Madison Square Garden, its long been a dream destination for UFC president Dana White. It also has eluded him and every other MMA organization on earth thanks to a ban on the sport in the state of New York.

That all changed on Tuesday, after a 113-25 vote in the New York state legislature lifted the ban. With the vote and ensuing signing by governor Andrew Cuomo, MMA is now legalized in all 50 states in the United States of America.

It also means it won’t be long before White books Madison Square Garden for one epic Pay-Per-View event. UFC already has a crazy card planned for its biggest PPV ever, UFC 200 on July 9, so it may be a bit of time before a MSG and UFC marriage comes together.
