GSP+BJORN REBNEY will make announcement Wednesday

Georges St-Pierre, Bjorn Rebney, former UFC champs to make MMA ‘re-defining’ announcement
by Marc Raimondi@marc_raimondi  Nov 28, 2016, 4:21pm EST


Esther Lin, MMA Fighting
A major MMA announcement is planned this week and the names involved are eye-opening.

Georges St-Pierre, former Bellator MMA promoter Bjorn Rebney and a handful of other well-known fighters will be making an "industry re-defining" announcement Wednesday on a media conference call, according to a press release sent out Monday.

Former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez, former UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw, Donald Cerrone and Tim Kennedy are the other names listed in the release and they will be part of the conference call.

When asked for more information by MMA Fighting, O'Malley Hansen Communications representative David Viggiano said all details are embargoed until Wednesday.

St-Pierre, Velasquez, Dillashaw and Kennedy are all represented by Creative Artists Agency (CAA), the chief talent agency rival to new UFC owner WME-IMG.

Kennedy and Cerrone have both been very public about their stance that fighters need a union. St-Pierre's negotiations with WME and the UFC for a return fight are currently deadlocked.

Rebney, who founded Bellator, has not spoken publicly since being let go by parent company Viacom in June 2014.

The conference call is scheduled for 4 p.m. ET.

Uh, isn't Bjorn the same guy who had pissing contests with his fighters over contracts? Isn't he the guy that got forced out of his company and almost no one missed him? I suppose you mean he won't treat fighters like shit because he'll run shows in indian casinos where there's no pesky drug testing. Nice to hear you declare war on the top two companies in MMA because that possibly can't go wrong.

Yeah .....

On every forum I've visited the meer fact that bjorn is mentioned in this has people gasping at how god awful this will be.


As long as fighters benefit i dont care who is involved to be honest.


Maybe bjorn can actually make an impact in mma ........most likely not lol.

http://www.mmanews.com/notable-mma-manager-on-bjorn-rebney-union-if-hes-in-im-out/


Malki Kawa is one of the more notable managers in mixed martial arts.

His ties run deep within Jackson-Winkeljohn MMA and other camps, including the likes of Jon Jones, Alistair Overeem and others under the First Round Management banner.


With talk of a big fighter union being announced Wednesday, Kawa sounded off on one notable name attached to it all: former Bellator president Bjorn Rebney.

“Lol if Bjorn rebney is in, I’m out,” Kawa posted on social media. “He was the most anti-fighter promoter I ever met. Contract worse than ufc, and he was a nightmare compared to ufc to deal with.”





First to speak out against bjorn LMFAO!!!!! MORE will surely follow....

Bjorn = bad for business.

Aside from union rumors and new league rumors heres a juicier one.....


THEY ARE GOING TO BUST THE UFC CONTRACTS WIDE OPEN!!(RUMOR)


When Georges St. Pierre and the UFC couldn’t come to terms in the fall, Georges hired James Quinn of New York firm Weil, Gotshal and Manges to help him walk away from his UFC contract. Quinn has won antitrust lawsuits against the NBA and NFL, and has also successfully defended major corporations like ExxonMobil and Vivendi Universal in nine figure litigation suits. In past comments regarding Georges’ UFC contract, he’s said “I don’t think the contract — that formal contract — is likely to stand up. Not in today’s world. It’s a pretty nice form of slavery.”

Who knows what exact laws Quinn thinks the UFC is violating, but we’re sure there’s a laundry list of potential attack points. There’s the UFC’s insistence that their fighters are independent contractors instead of employees. There’s conflict of interest claims since new talent agency owners WME-IMG have a terrible track record reaching deals with fighters managed by CAA. Then there’s the ultra-restrictive contract terms that see fighters giving away all their rights in perpetuity.

If Quinn is about to drop a legal bomb on the UFC that renders their fighter contracts null and void, it could lead to a mass exodus … possibly to a new league? One run by Bjorn Rebney? One that would operate under some sort of union-like structure where fighters get a set percentage of profits? In the end, Wednesday’s announcement could be one, two, or all three of the above possibilities. Or it could be none. We’ll let you know exactly what’s said on the conference call tomorrow.

Kawa is a UFC shill. I bet he was paid to post that.

Could this have to do with Aliance MMA, is my first thought.

I don't know where I read it, maybe google news, but they just went public as the first publicly traded MMA outfit (they are on Nasdaq).

Mixed Martial Arts Athletes Association announced by Tim Kennedy.  

GSP said there should be a 50/50 split of revenue with fighters but right now it is only around 8 percent.

GSP says even McGregor does not get his fair share.

GSP says the UFC will see him as a villain now.  He says this union is standing up for other fighters who are afraid of being fired or retired.

Cerrone is talking about how health care for fighters needs to be addressed.

The focus of the meeting was about UFC, not MMA in general, so it appears to be more like a UFC fighters union.

Well though its not an overall mma union if it is successful it will open the door for a union for other orgs personally or a joint union.

This could be big for the sport we shall see.
