With the impending UFC lawsuit, fighters have been giving their take on the upcoming suit, discussing their beliefs on both the pros and cons.
Most recently, top ranked Bellator MMA light heavyweight King Mo gave his thoughts on the suit to BloodyElbow.
“I think it’s great and can help a lot of fighters. Some of the fans siding with the UFC are idiots. Why on earth would you get mad at fighters for wanting to make things better for other fighters? This isn’t about how successful the UFC is. This is about the treatment of fighters. If they can help the fighters’ quality of life better, it would ultimately make for better fights.
These guys are having to work extra jobs to put food on the table, having a hard time with a training camp because they can’t afford to miss work. The fans should be behind the fighters more than the organization. If this was the NFL, people would be ‘The players need to get paid more.’ In MMA, people are like, ‘Nate Quarry is just a disgruntled ex-employee.’ These guys are out there bleeding for the fan’s entertainment. They should be treated better.”
