Danho’s long journey finally leads to UFC

Chances are you would have guessed it without him mentioning it, but Jarjis Danho loves eating. That’s not the only reason why the UFC’s newest heavyweight prospect – who makes his Octagon debut on UFC FIGHT PASS on Feb. 27 – packs a whopping 290 pounds into a 6-foot-3 frame, but the love for food did save the former powerlifter’s family’s life in a way . . . Click here for more at UFC.com

UFC continues efforts to bring live events to New York State

“We are disappointed by the District Court’s denial of our motion for a preliminary injunction and its effort to redirect the litigation to the state courts,” UFC COO Lawrence Epstein said. “One thing, and one thing only, prevents Madison Square Garden and other New York venues from hosting UFC events that are allowed in the other 49 States in the Union — that is the New York law that we believe violates the federal Constitution. Today’s decision, while disappointing, only underscores the importance of UFC’s pending appeal to the Second Circuit. UFC will evaluate this decision with an eye to pursuing every effective avenue to bring New Yorkers the same live events available to spectators throughout the United States.” . . . Click here for more at UFC.com
