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.

Bellator has added a Brazilian heavyweight to its roster. Ewerton Teixeira, Winner of the K-1 World GP in 2008 and world champion in kyokushin, has signed a deal with Bellator, sources close to the situation told MMAFighting.com.
