Donald Cerrone Calls For Fighter Union, Says He’ll “Headline” Organization
By FCF Staff
There’s been a lot of talk in recent weeks about a fighter union, and not only does Donald Cerrone support the idea, “Cowboy” says he’ll help lead the organization.
Since the UFC was sold earlier this year for a reported $4 billion dollars, several high profile fighters have called for the creation of a union. While speaking on the BMF Ranch Podcast, here is what Cerrone reportedly had to say about the issue (quote via FloCombat):
“We laugh…so close, fighter union here we come,” Cerrone said. “I’ll headline it. I’m with you guys. We need the union. I’ve said this many times, and I think we need strong fighters and popular fighters that headline and let everyone know that we need–not only better pay–but we need dental, we need medical and what happens if we get hurt? Where is your 401K? Where is anything? Every other sport in the world has a union.”
Cerrone is scheduled to fight Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 205, November 12th.
