The UFC Athlete Retreat 2017 was supposed to be a way for UFC fighters to meet its new owners, WME-IMG. It was meant to establish a family-like relationship between UFC fighters and WME. Ever since the Athlete Retreat, it seems like the relationship between the UFC and it’s fighters has gotten even worse. UFC fighters are still complaining about lack of pay and respect. Free agents are still leaving the company and others are simply retiring. More fighters than ever are out of control (Conor, Volkan, Werdum, Colby) getting into trouble inside and outside the cage. Thoughts?
