    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    This one here seems to be exactly that IMO, no fighters attached at all yet, makes mentions only of the UFC.........they've seen the sale and fancy a piece of that pie.

    It is more than likely inevitable, but not for a little while yet

    The 2 unions wanting to "protect" fighters can't even get on the same page:

    The PFA is a separate effort from Rob Maysey’s MMAFA which has advocated for a players union for some years. In an interview with Matt Connolly for Forbes, Maysey was not impressed that the PFA is run by agents, announced its formation without ever contacting the MMAFA, and is focused solely on the UFC.

    “We would have expected, if their effort was to organize fighters and to bring about changes in contract structure and independent rankings, that they would have reached out,” said Maysey. “That has not happened yet, but we anticipate that it’s going to happen. Ideally, we all come together in one organizing committee. Any group that does not take that approach … we question their motives.”

    “We stress to all of our guys that successful association efforts cannot be led by agents. They suffer from two irreconcilable conflicts: The first being that agents view all things, necessarily and appropriately, through the lens of their clients. That’s conflict one. Conflict two: agents compete with each other vigorously, and are going to have a difficult time getting other agents to join such an effort.”

    The MMAFA has a couple good points there about the PFA
