Bellator suing UFC to prevent access to documents in anti-trust suit
(mixedmartialarts.com)
In 2015 a class-action, anti-trust lawsuit was filed against the UFC. It is ongoing, and argues that the league crippled the market, and created an environment where fighters were unable to fight anywhere else. The suit accuses the UFC of running “an illegal scheme to eliminate competition from would-be rival MMA Promoters by systematically preventing them from gaining access to resources critical to successful MMA Promotions, including by imposing extreme restrictions on UFC Fighters’ ability to fight for would-be rivals during and after their tenure with the UFC.”

White makes return of GSP official, discusses opponents and divisions
(mixedmartialarts.com)
Former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre retired in 2013, citing the need to rest. He later expanded that to include concerns about doping in the league, among other points. On July 1, 2015, the UFC instituted what is arguably the toughest anti-doping program in the sports world. And it time negotiations for the return of GSP commenced but apparently broke down over apparel sponsorship. The UFC is wedded to Reebok, and GSP has a deal with UnderArmor. At one point things got so bad St-Pierre reported that he was a free agent, which the UFC firmly denied. By October, UFC president Dana White said the relationship between the two had never been better. But there was no contract. Now UFC President Dana White has told Lance Pugmire for the LA Times that it is official, and discussed potential opponents. “He’s back. I’m excited,” said White. “We worked at it for a long time and finally got it done.”
