About three years ago, we were excited to tell you about a new women’s MMA reality show that was to air nationally on NBC.

According to their press release, it was going to feature some of the big names in women’s MMA: Tara LaRosa, Rosi Sexton and Cris Cyborg as coaches, with Felice Herrig, Roxy Richardson, Kerry Vera, Michelle Vera, Marloes Coenen and Jessica Aguilar among the 16 fighters.

That show never made it to air, but it did make some news recently when Fox Chicago reported that a local politician was being sued by seven of the fighters.

Sean Morrison was an investor for the show, and he’s also a candidate for the Cook County Board of Review. He’s being sued by fighters that claim they were never paid for being on the show.

Here’s the clip from Fox Chicago:
