UFC PRESENTS DIAZ V. MILLER ON CINCO DE MAYO FOR A LIGHTWEIGHT CONTENDERS FIGHT

THE HISPANIC BLOG IS THE LATEST HISPANIC NEWS BY JESSICA MARIE GUTIERREZ

UFC Presents FOX Card, Lightweight Title Picture Clears Up

It may be happening in New Jersey at the IZOD Center this May but the UFC continues to speak volumes about where it wants to hold an event by placing the official UFC on FOX press conference at the historic Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

Free and open to the public, UFC President Dana White spoke to the crowd yesterday along with his main event fighters as an excited group of fans and media gathered to ask questions.

The event will take place May 5th, Cinco de Mayo, in New Jersey and will feature Jersey native Jim Miller vs. Nate Diaz in a lightweight contenders fight.

At the press conference, reporters pressed White as to who would fight lightweight champion Benson “Smooth” Henderson.  Would it be the winner of this match up, Anthony “Showtime” Pettis, or would Frankie Edgar get his rematch.

The answer would come last night as White re-tweeted Edgar’s jubilant response and then tweeted his own announcement.

“Frankie Edgar and Ben Henderson rematch will be this summer,” White tweeted

Depending on the outcome, we could see the winner of Henderson/Edgar face the winner of Miller/Diaz or Pettis after this summer.

At the press conference, the sometimes polarizing Diaz amused the crowd with his short answers and his lack of interest in the type of event his brother Nick Diaz once referred to as a “beauty contest.”

When Fox News Latino asked Diaz if he thought his placement in the main event of a network broadcast was a show of respect for the fighter, his response was classic Diaz.

“Yeah, I don’t know. I think it kind of goes depending on how your fights go.” Diaz said.  “I’m glad to be on the card, it’s cool to be headlining.”

Another big topic from the MMA fans and media was whether or not legislation would finally pass to sanction mixed martial arts in the state of New York with the ultimate goal of getting the UFC into Madison Square Garden, a fight “Mecca.”

White avoided making any promises or bold predictions this time out as to whether this would be the year the UFC would finally be allowed to put an event on in New York.

“I’ve been saying that for like four years so I don’t want to say it again,” said White. “We’re going to keep grinding and grinding until we get it done.”

Other matches taking place on the main card include:

Pat Barry vs. Lavar Johnson

Johny Hendricks vs. Josh Koscheck

Alan Belcher vs. Rousimar Palhares

DO HISPANICS HAVE A HISTORICAL MUSEUM: THE HISPANIC SOCIETY UNVEILED

THE HISPANIC BLOG BY JESSICA MARIE GUTIERREZ

20120226-135515.jpg

The Hispanic Society of America is an imposing museum and research library.
It has a world-class collection of Iberian art that includes works from such masters as Goya, Velazquez and El Greco, and monumental sculptures by Anna Hyatt Huntington, the wife of the society’s founder.

20120226-135705.jpg

Yet the 104-year-old institution in Washington Heights, just blocks from the Audubon Ballroom where Malcolm X was assassinated, is not high on the itinerary of many tourists — or even New Yorkers. Some don’t even know it exists.

20120226-135816.jpg

Staying put in a neighborhood that over time has gone from pastoral to gritty and is now a Latin-flavored urban mix has come at a cost of visitors, revenue and recognition. But the Hispanic Society of America is fighting to make itself and its treasures known to a wider audience, even selling Huntington’s coin collection to raise money for new acquisitions.

20120226-135916.jpg

Tourists from Spanish-speaking countries “make a beeline to come up there,” said Michael Mowatt-Wynn, the Society’s community outreach advocate. But New Yorkers and other U.S. tourists are far less likely to be aware of it. School groups make up half of the Hispanic Society’s attendance.

20120226-140142.jpg

The museum, which is entered through an elaborately decorated courtyard featuring Moravian floor tiles, averages only 20,000 visitors a year, down from about 50,000 annually in the mid-1950s.

20120226-140252.jpg

It is easy to walk past the museum tucked behind gates along Broadway’s bustling commercial strip because its landmark status prevents it from placing large signs on the facade.

20120226-140551.jpg

The museum’s neighborhood runs from 155th Street to above 190th Street and from the Hudson to the Harlem rivers. It was one of the last areas of Manhattan to be developed and was largely rural when the Hispanic Society opened in 1908 on land once owned by naturalist John James Audubon across from Trinity Cemetery, the burial grounds for New York’s social elite.

20120226-140642.jpg

Mowatt-Wynn said the museum became mired in the changing demographics and economic downturn that struck New York City in the late 1960s and 1970s.

To raise its cultural profile, it loans works to major institutions throughout the U.S., Europe and Mexico. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, for example, has 20 objects from the Society on display at its new galleries for Islamic art. The Society is collaborating with the Meadows Museum in Dallas for a Sorolla exhibition in 2013, and it recently loaned works to the Los Angeles Contemporary Museum of Art for an exhibition on Colonial Latin America.

“The more your works are seen in major exhibitions, the more people come to realize that we’re a major institution with major holdings,” said Codding.

“It’s bigger than anything anyone in the U.S. has in Spanish material,” he added.
