Though the UFC itself hasn’t taken a stance on the worldwide protests going on around the world, fourteen UFC fighters have teamed up to create a video voicing their support for the Black Lives Matter movement.
Randy Brown released the clip, which also includes fighters Angela Hill, Israel Adesanya, Rose Namajunas, Belal Muhammad, Michael Bisping, Shana Dobson, Phillip Rowe, Derek Brunson, Jared Gordon, Sodiq Yusuff, Karl Roberson, Andre Ewell, and Corey Anderson. In the video, the fighters condemned police brutality and racism.
This isn’t the only time that UFC fighters have spoken up about the protests. Adesanya actually spoke at one of the protests in Auckland, New Zealand. Jon Jones was also recorded convincing two young men to give up their cans of spray paint in the midst of unrest in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Chuck Liddell reportedly tried to deescalate verbal altercations in Huntington Beach, CA.
