PHOTO PROVES UFC-REEBOK DEAL “FLAT”

UFC PARTNERS WITH 25 CENTS AN HOUR REEBOK

Reebok Deal "Cheap & Revealing"

Reebok Deal “Cheap & Revealing”

San Francisco, CA– The unrest in the UFC locker room(s) regarding their “exclusive” sponsorship pact with Reebok, a company that has unabashedly paid employees 25 cents an hour to make $125 tennis shoes, continues to manifest. It is alleged that the fighters get between 12 & 15% of the total UFC revenues. That is akin to fighters making 25 cents an hour!
UFC FORCES REEBOK 0N FIGHTERS

This photo is revealing, but not to the eye. The cheap Reebok uniforms that in some cases are denying UFC fighters as much as $100,000 per fight in “individual sponsorship” is just another example of the “corporate” control (fascism) that has become the norm in America.

UFC & DANA WHITE STEALING MONEY FROM FIGHTERS

MMA INDUSTRY LEADER UFC HAS LOST IT’S WAY!

Dana White In His Natural State

Dana White In His Natural State

Los Angeles, CA- There was a time when the Ultimate Fighting Championships carried an aura of pride.  Art Davie started the UFC back in 1993 as a competition to determine the greatest fighting style in the world.  It was viewed as a side-show oddity by some, but fans of combat sports embraced the concept early on.  As the audience for UFC has grown, the sport of mixed martial arts has evolved tenfold.  Now every successful fighter employs multiple disciplines while maintaining their own individuality in the cage.  The UFC’s decision to use Reebok as the official sponsor for their new uniforms combined with their decision to ban all other sponsorship on said uniforms, this is robbing fighters of their individuality and in some cases, stacks of cash!

BLACK, WHITE AND GREEN

Essentially, champions wear a black “fight kit” and challengers wear a white one.  The only color that matters to President/UFC furor Dana White is green, however.  Yes, the man who is estimated to be worth $300 million feels the need to squeeze a few cents out of his fighters.  Before the deal, fighters could earn unlimited amounts in sponsorship.  Now, there is a Reebok pay scale.  The maximum a fighter can make from Reebok is reportedly $40,000 per fight for champions, which is about what a mid-tier fighter made before the deal.  Middle of the road heavyweight Brendan Schaub was making $100,000 per fight selling space on his trunks, now he gets $15,000. With several lawsuits already filed against the UFC over fighter pay, one would only expect this to add more fuel to the litigation fire.

BOXING WOULDN’T STOOP AS LOW AS DANA “BIG DICK” WHITE

Boxing promoters have a history of ripping fighters off, but not even they have attempted to do what the UFC is doing.  The Reebok deal shows a lack of care for fighters.  Dana White needs to realize that without the blood, sweat, and tears of the fighters he lords over, he would still be teaching “boxercise” classes at local gyms.  It is a shame that a business as profitable as the UFC would feel the need to nickel and dime their employees.

ARE UNIFORMS HERE TO STAY?

Time will tell whether the UFC elects to retain the Reebok fight kits.  While having a uniform sponsor is not necessarily bad on paper, the idea needs a great deal of tweaking to ensure that originality is preserved and fighters are able to earn as much money as possible for the sacrifices they make to their own well-being.  THE UFC has done a lot of good throughout its history, but it must pay fighters fairly in the future to repair it’s reputation.

UFC & REEBOK STEALING MONEY FROM FIGHTERS

RONDA ROUSEY HITS BRAZIL & PRE UFC 190 NOTES

DILLASHAW STILL KING, RONDA “HIT” IN RIO

Dillashaw Beats On Barao In Rematch on FOX TV

Dillashaw Beats On Barao In Rematch on FOX TV


Hayward, CA– Last week I wrote about my love for Brazilian Mixed Martial Artists. At the same time it was pointed out that the country that once “owned” the UFC is a much lesser force today in MMA. That pattern continued Saturday when TJ Dillashaw beat the man he took the UFC 135 lb. (bantamweight) title from Renan Barao, this a tad quicker!

REMATCHES RARELY DIFFER FROM FIRST BOUT

The “rule” that applies in most fights is that the “guy that wins the first time, usually wins the second” as was the case with Dillashaw-Barao II, only “easier.” Dillashaw upped his record to 12-2, while Barao (33-3-1) loses the second time since his professional debut, both to the Team Alpha Male member of Sacramento, CA. The ending of the complete dismantling came via TKO with punches at :35 of round four. Last year, the Brazilian lasted into round five.

DANA WHITE TWITTER TRASHED FOR BEING UFC DICK!

DANA WHITE “METAMORPHOSIS” FROM REGULAR GUY TO DICK

Dana "UFC Fighters Not Happy" White

Dana “UFC Fighters Not Happy” White


San Francisco, CA– Let me preface this with the following. Having known UFC owners Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta for some time, I have a tremendous amount of respect for them and their business concept. That being said, Dana White at times can be the biggest dick in the locker room, one that would even include the late John Holmes.

KNEW DANA BEFORE HAT SIZE DOUBLED

That being said, Dana White “the regular guy” died soon after UFC 33, the first PPV event for the UFC and it’s parent company Zuffa Sports. Right about then, White began filling what were once decent press meetings into diatribes sprinkled with four letter words. At first, this was entertaining to an extent.

DANA THE UNDISPUTED UFC CHAMPION OF RETALIATION

But as White has aged and at the same time further tightened his grip on the MMA world, this hands-on micro manager has to many become a despicable and often mean tyrant who is fully aware of his immature acts when punishing those who have had the balls to disagree. Call Dana what he is, “Mr. Retaliation.”

“STITCH” DURAN FIRED AFTER “RING TALK” APPEARANCE

Jacob "Stitch" Duran

Jacob “Stitch” Duran


On Sunday, Jake “Stitch” Duran was asked during the Sunday edition of “Ring Talk Worldwide” about the Reebok-UFC deal. Thanking me for bringing it up, Duran responded and said the pact was not good for the fighters, and that the ban on any advertising on the fighter’s trunks was wrong. Example, Brendan Shaub gets $100 K in advertising when he fights. Under the Reebok deal, Schaub will reportedly net $15,000.

NO FIGHTERS I KNOW HAPPY WITH REEBOK

Never in attack mode, “Stitch” Duran calmly talked about how the Reebok deal hurt him as the advertisers you’ve seen on his cutman attire are no more. No matter how you look at this, the only people happy with the UFC-Reebok pact is the UFC and Reebok. I have yet to hear one positive comment from anyone of the fighter’s side.
