UFC Antitrust Litigation: Monopsony in Labor Markets
2 PM EDT
One key issue in the UFC antitrust litigation is whether the UFC (the largest MMA promotion) has used various exclusionary tactics, such as exclusive contracts with fighters, to eliminate its rivals, and maintain a monopsony for MMA fighter services. The panelists will address the arguments for both sides, in addition to discussing the larger issue of monopsony in labor markets—including sports leagues (such as the NCAA), and no-poach agreements in various sectors of the economy. The panelists will also address the application of the Rule of Reason, and the potential for balancing harm to workers (or athletes) with benefits to downstream consumers.
