The group is led by baseball agent Jeff Borris, labor attorney Lucas Middlebrook and economist Andrew Zimbalist. Here is what the press release had to say. “PFA will not just be a marriage of fighters, but it will be governed solely by fighters, It is the fighters that will control their own futures. The PFA has also received the support of NHLPA, NFLPA, the MLBPA, NBAPA and MLSPU. I have been privileged to represent elite athletes for nearly 40 decades, and believe now more than ever in the benefits of collective bargaining to secure and enhance terms and conditions of employment, that’s the reason why I fully support and encourage efforts of their fighters to organize a union to represent them.” Said current NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr. In order to form a union UFC fighters are independent contractors and would need to challenge that status.
