The group is headed by prominent baseball agent Jeff Borris, labor lawyer Lucas Middlebrook and economist Andrew Zimbalist. Here’s what the press release had to say. “PFA won’t only be a marriage of fighters, but it will be governed solely by fighters, but It is the fighters who will control their own futures. The PFA has also received assistance from NHLPA, NFLPA, the MLBPA, NBAPA and MLSPU. I’ve been privileged to represent elite athletes for almost 40 decades, and think more than ever in the benefits of collective bargaining to enhance and enhance terms and conditions of employment, that’s the reason why I fully support and promote efforts of their fighters to organize a union to represent them.” Said current NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr. UFC fighters would have to challenge that status in order to form a union and are independent contractors.
