Union Victory in Ongoing Battle with UFC
The Marine Corps has chosen not to renew their UFC sponsorship deal. Ordinarily the loss of a sponsor wouldn't be particularly newsworthy.
The difference here is that the Marine Corps caved to pressure from an affiliate of the Culinary Workers Union. For those who aren't aware, they've had a longstanding dispute with the UFC which is also the primary hurdle preventing legalization of MMA in New York.
Another one in the win column for the union.
The hilarious part is all the BS about political correctness and the UFC not being in line with the Corps' values when it's really all about the greenbacks.
