Show Money 8: MMA Free agency, Conor McGregor co-promotions, and PBC’s decline

The Show Money crew is back to spew their sometimes educated and sometimes random theories on the only show exclusively dedicated to the business of MMA.

The Show Money crew is Paul (economist), Jason, (lawyer), and John (MMA insider and all-knowing guru). In today's episode, we talk about Bellator's possible business strategies in the market for MMA free agents and whether Ben Henderson's signing will have any effect on the UFC antitrust lawsuit. There's been talk lately that the value of Waddell & Reed's investment in Al Haymon's Premier Boxing Champions series has plummeted. We confirm this and discuss what it could mean. We also cover the power of Conor McGregor and the possibilities for co-promotion with the UFC in the future.

If you're interested in specific parts, we start with Ben Henderson's move to Bellator, the Premier Boxing section starts at 38:40, the power of Conor McGregor starts at 57:50, and at 1:20:25 we realize we forgot to discuss the effect of Ben Henderson's move to Bellator on the antitrust lawsuit.
