The team is led economist Andrew Zimbalist, labour attorney Lucas Middlebrook and by notable baseball agent Jeff Borris. Here is what the press release had to say. “PFA will not just be a union of fighters, but it will be governed exclusively by fighters, but It is the fighters who will control their own futures. The PFA has also obtained assistance from NHLPA, NFLPA, the MLBPA, NBAPA and MLSPU. I’ve been privileged to represent elite athletes for nearly 40 years, and think now more than ever in the benefits of collective bargaining to enhance and improve terms and conditions of employment, that’s the reason why I fully support and encourage efforts of the fighters to organize a union to represent them.” Said NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr. So as to form a union, UFC fighters are independent contractors and would need to challenge that standing.
