Union petititions FOX to drop UFC

by FCF Staff | source: fcfighter.com

Local 226, the union outfit that has been waging war against UFC parent company Zuffa, LLC, has formed an online petition calling for FOX to abandon its multi-year agreement with UFC that will kick off on Nov. 12 with the live UFC event headlined by a long-awaited heavyweight showdown between champion Cain Velasquez and top contender Junior Dos Santos.

The union, which derives its motivation in the battle from the fact that Zuffa majority owners Lorenzo and Frank Fertitta also own Station Casinos, a non-union shop in Las Vegas, launched UnfitForChildren.org.  The website points to comments it deems homophobic and male chauvinistic on the part of UFC President and minority percentage owner Dana White as well as UFC talent.

who cares? the streams are getting less choppy with every passing event. Fox has about as much leverage as a pair of testicles at an MMA drugs convention.

The problem with people signing the petition to post reason why they are against it is that there names are on the list of the petition....it gives the culinary union power by saying they have collected over 500,000 names, even if over half of them are signing it just to make fun of the union.Just ignore these idiots.
