I'll be in the media section asking questions and being all reporter-ish this afternoon at 2 p.m. for the UFC special event at Madison Square Garden. You can watch it live here in Fightin' Words then stick around for more reactions from behind the scenes and what not throughout the rest of the day.

UFC is announcing its intent to host an event at MSG once mixed martial arts is legalized in New York State. On the dais will be UFC president Dana White, UFC chairman and CEO Lorenzo Fertitta, MSG Sports president Scott O'Neil, UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar (Tom's River, N.J.) and former light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans (Niagara Falls, N.Y.).

(You'll need the latest version of Microsoft Silverlight to view this live stream. It should prompt you to get it if you don't already have it. But if not, here's the link.)
