A Face-Punching Legal Battle
"The ufc has an overwhelmingly dominant position as the biggest promotional organization that runs fights in mixed martial arts. It likely made close to a billion dollars in revenues last year. And that's estimated to be as much as ninety percent of all the revenues in mixed martial arts and it achieved that dominant position both by successfully managing and promoting the sport but also by buying out all of its biggest rivals in getting all of those top fighters from its rivals to fight for it. So you have. These numbers are not public but these estimates come from nash analyzes the business and finances of mixed martial arts for the website. The bloody elbow. He's our guide to this world and is the lawsuit filed by the former fighters against the ufc has unveiled all these documents. That show what the fighters get paid. We had an inkling. We had an idea but now we have like concrete numbers. Okay so here. Are some of the points made by the fighters and here are some of the. Us's agreements i the fighters argue that they simply get paid a much smaller share of the ufc's revenues than athletes and other major sports leagues. And this is true. Those new documents from the court hearing revealed that fighters get paid roughly twenty percent or less of ufc revenues in a given year for the major basketball baseball hockey and football leagues athletes. Get paid close to half of what they're leaks make and in boxing the other major combat sport. It's even higher close to sixty percent of boxing. Revenues goes to boxers. And one of the reasons john says is it. There are several major. Boxing promoters trying to sign fighters it's just a more competitive market so for the fcc. The fighter has to pitch to the of c. To hire him to give them a fight because he needs to be in the afc to make money were in. Boxing promoter has to find a fighter and convince him to let him promote them. Because he's the person drawing the money in response to the fighters. Ufc's arguing that even though it's fighters getting smaller share of its revenues. Those fighters are still getting paid more money over time because the ufc is making more in revenues over time so the overall level of the fighters pay is still going up and john says if the us seaward some other kind of company that response might be enough to win the case if the fighters are just like other workers and their pays going up. Why would it matter. If the fighters are getting a smaller share of the sports revenues than the athletes in other sports. What makes this case different honest with the plaintiffs argue is that the fighters aren't workers like a typical worker on a factory line. The fighters are the product and as the product. That's being sold. They deserve a share of the sales. Dmc has also argued that nick martial arts is still a young and growing sport should not be compared against established. Sports leagues plus. Dear makes the case that a big reason it makes so much. Money is not because of how great it's fighters are because of how good the you have c. is at putting on big lucrative fight nights that effectively. Ufc has a special ingredient that it adds to its fight cards john. Nash is a little skeptical of this one. But what is the special sauce is a little confusing. When of would claim it's their production. It's the way they things but then can you be more specific because you know. Boxing does the same thing they they promote fighters they put on events they they make packages that you know all that stuff that seems to be part of the special sauce is done by other other promotions plus john says if the ufc does have a special sauce and the specific fighters don't matter too much. Then why did the ufc go to such lengths to buy out its rivals and get their fighters and why does the ufc put restrictions in the fighters contracts that prevent them from fighting for other promotional companies. Look there's lots of other complexities in this lawsuit. For example the ufc also makes its fighters except the sponsorship deal with reebok and keeps a lot of the money from that deal the fighters say they could get their own sponsors which they used to be able to they would get paid more but really we're just scratching the surface here on this lawsuit and it probably has a long way to go anyways. But what is clear is that the lawsuit is a fight. About worker power the former fighters say they lost power to negotiate their pay because a ufc made the market for their talent less competitive the ufc disagrees and has argued that it should not be punished for being a successful company by the way we emailed a spokesperson for the ufc about the lawsuit. They have not yet responded. What's also clear right now. Is that the financial life of a lot of you. Have fighters is really hard fighters who are not highly ranked will sometimes get as little as ten thousand dollars for a fight and finders will have at most a few fights a year and they pay a big share of their earnings to their fight camps. The places that run their training and provide coaching things like that and so these former fighters are basically suing the ufc for what they believe they are owed what they argue they would have made if the ufc had allowed a competitive market for their services. Nate quarry one of these x. fighters says they're also hoping that the ufc has to change. Its approach to paying fighters going forward. We deserve our seat at the table. Whether it's talking about sponsorships whether it's negotiating our purses whether it's being able to fight for someone else free agency that's what we truly need in the sport where the fighters will have the ability to really test out the free market and see what our values this episode of the indicator was produced by jamila huxtable.

"The long awaited day is finally here and for those of you who have been listening and following the podcast and stay one. You know that joe inga bronx firefighter has come an enormously along way to be toned up at the starting line today in six months he has figured out how to navigate eating plan strong wrong and staying plan strong in what i would consider the most hostile environment on the planet which is a firehouse where he is surrounded rounded by foods that are off plan accrue guys who are less than enthused about his food choices so i've gotta give joe major major kudos it has been super exciting to cochin and watched joe from the sidelines as he's grown and matured and and now ultimately decided to own this plan strongly style now before i share the actual triathlon with you today today. I want to invite you to drop in on a recent conversation that i had with a plan strong brother. His name is james lightning lightening wilkes and he and i talk about protein and specifically what this lifestyle does and eating this way <hes> <hes> can do to fuel your performance and i think it will help explain to you a little bit why joe and for all of you at home why you're able to do a a triathlon a five k. a. marathon and recover so well for those of you that don't know james is the producer of the much anticipated upcoming film the game changers it is gonna launch <hes> globally in over two thousand theaters on monday a september sixteenth and it is going to be nothing short of a game changer. James is a former m a fighter later turn plant strong crusader and as you're going to see in the film he discovered the truth about plants while he was recovering from two you need injuries that took him out of the ring for several months and what he learned launched him on a quest to expose the most dangerous myth on the planet and in the process james has become one of the greatest experts on protein and the power of plants in the world. Let's listen in. I think that <hes> one of the things that you address. It's probably the primary thing is what i think you you guys have dubbed the world's most dangerous myth what is the world's most dangerous myth well. I think the underlying with the most dangerous myth is real men eat meat. There's there's all these myths above that you need me for protein or too strong strong to be healthy but especially in that male demographic that real many meet methods is really strong. <hes> <hes> and i mean you look at your her year. Background is mixed martial artists. <hes> probably one of the most masculine subliminal you know face to face combat sports and here you are you you get injured and now you go on the search for the truth and nutrition following. I think some of the principles that you learned from from bruce lee right exactly i mean you know he was always in search for truth and combat which i was on the same path right and his philosophy was research experience absorb what is useful reject what is useless and add what is specifically around raleigh just listening to and this is what i used to do as a listen to what was written about in bodybuilding magazines fitness magazines or online you really got to cut through all of that and start looking at the research wjr and when you look at the research is really quite clear. Especially in the last ten to fifteen years has been a better understanding of the components that are in animal foods that are bad for you and the components plant foods that are beneficial <hes>. It's really very clear that are applying based is optimal not just the health but also athletic performance. I think one of the one of the great saying i heard originally from you was to drop the the bro science right that you're going to hear at the g._m. Yeah you're gonna hear all sorts of stuff at the gym but that's just again stuff people have read online and then <hes> perpetuated in the gyms so what what's bro science. What are some of the things that these guys in the gyms are are being told well one of the biggest things obviously is you know how much protein you need but more specifically it's like weady protein protein from and there's this really strong myth and this pro science that you have at protein from animal foods whereas in reality you know all protein originates implants can't animals are just the middleman and basically animals are doing you a disservice. They're taking all of those beneficial nutrients that you could be getting and in return giving you all of these inflammatory molecules so it's all about the package right you can get protein in animal foods. You can get a protein implant foods the original source but the package which it comes with fiber fell late <hes> these antioxidants versus an animal foods. You've got these inflammatory compounds like <hes> t._m._a. Oh and agee's new five g. All these things that it was fun to learn about these lost sort of ten fifteen years in the literature heme iron he mind yeah exactly you say him. I say him <hes> yeah so we're starting to realize that even the he minded self is inflammatory and even the animal protein protein the amino acid profile of animal foods is also yeah. I think what is so fascinating to me. Is that in america erika. We've had the discussion about good fats bad fats. We've had the discussion about good carbs. You know kinda bad carbs but really what's never been put on. The table is good protein. Bad protein is just like well protein. You can't get enough of it. The only way to get it is from animal products vary products and it's like that's why to me. It is truly the world's most dangerous myth because everybody's convinced that you know if <hes> if i don't get enough protein amana wither up i'm adine ivine <hes> or i'll be hospitalized for protein deficiency in you. I mean you you guys delve into that in a beautiful a film it's not just the protein is when you start eating like that. You're reading obviously animal foods which are the leading cause of of death in this country in the western world up primarily due to what people are eating so it's not just the proteins that package and everything that people are eating so the leading cause of death in the western world a priority caused by what people eat right and so it's killing more people than anything else and it's also really bad for the planet and also you'll the animals also dying as well so it really is the world's most dangerous man i could not be more excited about the game changes film. I know it is going to move the needle and helping people wake up to what is marketing hype in what is factual actual if you think about joe and the overhaul that he has done in his life the idea of training for any athletic feat seemed virtually impossible people at the beginning of his journey he had zero energy he had tried and failed numerous times to adopt a regular fitness regime in the the past but he would either injure himself or he be so sore for a week or more that he would then abandon the idea and move on but during our time together he was able to consistently put one foot in front of the other and his fuel source was so clean and plan strong long that he has not had any setbacks along the way and his recovery time has been accelerated immensely so when thinking about joe's joe's experience. I want you to now imagine professional athletes. If joe can train and get stronger in recover faster while on a plant strong diet just think what that could mean for these professional athletes well wait until you see the game changers because we show on on the big screen real impactful and visual results with some pretty reluctant experimental subjects including pro football players yes and with my help a group of new york city firefighters from brooklyn. Now let's turn this over to james and hear what he he has to say about what he's learned about blood circulation and how it's affected by what we eat you another thing to me. That was so brilliant about the way you laid out. The game changers was what you did with these n._f._l. Athletes the receivers for the at the time the miami dolphins and you were able to show again what can happen with with your blood in just after eating a a meat vate meat-based meal versus a veggie based meal <hes> <hes> can you talk a little bit about that. Show i mean so that you can draw the blood offer meal and separate it out using a centrifuge and it's called post-prandial post-prandial i._p. May which means fat in the blood after eating and you can really see a difference when the when there's not much fat in the blood is sort of looks like olive when he separated out and when they found the blood it looks much more like elmer's glue in so <hes> so once translucent right and when you can't see exactly and so with the animal animal based foods you can see within an hour or so and then getting locked up for six or eight hours you can see that the the plasma in the blood when you separate out the red blood cells from the plasma very cloudy and when the happens reducing endothelial function. It's been up to fifty percent on ultrasound. You're going to see reduction of the arteries on dilating openness much which means less blood which that oxygen must nutrients to the muscles and all the organs in the body so you just not functioning as well right the plant based meals. Don't have that effect in the doctor that helped you. That was dr robert vogel. Who's the co. Chairman woman is the coach of the cod clues <hes> committee on cardiovascular health right right. I mean again incredibly powerful scene and i'm just will open up. I think people's is tremendously another thing that we did and this was utilizing myself as we went into a firehouse firehouse right right in <hes> in new york city and i think we had about thirty five thirty five new york city firefighters and we wanted to show them what what happened with their weight their blood pressure and their lipid panel in just seven days right. I mean you've been getting those results over and over again right outside of that just keeps each replicating itself. You go plant based for a week during this whole plant based foods and you're seeing a drop in allie-allison you're dropping total cholesterol improved blood blood pressure dropping triglycerides. It's you know so if you didn't if the experience hasn't been done and it hasn't been tested you would think it's almost unbelievable to happen in such a short short period of time. It's amazing how your body has the ability to heal itself and much better when you're putting in the right fuel. So why did you in. Joseph and louis decide that doing this with a bunch of firefighters would be good for the film. I think it's a great group of rio brioni meet with you know like we talked about before and you know so firefighters athletes soldiers those types of people that traditional additional sort of male role models and so we thought it'd be a good group and you. You are <hes> going out to that talking. Put him on that trial a great thing to film and i think it it worked out really well yeah yeah well. I was honored to be part of it. Thank you for that

"And there's a bunch of people who still think being homosexuals, I sin among other things. So this world ain't ready for that they're not like we might be ready for it as a community. But on a larger scale, and it's the one thing and it's like I you know, I hate when I hear people say, gays the new black because it's not as not the new black black is black gazers gay. And you can't call it the new black. Because if you're gay, you can choose to not come out, right? And it's a world of fear that we've created for the homosexual community, and they don't wanna come out because they don't wanna be ridiculed. That's why a lot of them hide it for so long. But they have that ability to do, so we don't as why would just black and you see you like when they see us. Black people. It's two different struggles. And we need to empathize with each other struggle, we don't need to down another person's struggle that being said, there's a reason why we don't see athletes entertained like a ton of air tastes. Like there's some crazy as entertainment. I see a lot of gay openly gay and successful people. It depends on what level it is. Right. Because there's still I guarantee you there are still a lot of people who have not come out there. There are a lot live in fear that, that's fair. I'd be working in news, like so many producers who are openly gay like Mel producers. I'd say you're hard pressed to find straight ones in the news industry newsroom, a lot of them are gay males and they're like out in gay, and then I was like, oh, is this thing in, you know, in news television when I got into the industry. No. Like there was just like there is just like an influx. I don't know what. But I was like, okay, cool. That's dope. And then people, I know if you look at entertainment as a whole, like, you know, like the easy news that this that, like entertainment movies all this stuff. It seems like there's a lot more acceptance or maybe they just bogarted it to fuck out of, you know, I'm being out in proudly and openly gay or trans, or whatever it may be end. I just feel like combat sports is on the opposite. Like if this shit is a snake movies and television or the head of the snake combat. Sport is past the tail combat sport is the skin shed left in the background somewhere. We what we, we see Mander noon is we won. We only see openly, lesbian. Yes, not even trades. So like lesbian. We see lesbian couples MMA boxing conduct. I mean, you know, basketball stuff like that. But openly gay, males..

The the argument I had was over all over body shots. Somebody was talking about body shots, and my main boxing, I was trying to go into the difference with body shots. And I'm a man and boxing is that in boxing, you have a more sustained body attack. You don't you don't have as much of a sustained body attacking because guys get closer, you can grab you know, Can you can. the instinct is to lock up. You know what I'm saying? And then you wind up on the floor whatnot. So the body attack is more sustained than boxing because you can get a guy in your ass or fight rep it to your liver, and and you know, you can't lock up because the wrestling would just break you, and they'll go back to you. So you're pissing blood. Not the you're not pissing blood. And it may take a bed kick to your liver. Of course.

"Did you direct path to be able to truly protect yourself a violent situation? That's not denigrating combat sports and martial arts people. They're amazing athletes. I work with a lot of them. But if we just think about it for a minute, what makes a combat sport like a mixed martial arts match or a martial art that has competition. What makes it so fun to watch? And it comes down to the rules. And if you're gonna look at violence, and you're gonna game by violence how how can you game violence? What's the most important thing when you have to take deliver injury the human body out of the equation, which is the exact information that you need if your life on the line because you don't want to compete with somebody you want to make sure you can shut them down immediately. And the problem is when the UFC the last time they have thirty one rules twenty seven of the rules outlawed injury to the human body. And that basically just tells you the difference you I don't. Don't you have to decide why you're training? If you're training your own self protection than you wanna make sure that you go direct to injury of the human body in very very few people and systems can correctly teacher that information. I show is called. Nobody told me, and we always ask our guests. What is your nobody told me lesson? So what is it that? Nobody told you about self defense that you had to learn on your own. And that you kinda wish someone had told you. That the best way to learn is actually cooperative not competitive training. Meaning. The best information comes from modeling information. Like, we know like in in, you know, if you really trying to improve yourself in any skillset early shape or form oftentimes slow deliver training is getting the best methodologies. I'll give you an example shooting. They have a mantra the mantra is slow is smooth smooth is fast. And I used to think when I grew up originally some combat sports, I learned most of my training was very ballistic. It was very fast. It was very chaotic when it came down to learning how to really protect myself in this. I got this originally when I was trained in the field teams, you know, the first part of training and the Phil teams as all physical. They just it's usually stuff and most of people see when they see films that guys running around boats on their heads wet sandy miserable getting yelled at what they don't show often times is the next as a training while it was the next phase the training when I went through which was weapons and explore. Houses when you get to weapons and explosives the instructors aren't yelling and screaming. They aren't going crazy. They aren't doing anything. Ballistic everything is slow methodical and calm.

I've been covering combat sports time since two thousand six I was actually doing a lot of takeout general assignment investigative pieces at that time and our boxing writer at the time. Steve Springer had the opportunity to write Oscar de LA Hoya is book. And so Steve was in a conundrum where he couldn't be beholden, or at least have the appearance of being beholden to a major fight promoter. Yet. He wanted to be involved in a major life altering. To be able to write a book what a great honor. So Steve made the decision. Hey, I'll stay and work some general assignment capacities and do that. But I'll step away from the boxing beat. And that was my window to jump through. Really? And and I think that at that same exact time the sports editor at the time. Randy Harvey had made the decision to cover the ultimate fighting championship. So is basically the combat sports be became something. At that time, thanks to Randi.

I mean, another sports editor Mike James had decided around two thousand twelve someone left.

You have to pick your battles. What am I going to emphasize in the bigger fights? Obviously as what takes precedence you have to decide k a Floyd, Mayweather, Manny packages fighting. You're gonna have to get someone else to cover hockey, even though we may be in the playoffs because those fights Trump a first round playoff game. Always the first fight you ever covered. I find ever covered actually was Shane Mosley. Oscar de LA Hoya one at Staples. And the times needed day, basically just needed some help..

"combat sport" Discussed on Order of Man: Protect | Provide | Preside
"You've been doing in practicing jujitsu for six years or so. I remember after that first class, man, I was exhausted. I was beat up. I was exhausted. I was certainly humbled, but at the same time, there was something deep down inside of me that drew me into wanting to go again and wanting to be in those situations. And I think what a lot of guys will do is they'll think to themselves if ever I'm in an encounter with a violent situation that all miraculously be able to handle myself. But it's been said that we don't rise to the level of our expectations. We fall to the level of our training. And so there's so much to be said for training for understanding what violence actually looks like placing yourself in situations that expose you to it to some degree in controlled environments. I guess it's kind of like that warrior in a garden type scenario, right? If you'd rather have the skills and not need them than need them and not have them. Absolutely. Unfortunately, in a four, a lot of men that are out there in today's society. The reason that they don't purposely put themselves in these uncomfortable situations and you know, it doesn't have to be jujitsu. It can be any type of Neil combat sport or martial arts is because they are allowing their their ego, which is very large to control what they actually want a complete in the slice in as you. And I know you know the life that we have on this floating rockers fairly short into not understand or to not ever get to that human potential of what you're capable of. You know, in in my eyes is just a shameful. But again, it comes down to people not being humble enough to put themselves in situations where you have as you probably found out. There's dudes that are probably. I have your size, they're able to choke you out just because of that consistency of going to jitsu of learning with timing, not necessary, you know, not necessarily strength, just timing, good technique in that. Just, you know, going there day after day week after month year after year, you know, getting beat up in still coming back for more for the specific type of man. It definitely takes that type of individual to wanna come back and basically pay to get beat up. Yes, that's true because I talk with my father-in-law about some of the Spartan races and things that I do, and he's like, why would you pay to go do that? And for me, it's it's not necessarily about a return on investment or losing money in these types of things. It's just putting myself deliberately uncomfortable situations. And one of the things that I'm most fascinated with, as I begin this exploration into jujitsu is believable of calmness and clarity in these guys who. Been practicing for years and decades and just how cool and collected they are. And yet they have the ability to inflict some real damage on another person.
