Welcome back to the Fight Business Podcast, Patrick Auger’s show dedicated to the business-side of mixed martial arts.
In this episode, Auger discusses a wide range of topics including growing support for the Ali Act in MMA and how a changing senate could help push this through.
Judge Boulware is now expected to unseal all documents in the UFC antitrust lawsuit and that could change everything for the UFC.
