CB Dollaway, Kajan Johnson file lawsuit over low UFC fighter pay

A new lawsuit led by ex-UFC fighters C.B. Dollaway and Kajan Johnson has been filed in federal district court in Nevada against the UFC and the company’s primary owner, Endeavor Group Holdings.

According to Berger-Montague, one of the law firms representing the fighters, the new filing is similar to the ongoing class-action lawsuit led by fighters such as Cung Le, Nate Quarry, Jon Fitch and Kyle Kingsbury.

“The lawsuit filed by Johnson and Dollaway alleges that Zuffa violated antitrust laws by paying UFC fighters far less than they were entitled to receive and eliminating or hurting other MMA promoters,” representatives of the lawsuit said in a statement. “The class period ultimately proposed by the plaintiffs in the Le action closed on June 30, 2017. Plaintiffs Johnson and Dollaway bring this case on behalf of those like themselves who fought in a bout promoted by the UFC on or after July 1, 2017.”

Back in December 2020, Judge Richard F. Boulware, a U.S. District Court Judge for Nevada, indicated that the court would grant class certification to the fighters seeking damages against the UFC in the lawsuit previously filed. That would mean the number of potential plaintiffs would increase from the initial fighters named in the lawsuit to “all persons who competed in one or more live professional UFC-promoted MMA bouts taking place or broadcast in the United States from Dec. 16, 2010 to June 30, 2017.”

Dollaway always looks like he is smelling a fart.


I always imagine him as one of the socs from the outsiders. With some khaki pants, a madras shirt and a sneer on his face as he cruises by in his mustang.

Maybe this says more about me than CB?


Did he ever get paid for that elevator accident
