MMA fighters should have the same rights & protections as other professional athletes. The Muhammad Ali Boxing Reform Act is a federal law that was enacted 17 years ago to protect boxers from exploitation, eliminate conflicts of interest, and increase integrity in the sport. The Ali Act should also include Mixed Martial Artists.
Mixed Martial Artists should be treated like professional boxers. Fighters should have the right to know how much money a promotion is making from an event. Fans should have the right to see the best possible fights through independent rankings. Fighters should have the right to compete in a professional sport free of conflicts, coercion, restraints and exploitation!
Our bill, the Muhammad Ali Expansion Act, is now pending in Congress, H.R. 44! https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/44/.
Support fighters and help us ensure passage of the Muhammad Ali Expansion Act! Proceeds received from the sale of these shirts will be used to fund trips to Washington D.C. so fighters can tell their stories directly to Congress!
Stand with fighters and support our efforts! #MMAFA #AliAct2MMA #fight4fighters #uniteFightchange.
