The UFC is more like Hollywood. It's show business not a regular job. It's the the music industry, it's flaky, flashy, fun, and over before you can blink, espcially for those who lose 1 too many fights. For most fighters it will never be a solid career. A union would hurt the biggest asset to it's Brand, it's exclusivity. Most people would say the UFC only has the elite fighters, a union would threaten that image. Competition is the only thing that will make the UFC re-evaluate how they pay their bottom guys. And that's going to take a long time to develop. But I do believe it's starting to happen, as you have more networks looking for their own MMA brand to sell.

"I don't call the fighting in my films 'violent', I call it 'action'. An action film borders between fantasy and reality. If I were to be completely realistic in my films, you would call me a violent, bloody man. I would simply destroy my opponent by tearing his guts out. I wouldn't do it so artistically." ~Bruce Lee
