Fighters Step Up Support for Muhammad Ali Expansion Act

Following news that the UFC have hired lobbyists to stifle the passage of the Muhammad Ali Expansion Act, the Mixed Martial Arts Fighters Association have stepped up their public stance in support of the legislation.

Today 48 individuals, along with MMAFA head Rob Maysey publicly signed their name to an op-ed letter supporting the legislation.

The full membership of the MMAFA is not publicly listed and perhaps most telling from this letter are the names involved with the Association including notable figures from the combat sports community such as Randy Couture, Mark Bocek, Sean Sherk, Mo Lawal, Maurice Smith, Matt Mitrione, Bill Goldberg, Ken Shamrock, Ben Askren, Josh Koscheck, Frank Shamrock and Wanderlei Silva.

The Bill is currently in two House of Representative Committees, namely the Committee of Education and the Workforce and the Committee of Energy and Commerce.

Notable MMAFA members such as Cung Le have been vocal on social media asking the public to contact representatives on these committees to voice support for the Bill.
