Early reports started surfacing Tuesday afternoon about a possible Nike sponsorship for JDS. It only looks more likely following his appearance on UFC Tonight.

I hope they have a better catch phrase for JDS.

I liked Bones Knows. Not enough to buy the shirt, but I liked it.

I thought "Bones Knows" was dumb, just like "Silva Knows." It's a ripoff from the old "Bo Knows" from back in the day.

Sweet deal for Junior. He's a good fighter and a good dude. I'm happy for him.

Couple of possible new JDS slogans...

JDS takes a guess

JDS thinks

JDS reckons

JDS would totally destroy the other MMA fighter sponsored by us and everyone would rejoice

Brazil has always been huge into fashion since like the 60's. Nike is a staple especially for the hoods. That is why they call eachother playboys in the favillas as an insult. It is ass backwards imo. They are just adding JDs to a list of sponsored sports figures from brazil that is dominated by soccer players.
