The UFC found out who is behind the class-action lawsuit brought against them in a California court on Tuesday, as Cung Le, Jon Fitch and Nate Quarry appeared at a press conference.
The suit was brought before the U.S. District Court in the Northern District of California on Tuesday afternoon, citing anti-competitive practices being used by the UFC. Le, who stated during the press conference that he is still under contract to the promotion, and Quarry were both present, while Fitch was on the phone.

Along with that law firm, Joseph Saveri Law Firm, Inc. and Berger and Montague, P.C. will also be involved in the suit.
Fitch, a former No. 1 contender to the UFC welterweight title, is currently signed to a fight contract with the World Series of Fighting. Quarry, an alum of The Ultimate Fighter’s first season, retired from active competition two years ago.
Le was fined and suspended after initially failing his post-fight drug test earlier this year following a loss to Michael Bisping. However, after appealing, the result was thrown out.
