NEWARK, N.J. – UFC 159 main event winner and light heavyweight champion Jon Jones broke some major ground in 2012 when he signed a sponsorship deal with Nike. But Nike soon could have some in-octagon competition from one of its biggest competitors.

UFC President Dana White told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) following UFC 159 that the promotion will meet with Reebok this week to talk about a major sponsorship opportunity.

I wonder if Jones will be allowed to wear the NIKE logo anymore.
