From an e-mail advertisement signed as from Jennifer Amato

Dana White Took Food From The Mouths of Our Sponsored Fighters Just In Time For Christmas! Sorry Spencer, Josh, Gabe, Jake and everyone else...
We have been notified that we have been Banned From the UFC and WEC!
We have provided fighters 100's of thousands of dollars DIRECTLY over the last 2 years but can no longer do so! Not to mention word came down during AIDS awareness month!!

This is BS! Where are these guys going to go now for protection? Joking aside, they were one of my favorite sponsors just because of who they are.

(I know...)

Edit: Well, now they could switch to Trojan...then they could say they're a "TROJAN MAN!" OK, I'll stop now...*hums Trojan jingle*

I don't think Strikeforce is going anywhere, they keep doing things right, and they allow their fighters to be themselves, and they put on good fights.

I know right? Wouldn't you at least have a friend proof read this if it was going to be sent out nationally? Anyway, I'm glad they didn't, now I get free chuckles.

By the way, condoms suck anyway.

It sure would have been nice if they included the reason why. Or maybe Zuffa didn't bother to tell them?

I wonder when Dana will realize without the fighters there is no UFC, but without the UFC there will always be fights. He's going to screw himself, which he deserves since he keeps screwing the fighters.

Enlighten me and the others I am sure on how you saw this comming. Yes, UFC does ban sponsors, but they ussually have a reason. Whats the reason this time?

Because the UFC wants the sponsors to pay THEM a large chunk of cash just to sponsor their fighters. In most cases Im sure its a very large chunk.. which is why everyone is saying no, and getting banned in return.

I think is is completely rediculous, especially when the UFC is paying guys $2k for a fight, while their sponsors are putting food in their mouthes

I'm really glad. That sponsor is in bad taste and I think many many casual or less than casual fans were turned off by watching guys grapple w/ condom ads on their a**es. I was surpriseed they were ever allowed to ad that way in the first place. It's not like there aren't more appropriate sponsors that will pay these guys.
