What was it Navi used to say? HEY! LISTEN!
If you’ve got two hours to kill, go ahead and check out the full audio replay of today’s (Weds., Nov. 30, 2016) media conference call with former Bellator boss Bjorn Rebney and ex-Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight titleholder Georges St-Pierre.
That’s where you’ll get the whys and wherefores of the newly-formed Mixed Martial Arts Athletes Association (MMAAA), which plans to go after UFC and force a massive financial settlement, all while terraforming the combat sports landscape into something more habitable for the next generation of cage fighters.
Also taking place in today’s big announcement, which comes just three months after a similar movement was started by sports agent Jeff Borris, were former UFC champions Cain Velasquez and T.J. Dillashaw, along with active fighters Tim Kennedy and Donald Cerrone.
Expect much more from this new endeavor in the coming days.
