Read the full fighter antitrust lawsuit vs UFC

New, 135 comments

The antitrust lawsuit against the UFC has been filed, you can read the full document right here at Bloody Elbow.

We know far more about the lawsuit against the UFC as filed by fighters now, with the press conference currently taking place. We know that Cung Le, Jon Fitch and Nate Quarry are the fighters named on the initial suit.

The suit accuses the UFC of a lot of different aspects of anti-competitive behavior, ranging from sponsorship control to buying of competitors to the control of fighter likeness and name being required in perpetuity for any fighter that wishes to fight for the promotion.

You can read the full document that was filed at 12:45 p.m. Pacific Time by the fighters by clicking here (fair warning, a reasonably lengthy PDF).

We will have much, much more in the coming days and weeks, but you can read plenty of our reporting to this point by reading our Story Stream as well as our initial details of the lawsuit which can be read here.
