“Pols push for mixed martial arts in New York” (Terrence McCullen, May 2) is great news.

Mixed martial arts is a rapidly growing sport already legal in other states. It rivals both wrestling and boxing in fans and attendance for events. Why should we miss out on the jobs, economic growth and new tax revenues?

If Governor Andrew Cuomo, State Senate Leader Dean Skelos, State Assemby Spekaer Sheldon Silver and members of the State Legislature cannot work out their differences on issues of the day, send them to the octagon. Ditto for Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Council Speaker Christine Quinn and members of the City Council, Public Advocate Bill de Blasio and Comptroller John Liu. They can settle their disagreements on the mat!

That would be one sporting event voters would pay top dollar to see!
