EliteXC Fighters Threaten to File Formal Complaint If Not Released From Contracts

(‘Let my people go!’)

EliteXC fighters have apparently had enough of waiting around to see what becomes of their contracts, and are now threatening to get tough.  MMA Payout reports that many of the fighters have joined forces with the Mixed Martial Arts Fighters’ Association to bring a formal complaint against the organization for holding them in limbo all this time.  EliteXC is said to have been given a week to respond before the fighters file their complaint in court.

Some high-profile agents, such as Ken Pavia and Ed Soares, are thought to be involved with filing the complaint, just as they were in banding together to stop the auction of the remaining fighter contracts.

Let’s hope the outcome is that EliteXC finally admits the jig is up and lets everyone get on with their lives.  But if that was acceptable to them you’d have to wonder why they haven’t done it already.  At least the clock is ticking now, so we should at least be moving in the direction of some sort of resolution.

This is still going on? How much do these guys have to fuck up to realize a bad investment.

I"m honestly surprised they haven't done this a lot sooner. What could they have possibly been waiting for? Fighters, of all people know, you can't make money sitting on the shelf.

$kala will allow them to leave, under the condition that all fighters still under contract tattoo "EXC" onto themselves, so that all the fans at whatever obscure local MMA event can see that $kala knew they had potential months beforehand.

They have no choice but to do something, elite xc is so unprofessional it will never just let the fighters go. I hope this gets resolved cause i really wanna see these guys fight again soon, and not let their talent be wasted on legal battles.
