UFC has estimated that , residents in the Big Apple alone tune in to fights on pay-per-view, and when UFC holds an event across the Hudson in Newark, more than half the attendees are New Yorkers. Without legalization, other states get the cash. Chris Weidman, the middleweight champion, was born in Baldwin, N. A devout Christian and New Yorker to the core, he used his strong social-media following to mobilize a food-and-clothing drive at his home church after Hurricane Sandy.
UFC is the fastest-growing sport in the world, perhaps in some measure because the UFC is famous for being good to its fans, interacting with them on social media and offering freebies and meet-and-greets with fighters. The UFC arranged for one of his favorite fighters, Wanderlei Silva, to phone his hospital room and encourage him. Full disclosure, but my interest in both the sport and union abuses pre-dates that act of kindness. As a sport that attracts a passionate following, the UFC, when it delves into politics, might well influence the ideological bent of its fans.
As Brandon Vasquez, a year-old Bronx native, waited for his chance to meet Weidman, he explained to me in detail the intricacies of the union battle and its economic impact on the state. And Jason Fattorusso, a fan and a union member himself, offered a nuanced critique: Though there is an obvious risk of concussions in MMA, blows are more evenly spread throughout the body than they are, for example, in boxing, which is already legal in New York.
And just weeks before, a junior featherweight boxer, Frankie Leal, died from a brain injury after a fight in Mexico. On fight night, I trailed Dr. He explained that the UFC requires all fighters to pass extensive medical screening before they enter the Octagon. Immediately after a match, fighters are whisked backstage for another exam by a doctor.
In a black medical tent, I watched Dr. Davidson and another M. A plastic surgeon even stands by during fights in case, for example, an elbow-throw yields a nasty wound that might produce a scar. Amateur fights, allowed in New York, have few such medical precautions. By legalizing MMA, New York could actually increase safety, both by upping the standards for matches and by providing an alternative to boxing. But many sports are violent and many athletes have made offensive comments.

Del Fiore Italian Market. Last week, family-owned Del Fiore Italian Market, a year-old business in Rocky Point, offered a box of "fresh cheese ravioli, a quart of meat or marinara sauce, and a loaf of bread" to workers going without pay.
