Ronda Rousey Protests MMA Bill AB 2100 (Video)

The California State Assembly is currently deliberating bill AB 2100, which aims to establish consequences for MMA promoters who engage in “coercive” contracting practices as well as to setup a pension for MMA fighters similar to the one in place for boxers.

Opponents of the bill express concern over third-party meddling in private contractual matters, among other things.

At a hearing before the assembly, Zuffa – who stand in opposition to the bill – sent heavy hitters Marc Ratner, Lawrence Epstein, Matt Hughes and Chuck Liddell to speak against the bill, along with their new public relations darling Ronda Rousey.

The former judo Olympian and current Strikeforce women’s bantamweight champion took the floor to voice her argument against the bill, which you can watch below.
