A press conference will be held to formally announce the class-action lawsuit against the UFC by fighters tomorrow afternoon in California.

The previously reported class-action lawsuit to be filed against the UFC by fighters -- originally broken here at Bloody Elbow -- will be formally announced tomorrow afternoon.

The information was released via an e-mail sent out to select media members earlier today.

The announcement will be made at a press conference in San Jose tomorrow afternoon at 1 p.m. PT (4 p.m. ET). There was little by way of detail given in the e-mail beyond "A news conference to announce legal action by MMA professionals against the UFC. Plaintiffs’ names, news release and other details to be provided during the news conference. "

It isn't likely that all plaintiff names will be released at the press conference, but details on some of the involved fighters will be released as will other details.

Remember, you can read our original report on some of the details and initial reaction here.

And we will have much, much more tomorrow and in the coming days.
