Ronda Rousey vs Fight Tribe Management

On March 7th, Fight Tribe Management filed petition for arbitration in Los Angeles Superior Court.  Rousey’s attorney, Steven Bash of Bash & Polyachenko, P.C., has not commented specifically on the cause of the disagreement but did say the following in an interview with Sherdog:

“Honestly, I’m still gathering a lot of facts, because my firm’s involvement is strictly for this particular issue,” said Bash. “I can’t really comment on the source of the friction. I can tell you that there are multiple sources, but it’s still pretty premature to discuss them, because the issue is one of legality, rather than what I’m sure people want to hear, which is ‘What’s going on behind the scenes to have caused this situation to occur?’ It’s premature for that, and in my opinion, it’s not necessary. Maybe it all comes out later in the future, but right now, like in any relationship that comes to an end, there is an emotional component to it. So I think it would be an unnecessary aspect of what is going on.”

Bash & Polyachnko, P.C., will respond to the petition, but Bash declined to comment on the specifics of the response.

Sherdog has more information about this developing story.
