Zinkin Entertainment ordered to produce more documents to Plaintiffs in Zuffa Antitrust Lawsuit

August 3, 2017

Last week a Federal Court in Fresno, California has ordered MMA Fighter Management firm to hand over more documents in the UFC Antitrust Lawsuit.  The fighters suing the UFC had requested documents from the company related to Zinkin’s clients within the requisite period of time related to clients’ “image and likeness.”

Plaintiffs have offered to provide a third party discovery vendor to Zinkin to collect this information at Plaintiffs’ expense per Court Order.  The MMA Management firm which currently represents Luke Rockhold and Daniel Cormier was served a subpoena by Plaintiffs in 2015.

Zinkin Entertaintment – Order to Produce Docs by JASONCRUZ206 on Scribd

Payout Perspective:

Zinkin had produced documents to the Plaintiffs but based on the motion Plaintiffs believed the documents to be insufficient.  The documents are being produced as “Attorney Eyes Only” which means that only the Plaintiffs’ Attorneys, and not their clients – the fighters, will be able to have knowledge of these documents.  This designation usually occurs where sensitive and confidential information is provided.  It provides some security that the discovery documents are not disclosed to a broad group of people.  It is a condition that Zinkin’s attorneys likely wanted if they had to produce documents.
