Kajan Johnson Believes Project Spearhead Needs A Miracle To Survive

MMA

Project Spearhead launched earlier this year by former UFC fighter Leslie Smith and the goal of the organization was to help unionize UFC fighters.

Former UFC fighter Kajan Johnson serves as the interim vice president for the group and he says it will take a miracle for Project Spearhead to survive.

“Who the f-ck in their right mind do you think would join that organization now?” Johnson told Bloody Elbow. “Everybody was f-cking scared before. Everybody was scared when Leslie was still in [the UFC]. Then she gets cut. And then everybody’s f-cking terrified. And now I’m gone. Trying to get a fighter to f-cking sign on that dotted line, there’s no f-cking way. There’s no f-cking way. It’s just not going to happen. For Project Spearhead to actually be a success now, it would be a f-cking miracle. Jesus would have to come down and do a second coming and create some miracle around Project Spearhead to get enough fighters to sign onto that thing to actually do what it’s meant to do.”

Other than Smith and Johnson, lightweight fighter Al Iaquinta serves as the interim treasurer for the group.

Iaquinta is the only fighter on the UFC roster who has an official position in the group, but Johnson says that Iaquinta has been inactive in his duties.

“The only person that can do anything right now is him,” Johnson said. “If it’s gonna happen, it’s on Al. Because of his inactivity in the group, I’d be f-cking surprised if it happens.”

This is the not the first time an unionization effort took place within the UFC, with the MMAAA, MMAFA and PFA also trying to unionize the UFC athletes.
