TimW001 » Posted 3/30/07 6:31:00PM

"Today I shot a commercial for Gatorade - [I'm] proud to be the first MMA athlete to be sponsored by Gatorade, and also proud for the sport - it shows how far it has come. [It's] really an honor for me to be [in] the company of such other great athletes. Tomorrow I shoot the movie "Death Warrior" - I'll write more in a few days when I have some time. Thanks to everyone for all their support! "


Here's a 30-second teaser.

This is a pretty big deal. GSP deserves to be at the top of the advertising food chain, so using him is a no-brainer. But I'm really suprised that it's taken this long to get a major sponsor on board with MMA. Nike sponsors a few fighters in Japan, but not over here. I'm scutally getting pretty tired of seeing condom depot on everyone's trunks. The niche products like suppliment brands, Toyo Tires, and the like have been nice. But I think it's time to get some internationally recognized advertising into the fold. This would go a long way to further legitimizing the sport, as well as putting even bigger $$$ in fighter's pockets.

MMA trucks are going to be the new Nascars in the years to come.

And as El Guapo always says- "God speed, and party on. Whoap!"

Dont worry when NIke sees me fight they gonna give me a 90mil 10 year contract. im gonna grab my kicks when i take them off to enter the cage and show the world NIKE!, then im gonna grab then after i destroy my opponets and put them on in the cage for the world to see! NIKE! ;p.....

This is awesome, i cant wait for the day when NIke, and Walmart, and Target, and all sorts of random "brands" are making and gear, sponsering fighters etc ;p..

Great day and a step foward for MMA props to GSP

i am glad more fighters are going main stream cause their pay checks aren't doing it

This is a huge deal for the sport. It is the start of mainstream advertising for MMA. GSP is a very good spokesperson for the sport IMO.

GSP is absolutely the best choice. He's personable, charismatic, and a great fighter...

my next best choice would be the guy TMAS that just wrote above. But, for now, GSP.

Its good for the sport, I hope more sports orientated company's take the leap and sponsor fighters.

I always figured it would be GSP or Rampage. With Page going through his personal trouble that kind of ruled him out though. If Rashad does somehow beat Page I think he could be next.

“Never violate a woman, nor harm a child. Do not lie ,cheat ,or steal.for selfish gain. These things are for lesser men. Protect the weak against the evil strong. And never allow thoughts of gain to lead you into the pursuit of evil. Never back away from an enemy. Either fight or surrender. It is not enough to say I will not be evil. Evil must be fought wherever it is found.”

If he didn't already have those No Fear Energy spots they perhaps should've gone with Faber.
