The 30th of November, 2016 may well prove to be a pivotal day in the history of mixed martial arts.
During a conference call that was opened up to the members of the MMA media, several key figures in the sport made a stand against the UFC and their poor financial treatment of the fighters they call employees.
Georges St-Pierre, TJ Dillashaw, Cain Velasquez, Tim Kennedy and Donald Cerrone all stood alongside former Bellator MMA CEO Bjorn Rebney as they outlined their plans to form an association for mixed martial arts athletes in the UFC.
Each man had a chance to say their piece during the conference and after the preliminary announcement was made, the floor was then opened up for several questions from the various members of the media who were included.
A lot of interesting things were established throughout the course of the call’s two-hour runtime, and though the event was not made available to be streamed live as it happened, now it has been uploaded in full by MMAWeekly.com.
