Today in a release, UFC officials announced they have retained the top New York-based Law Firm, Boies, Schiller & Flexner LLP.

The firm will defend the promotion against the class-action anti-trust lawsuit filed against them by former fighters.

Here’s the UFC’s official statement:

We have built a popular business from modest beginnings by meeting the needs of fans and fighters. Millions of people have watched our bouts, we have instituted leading health and safety measures for our athletes, and fighters are free to negotiate contract terms.

We will stand up against the plaintiffs in this litigation every step of the way, and have engaged attorneys from Boies, Schiller & Flexner LLP with a depth of experience in antitrust issues.

Bill Isaacson, our lead litigator, says, “The antitrust laws have long favored companies that create new products and services that consumers want. That is exactly what the UFC has done here through its long and substantial investment in building a popular sport.”

We are proud of the company we have built, confident in our legal position, and intend to prevail in this lawsuit.
