Ed Ruth's Bellator signing puts spotlight on UFC's Reebok deal
"I've been talking with all the major organizations, and at the end of the day, I really believe in what Scott Coker is doing with Bellator." Ruth said. "They're signing the top talent, they're putting on exciting fights, and they're letting me secure my own sponsors." The issue of fighter sponsorship jumped to the forefront of MMA's collective conscious earlier this year when it was announced that MMA's flagship promotion, the UFC, would be signing an exclusive apparel deal with Reebok. The deal will make Reebok the UFC’s official uniform provider and will pay each fighter anywhere from $5,000-$40,000 per fight, depending on championship standing and tenure.

Rafael Nunes says injury, illness takes him out of ONE Championship 27 vs. Eddie Ng
Rafael Nunes was anxious to get back to work since sitting on the sidelines since this past July. But now he’ll have to wait a little longer. Nunes (10-1) was set to face Eddie Ng (7-2) later this month at ONE Championship 27. Instead, an injury and illness has knocked him out of the fight, he told MMAjunkie. Nunes said a clavicle injury happened first, but it wouldn’t necessarily have kept him from the lightweight bout. But then the Brazilian came down with dengue fever, he said – a mosquito-borne virus.
