    I'd love for there to be one here, but there never has.

    Does it have something to do with State licensure etc?

    MMA is still relatively newly sanctioned and legalized in Pennsylvania. They were gung ho about getting it in Philly because of the proximity to Jersey and NYC, and because of the rich boxing history in that part of the country.

    I gathered it's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when the UFC will put on a show here.

    With the hiring of Cael Sanderson at PSU, the new acadamy they have up there, the several academies for MMA they have in the area...I think it is a matter of time till Pittsburgh and western PA become a bigger deal in MMA. An event at Consol for the UFC would sell out in an hour easy.
