Zuffa lawsuit against WAND -Fixed fights

Post by stu3ufc on Wed Jul 29, 2015 1:49 pm

UFC sues Wanderlei Silva in Nevada court for 'Intentional Misconduct'

Wandy is back in the news, but not in a good way. Seems like the UFC has had enough and is taking the expressive, suspended fighter to court.

Sometimes you've had all you can take and you can't take anymore. It appears the UFC may have reached that point with its embattled, suspended MMA legend, Wanderlei Silva. The promotion filed suit against Silva in Nevada district court on Tuesday.

At the moment all we know is the case type: Intentional Misconduct. Electronic access to the complaint isn't currently available so we'll learn more of the nitty-gritty details as soon as a hard copy of the complaint is requested from the courthouse in Las Vegas.

It doesn't take a genius to infer that the UFC is likely going after Silva for any or all of the numerous accusatory statements he's made against the promotion while still technically being under contract, as his suspension for running away from a Nevada Athletic Commission drug test gets settled.

In fact, just six days ago UFC President Dana White gave a not-so-subtle Twitter hint ' ' that a lawsuit might happen. It's now official and we should learn more shortly.

They won't they will try to make an example out of him as warning to other fighters still in the rooster they say the UFC is not a dictator ship and slave contracts .

The zombies are going into the pride fc. Fights were all fixed thing big Time now what is ironic is they are giving wanderlei shit for saying fights are fixed without any evidence yet they automatically believe Gary goodridge who says pride was fixed without any evidence .

Lawsuit is obviously complete bullshit.

I think fka should sue stu, based on the Zuffa standards of litigation.

According to Zuffa's counsel "Plaintiffs seek 15 years of Zuffa's financial statements; balance sheets; regulatory filings; gate and merchandizing receipts from bouts, broken down by event, 'in as granular form as it is maintained'; revenues from broadcasts of bouts, broken down by event; advertising revenues, broken down by event; and revenues related to all MMA fighters, broken down by fighter, month and year, and itemized by revenue source and line item."

Yup.

Tho it will probly never go public,the info can be picked apart by plaintiffs and hopefully helps fuck zuffa.

Of course judge coukd just dismiss the case and all this is for not...

But keep fingers crossed ITS GODS WILL for zuffa to fall!!

If it is admitted as evidence it becomes public basically (part of the record of the proceedings), if I'm not mistaken.

Defendant's Motion to Stay [103] is DENIED. The parties are directed to meet and confer and submit a proposed form of Confidentiality and Protective Order, as well as ESI Protocols, within 30 days from today's date. The Court is going to impose restrictions on discovery while the District Judge considers the pending Motion to Dismiss, and periodic Status Conferences will be held. Plaintiffs' Counsel are encouraged to reconsider their broad discovery requests.



So does this mean that the UFC is going to have to now open up their books up to the world? No, not at all. But it does mean that the Plaintiffs will most likely be able to proceed with depositions, interrogatories and document discovery. That doesn't mean of course that everything will be ruled pertinent to the case. Nor does it mean that any of it will ever be made available to the public. (But there's always the chance.)

First it is worth noting that the court made it clear it is going to "impose restrictions on discovery" while considering the Motion to Dismiss. What exactly those restrictions will be wasn't made clear though. The Court also encouraged the Plaintiff's Counsel to "reconsider their broad discovery requests."

I read that article but I get the impression the writer doesn't know what the hell he's talking about. To put that differently, I get the impression he's an MMA writer.

Zuffa need to just fire Wand and let him do his own thing. I hope Wand wins the lawsuit and becomes the Snowden of MMA.

Ive talked with lawyers on another site who agreed with analysis but id agree that an mma writer might not be fully knowledgeable about legal matters.


Personally i hope it all gets leaked

Of course there has been fight fixing, just in a more complex way that many may have thought about. Whether wand comes up with the proof is questionable, but I believe with every fiber in my body that there have been numerous fight fixes already in the UFC

Without getting into specific fights, the stats suggest that fixed fights usually occur in fights inside the U.S as this statistical website suggests:

It's basically what I was saying years ago , that if fights will be fixed , it will be through the most ambiguous way , not through telling the fighters to take a dive.
