The team is led labour attorney Lucas Middlebrook by baseball agent Jeff Borris and economist Andrew Zimbalist. Here’s what the press release had to say. “PFA won’t just be a marriage of fighters, but it’ll be governed exclusively by fighters, but it’s the fighters who will control their own futures. The PFA has also obtained the support of the MLBPA, NFLPA, NHLPA, NBAPA and MLSPU. I have been blessed to represent elite athletes for almost 40 decades, and think more than ever in the benefits of collective bargaining to secure and improve terms and conditions of employment, That is why I fully support and encourage efforts of the fighters to organize a union to represent them.” Said current executive director Donald Fehr. In order to form a marriage UFC fighters are independent contractors and would need to challenge that standing.
