3. Shown No Interest in Working With the UFC

Earlier this week, Bjorn Rebney let it be known that they have no intention of reaching out to the UFC, or working with them in any capacity.

“Our structure and what we’re doing, and our plan of attack, does not include us reaching out to the UFC. It includes the implementation of strategies that are designed, and have been designed over the last two years, to achieve a very specific set of goals. And those strategies, I think, will be very effective in achieving those goals. And at some point, I’m quite comfortable our phone will ring.”- Stated Rebney on the conference call.

If the organization has no plans to reach out to the UFC, or work with them in any capacity, then the only reasonable conclusion to draw is that they are coming in with an adversarial approach. They have made it clear that the UFC is the enemy, and they are not willing to negotiate. Imagine if a union had that same approach?
