ESPN’s E:60 show tackles the question: Is the UFC’s strategy of bulling, blocking, buying their completion make them a monopoly. Featured in the clip legendary UFC fighter Ken Shamrock sure thinks so:
“The UFC has gone out and strategically bought out every company or they cut the knees out from underneath them when they tried to get started by putting on shows when their shows were on. Which is fine, there’s nothing wrong with that kind of business. But when you get into that kind of position, then don’t use that kind of position to hold the fighters hostage.”
The full show is expected to air soon on ESPN.
