I would like to see this company fade away from being a premier sponsor of the UFC and I would love to see Harley step up. I noticed that they sposored UFC79 (i believe) and Harley would be a great way to reach a different fan base for the sport.

Well if their drinks didn't cost $3.50 a piece they would probably sell more. Why buy one energy drink when you can get a six pack of something for the same price.
