UFC exec Lorenzo Fertitta on potential fighters’ union: “That’s up to them”

To unionize or not. Lorenzo Fertitta says it’s up to fighters.

This past Saturday at UFC Fan Expo 2010, the UFC executive said
collective third-party representation – an issue that’s long shadowed
the sport’s explosive rise to popularity – is not under his company’s
domain.

“We have no role,” Fertitta said. “So we’re not in a position to say we
support it, or we’re against it. That’s entirely up to [the fighters].”
