12:24 PM ET 04.19 | The UFC's 20th anniversary show seemed close to being held at Madison Square Garden this fall, but the plans have changed. New York doesn't have mixed martial arts on the upcoming budget, and UFC president Dana White believes the Culinary Union is to blame again. "The (New York) commission is 100 percent behind it. Everybody wants it there except the Culinary Union," said White. "Every time we try to move forward and progress in New York, the Las Vegas Culinary Union starts hammering everybody with letters and they're working the politicians and everything else."
