But, Lorenzo takes them!- Everyone @EveryUFCFighterOnTheRoster.

Did the fighters bargain for the UFC's increased authority to suspend?  To test?

During the press conference, Ike Epstein did allude to the fact that, as independent contractors, they would have to get revised promotional agreements. 

Is this just going forward or for all athletes under contract? 

Was this change bargained for?

More stringent testing for PEDs is called for--penalties not negotiated or previously agreed to is problematic.  Is the UFC again treating its "independent contractors" as "employees.?"

Absolutely nothing is finalized...... or even close



 



They have to figure out how theyd legally have jurisdiction to punish over 500 fighters on the roster that live in 45 different countries (and would all need to sign new contracts). 



 



They need to figure out who will do the testing and who would punish the fighters if they fail



 



They need to figure out how long the suspensions would be and if thered be fines



 



 



 



They had a press conference basically saying "we have a lot of shit to do and theres a very good chance it wont all happen...... ever"
