    MMA fighters don't want to do what other athletes did before them in the big sports leagues. They rather just bitch about pay and hope something will magically change

    "I don't care Joe. I'll fight whoever they put in front of me next."

    Why do I only get 8/8?

    {<huh}

    IIRC, the MMAAA were talking a big game around the same time WME was setting up to purchase the UFC...

    They likely got paid to disband, hence why we haven’t heard a peep from this “union”.

    It died. Probably because of Bjorn.

    Good question. Alot of assumptions being contributed here. Ariels always sour with UFC, he may know what happened.
