Law is a dirty game. Just from a cursory look at lawsuit there are things untrue & twisted. Not that other side's legal team won't do same.
Interesting note that one of the plaintiff's attorneys is Rob Maysey (@mmafa) who has been publicly pushing for a fighter's union for years.
Here's the class-action lawsuit filed today against UFC in US District Court
Today could very well be a watershed day in MMA history. Unfortunately it will take a lot of ugly, dragged-out legal action to find out.
Turned out ok! RT
Another pick for #Manziel. Cleveland sports hasn't seen debut this poor since Ricky Vaughn took the mound.
Grappling with Palhares: "I'm good ... I'm good ... I'm good ... I'm good ... F#%*!!!"
Also true RT
And a courageous effort by Stipe ... he did not back down from the "second" best HW
Even if you disagree with 49–46 (I do), you can agree ... courageous effort from JDS. Good on him. #UFC
49-46 for JDS? what?
There is a lot of courage on display in the UFC Octagon right now.
Stipe looks mostly out of gas. He needs to recover between rounds here. JDS is back in the fight. #UFC
The gauntlet has been thrown. Main event time. Who you got? #UFC
I gotta say, I never really saw Rafael dos Anjos coming. Wasn't impressed with his first few UFC fights in '08–09. He's come a long way.
See UFC fans, our sport isn't the only one that only sporadically enforces rules. #TravelMuch?
Jeremy Stephens mostly resembles a dude trying to free himself from a swarm of bees. Fend off one attack, the next follows.
Go big or go home. RT
Well, Davis Douglas weighed 169.6 for his lightweight bout at WSOF 16. Could've been worse, Nate.
That about covers it RT
#NateDiaz says FU to #Reebok uniforms, FU to
& FU to making weight lol hardcore #UFCPhoenix #UFC
So I'm very grateful to
for bringing up that humanistic side of fandom. I think it gets lost in the electricity of what MMA can be
The more you learn and hear about brain trauma, does it affect the way you watch? There's no question I have some conflict about it, too.
Some (many?) of us go through the same conflict at times. I love a lot about MMA, but damn, you have to have compassion for the athletes.
He said as he gets older and learns more about the damage fighters take in their career, it affects the way you view it.
Nearly lost in the recent Schaub/Rogan exchange was Rogan wondering how much longer he'd commentate, based upon his conflict of watching MMA
Started listening to the Rogan/Schaub conversation from yesterday. Riveting stuff. Couldn't have been easy for JR to say or BS to hear.
Good luck with the move RT
Today is my last day as a New York City resident.
Wow! Congrats! RT
Official: Robbie Lawler wins via split decision. New champion.
I picked Lawler in the rematch, who you got ? #UFC181
Who you got tonight? Pettis-Melendez? Hendricks-Lawler? Gimme Pettis & Lawler.
Missing UFC 181 tonight. Out with friends, say hello to
That's what's up. RT
Tie up bitch
Binge-listened most of
yesterday. Anybody else check it out? Pretty riveting stuff.
Re: UFC/Reebok deal, media should not determine rankings when it directly correlates to fighter pay. Period.
This is without a doubt THE highlight of 2014 in MMA
May your feasts be bountiful, your football exciting, your family tolerable & your hangovers mild. That about covers it. Happy Thanksgiving.
When you hear "arrested at a Taco Bell drive-thru," you know there's gonna be a great mugshot involved. Check.
This is an interesting story about how analytics shape the music you're hearing (and are going to hear in the future)
I love this conversation between Jerry Seinfeld & Wale
The time is ... not now.
UFC announces they'll have 45 events in 2015. So no pullback on schedule, as expected.
Fight culture mostly looks down on the practice, but coaches/trainers need to seriously think about their role in the corner past strategy.
In the wake of the report on Dennis Munson's death, here's a story I wrote last year on corners throwing in the towel
This GIF of Leslie Smith's ear exploding is absolutely gross but I know you'll click anyway
Just another example of how competition is great for the sport. So welcome to the party, revamped Bellator. Good night everyone.
This was probably the most fun night of MMA since Shogun-Hendo I and Chandler-Alvarez I were on the same night back in Nov. '11.
The Bellator jitters just got to Bonnar tonite. That's all.
And for his grand finale, Fabricio Werdum will thank fans in 47 different languages.
A UFC PPV done in less than 2 hours. Sweet. And just in time for Ortiz-Bonnar. Oh come on, you know you're watching!
A damn rough ending for Hunt's title quest. But good on Werdum, a onetime UFC washout who rededicated himself & revitalized his career.
Everything is stacked against him. But everything has been stacked against him, and he got here. One more rung of the ladder. #UFC180
If Mark Hunt wins ... most improbable UFC champ ever? Probably so. UFC didn't even want him. But short prep time, big weight cut, elevation.
Four straight first-round finishes on UFC 180 main card. What say you, Messrs. Werdum & Hunt? Big fellas ain't gonna go long, are they?
