UFC Statement on motion to dismiss

 
On February 27, the UFC filed a motion to dismiss the four virtually identical civil antitrust complaints filed against the company. We deny the plaintiffs' factual and legal allegations but they also fail to state any legal claim against the UFC.

While UFC vigorously contests the plaintiffs' characterization of the facts, a court deciding a motion to dismiss generally must accept the allegations as true. Even with that high legal standard, UFC's motion demonstrates that UFC competed in lawful ways that helped fighters and built UFC into a premiere organization in the sport of Mixed Martial Arts.

The UFC treats its fighters well, compensates them fairly, competes against other MMA promoters, and produces a product that is enjoyed by millions of fans around the world. We are confident in our legal position and expect to ultimately win this lawsuit.
