I did not throw this in news because Ariel Helwani said it was unconfirmed, but on this week's The MMA Hour, Helwani said this:

"What I heard from one source, just one, was that it was a one year deal worth $20,000. That's what I heard, but I have not been able to confirm that with multiple sources. One source very close to Jon, by the way, I should say. It's not like it's just source you know out of the blue."

link, about seven and a half minutes into the broadcast

That doesn't sound right.

Everyone has it as a multi-year deal, with signature clothing line and plenty of advertising.

Maybe that was $20K for the first month's pay.

You're not going to sign up to be the "global face" of Nike for $20K.

Maybe Nike wants to work with him but the DWI was enough for them to worry. give him a 1 year deal low money and see how he acts.

I have trouble thinking 20k is all he got.

That is literally NOTHING to Nike. But hey who cares. Getting paid something is better then nothing

I'll put it this way....

I'd take $100 a month from Levi's to wear their pants

I'd take $50 a month from RVCA to wear their shirts

I'd take $25 a month from Adidas to wear their kicks

I'd take $10 a month from Electric to wear their shades

So $20,000 a year from Nike is not bad but yes, I figured it would be more

I'm with everyone that doesn't believe it's only 20K.

It's not the number I would've guessed but I'm not in disbelief.

Who is Jon Jones to the average American? At this point he doesn't have tons of star power...
