A new MMA company is rumored to debut in 2023. While a lot of the details have still to surface, the biggest news is the benefits for the fighters. Benefits for the fighters have long been an issue for MMA fighters and an issue that the fans have long supported.

In a post on his website, MMA insider Ariel Helwani gave the details of this new fight league — which he said would be “structured more like the NFL/NBA/NHL than your typical MMA promotion.”.

Helwani also went on to report more on how the promotion plans to support and pay their fighters with an impressive revenue share and CBA.

“This new league would also include an athlete association that implements a [collective bargaining agreement] with 50/50 revenue share, guaranteed contracts, health insurance, career-ending insurance, and a pension plan. The plan is to announce the venture in the coming days, I’m told. They are hoping to launch in 2023.”
