    There was a period where you couldn't come to Sherdog without seeing pro union threads on every page. Now the topic has completely disappeared and few people even remember this 'PFA' nonsense. Was the PFA generating astroturf and paying posters to hype up the prospect of an MMA union?

    So, basically, you are telling us that there are topics that are hyped at some point and forgotten afterwards. Are you some sort of scientist? This is fundamental news.

    I'm happy about Bjork destroying this one, though. Thanks, Bjork. His involvement made it painfully obvious that the organizers had nefarious motives.

    Cowbow backed out.
    Cain doesn't fight.
    GSP probably backed out secretly to get his title shot at Bisping.
    Kennedy retired.

    That leaves Björn and Doug Funny who is a 90's cartoon.

    When part of your founding group had no idea what they had even signed up for you may have issues.

    but they didnt do anything besides meet up and have T shirts made

    WAMMA hired a whole staff of people, had offices, did big presentations, had a website etc

    But the biggest blow had to be Leslie Smith's departure.

    If WAMMA/AWWAM has more credibility than you, you know your organization sucks.

    ...

    And union propagandist @Not A Real Fan assured me shit was about to get real. Too bad.

    Obviously she was the keystone holding it all together. I thought it went without saying so I didn't mention.
