i think Rampage is pulling the classic "I'm breaking up w/ you before you can break up w/ me" routine.
if he cant wear Reebok bc it's in his contract, then he probably already knew that when he signed the Reebok contract.
But I can't be the only one who has a problem with that? How can Zuffa tell fighters who they can and can't be sponsored by! Especially when it comes to mainstream lucrative contracts that could set them up for life!
I get the the UFC needs sponsors to function but how will it effect their business if they have say a Nike swoosh in the middle of the octagon and one of their fighters has shorts made by Reebok?
Dana once made a huge deal about contracts granting matching periods because fighters have a short amount of time to get as much money as they can. How is limiting mainstream sponsorship good for them?
How is it good business for the UFC as a brand?
This move, if true, is an absolute joke and I don't get how anyone can defend it.
