New, comments

On Wednesday, legendary former UFC champion Georges St-Pierre, ex-Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney, and a group of four other fighters announced the formation of the MMA Athletes Association -- the latest effort to unite past and present UFC athletes under one banner in the fight to even the balance of power between the UFC and its fighters.

In a two-hour conference call, St-Pierre, alongside fellow board members Donald Cerrone, Tim Kennedy, Cain Velasquez, and T.J. Dillashaw, called upon UFC athletes to no longer be afraid of the UFC, and to join the MMAAA's fight and reach out with any questions they may have. Check out reactions to the big announcement below, including plenty of interest from active members of the UFC roster.
