NEW YORK---[WENY]---Women in Mixed Martial Arts are pushing for the New York Assembly to legalize the sport this year.
      This comes after female critics said the sport promotes sexist attitudes and violence at home. However, some women say MMA is empowering.
      Governor Cuomo says he's not opposed to making it legal, but the decision is up to the Democrat controlled assembly. MMA supporters are hoping the bill will come to a floor vote before this session ends.
