New, 2 comments

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

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

The Show Money crew is Paul the economist, Jason the lawyer, and John the man who knows everyone and everything in MMA.

In today’s episode, the guys discuss some of the disclosures from newly unredacted antitrust filings - many of which are not a good look for the UFC - the delayed Endeavor IPO, Zuffa Boxing, and the recent Luke Thomas video on the UFC and monopsony.

For those interested in specific parts, here are the start times for each segment:

  • Newly unredacted antitrust filings - 00:51
  • Delayed Endeavor IPO and Zuffa Boxing – 38:10
  • Luke Thomas video and UFC as monopsony – 51:25
