Wrestling and MMA Get Raw Deal in New York

Combat sports never get off easy in New York. The mixed martial arts community is currently in the middle of a multi-million dollar, UFC-backed campaign for legalization in the Empire State. Meanwhile, New York high school wrestling programs are struggling to gain attention on the national high school wrestling stage.

High school wrestling is very competitive in New York, but New York high school wrestlers have limited opportunities to prove their worth because state rules do not allow out-of-state competition. This rule adversely affects visibility, rankings, and general interstate relationships with the national wrestling community. bloggers Martin Floreani and "Long Island" Marty tackle this among other prevalant issues  in the wrestling world in the seventh installment of their video debate series "Stranglehold with LI Marty."
