“There are layers,” James Krause explains why Fighters’ Union is hard to form to solve fighter problems » FirstSportz
Jacob Krause is one of the few members not to immediately volunteer for the Fighters’ Union, at least for Krause, educating about the Union may ease his reluctance about its potential founding. Krause is a retired UFC fighter who is also a real estate agent, a successful bettor, and a respected coach in the MMA community. Krause is head trainer at Glory MMA & Fitness and trains well-known athletes such as Tim Elliot and Jeff Molina.
Krause recently rose to fame with the newest member of his team, the former UFC Flyweight Champion Brandon Moreno. Before his fight at UFC277, Moreno turned to Glory MMA & Fitness for a new Entram Gym training center in Mexico. In fairness it was a great decision by Moreno as he was able to defeat Kai Kara France in their rematch at the co-main of UFC 277, making him the interim UFC Flyweight Champion and earning a fourth title fight against the undisputed champion Deiveson Figueiredo.

“It costs money to be in a union,” says James Krause of Fighters’ Union
In conversation with Ariel Helwani at THE MMA HOUR, Krause talks about his retirement from fighting, his attitude towards betting and even betting, his review of Moreno’s performance at UFC 277 and more. Krause then talks about a fighter pension scheme and how it might not work, he eventually stumbles upon the conversation about starting a fighter union and can say with certainty that Krause does not advocate such a facility, but it is not a timeless opinion either.
“We’ve had union talks and all that rubbish before.” says Krause “These guys understand that it costs money to be in a union, you have to pay to be in the union, you know what I mean, these guys here are ‘oh I want more money’ but there is Layers, it’s not that easy, and I’m not saying it can’t happen or that it’s not possible, that’s not what I’m getting at. But before that, the first step is to educate the athletes what it does for you, what it is, how it can help, and that way, regardless of what’s happening in the sport, you can do those things yourself…” so Krause further.
What do you think of James Krause’s thoughts on Fighters’ Union? How do you think a successful fighter association will ever come to fruition or ever be formed? Do you think fighter union is the leading solution to solve many problems like fighter wages, robbery decisions and many more? Much of Helwani’s interview with Krause revolves around the importance of financial literacy and alternative ways to make money.
