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.

UFC Fight Night 65 post-fight facts: Stipe Miocic's 361 total strikes set UFC record
After a record-setting night of finishes during the UFC’s previous event in Australia, UFC Fight Night 65 turned out to be a worthy encore and produced 10 stoppages in 12 fights at Adelaide Entertainment Center. A first-round knockout opened Saturday’s card, but Stipe Miocic (13-2 MMA, 7-2 UFC) closed it out with a drawn-own beatdown of Mark Hunt (10-10-1 MMA, 5-4-1 UFC) in the heavyweight main event. It was a noncompetitive bout in which Miocic battered Hunt with a record amount of strikes before the referee stepped in to award the TKO win in Round 5. Miocic wasn’t the only one to make history in Adelaide, though. Check out 50 post-fight facts to come out of UFC Fight Night 65...

Instead of asking Mark Hunt if he wanted to stop, officials should have forced him to
In retrospect, the doctor should have been a clue. The doctor meant well. The doctor was a great big red flag. It happened between the fourth and fifth rounds in the headliner of Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 65 event at Adelaide Entertainment Centre in Adelaide, South Australia, Australia. Standing over the series of misshapen lumps that had very recently resembled Mark Hunt, this cageside doctor leaned in close and asked, “Mark, can you honestly see?”
