All due respect, some misinformation in this post. Those desiring to organize UFC fighters need 30% of current fighters to sign an interest card. Once those signature cards are filed, the NLRB will perform an investigation to determine if UFC fighters are eligible. The big hurdle here is if the claim that fighters are incorrectly classified as independent contractors. Lets get that down for the lay person - 30% of fighters signup for a potential union, it will get the wheels turning and an official process begins. The obvious things to organize around are items that benefit all fighters, who universally have no advocacy. When Eddie Alvarez was sued by Bellator, his UFC promotional contract became public record. Northwestern University labor law professor Zev Eigen called it "the worst he's ever seen in sports or entertainment." Virtually every clause exclusively benefits the UFC without reciprocity. All fighters, top and bottom, will agree on basic fairness in the contract, including guaranteed fights, how and when you can be cut and better provisions for mutually ending the contract. All fighters will agree to a basic pension plan, health care and common sense improvements. Currently the UFC offers 1 economy hotel room and 1 economy flight per fighter. That means you get one coach/corner a ticket, everyone else you pay out of pocket to fly. Its absurd, but that is what they've gotten away with. Bet the house you can get 90% of fighters to agree to change this. When it comes to pay, especially as we inch away from the PPV model, getting a guaranteed cut of gross revenue will benefit the new guys and the stars alike. Same goes for being able to finally negotiate likeness rights and sponsorship deals - ESPECIALLY for the more prominent fighters.
