    Gotta give the Fertittas credit, they knew exactly when to cash in their chips and bail.

    In a ghetto, man.
    It's only as powerful as the fighters in it. So it's still irrelevant.

    lets see what happens - the key is to get a lot of people involved, and its not going to be easy - zuffa will still bea minority share owner and they are not novices when it comes to this stuff

    I asked this question in another thread but didn't get a response. What could a union do for fighters, besides preventing a stupid deal like the reebok one?

    Most union deals hurt the people who stand out at the top and help the ones who are dragging down the bottom and bring little or no change to the ones in the middle. Less money for Conor, less fighters getting cut for being shit and streamline pay in the middle.

    Yup, just like the NFL NBA and MLB. As soon as they were collectively bargaining the games started to suck and the leagues tanked.

    1. It was the 11th, YESTERDAY
    2. Did you seriously miss the numerous threads about it since YESTERDAY
    3. There was already the MMA Fighters Association


    oh

    4. They are probably going to get sued by the UFC by using an octagon in their logo (UFC own trademarks to octagon cage, octagon mat, and octagon logo)

    It will be a long & slow road for development. UFC is the strong arm & will cash favors for those that don't join & dish out sh*t to anyone who does.

    Or now that they are no longer involved, it's safe to do without the chance of a desert burial
