    Very true as well
    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.

    Yes and no. It's not like there is any or should be any link between (for example) the CFLPA and the NFLPA, just because they are the same sport. The UFC is its own "league" and therefore would have it's own Union just for the UFC.
    The part about the agents, I don't really see an issue with. These guys are already taking a cut of the fighters' money...why not take a bit more!

    I listened to last weeks MMA Hour, that dude Borris was on there......worth a listen to hear what he is saying rather than the pieces picked out to make an article. He seems very bullish, but does seem to raise a lot of good points, and is willing to walk away tomorrow if there really is no call from the fighters to do this.

    Also, this stuff with the PFA seems strongly linked to the Diaz Bros to me, surprised the media are not picking up on this more.

    An update on the PFA.......

    PFA expects naming of fighter executive board to ignite next step in UFC unionization process

    Less three months after announcing its arrival, the Professional Fighters Association (PFA) is nearing the next step of its ongoing efforts to unionize UFC fighters.

    The organization, led by longtime baseball agent Jeff Borris and attorney Lucas Middlebrook, expects to announce an interim executive board comprised of nine current UFC fighters or veterans to lead the PFA "within the month," with the goal being to introduce the executive board during UFC 205 fight week in New York City.

    I think like everything else going against the UFC they will bury it in court for as long as possible....what ever happened to that suit that Fitch and company filed last year?

    Still on going....but I can't begin to imagine how much it is costing those guys

    This PFA one seems pretty much dead, they lost key people last week and with the new MMAAA coming out, this pone seems a dead duck.

    It is curious as to why the MMAAA has investors though.....seems like a bad idea from the get go if I'm a fighter
