Pepperdine Graziadio Associate Professor of Economics Paul Gift, PhD, writes in Forbes about an antitrust lawsuit filed against the UFC by former fighters. Dr. Gift covers the class-action lawsuit as it transitions from the discovery stage into the expert stage. Notably, the plaintiffs made a last-minute motion to obtain financial documents from boxing promoter Top Rank and depose its president Bob Arum. Dr. Gift notes that this motion might be more about damages, and he assesses what the fighters might end up claiming.
