Sadly, is anyone surprised? These assholes will do anything to hold on to their power. It's all about Zuffa and no one else.

This is the closest Ali Act has ever been to MMA.  They are talking about applying Ali Act to all combat sports in the US.  That would be a big change to the MMA industry.  Maybe that's why Zuffa is looking sell.

They are also talking about a modified version of the Ali Act as a possibility. That may be a good option as well.

^There is a lot to it but basically it would end the way contracts are handled in MMA. Fighters would not be tied to an org. forever, there would be an independent sanctioning body to rank fighters, there would be world titles like in boxing, and much more. There are articles on MMA websites right now describing all the changes.

I think the most core provision is that a promoter is not suppose to simultaneously act as a manager.

It was basically anti-Don King legislation, if I'm not mistaken.

Love how UFC claims fighters are independent contractors yet force them to accept rules that make them employees and force them into exclusive contracts where they cant fight anywhere else

So if Bellator wanted to use a a UFC guy they could (as long as the fighter accepted) and vice versa?

No, they would still have contracts to promoters.

Sanctioning bodies would require some title fights and provide rankings so there would likely be cross-promotion.
