Anderson Silva Gets Global Nike Deal | UFC NEWS


“It started off as Nike Brazil, but it has since been made a global deal. I don’t think there’s another mixed martial arts athlete on the planet that deserves that more than Anderson. He’s one of the best athletes out there that fits that mold, the face of Nike. Look at all the people they’ve sponsored. People have compared Anderson as the Michael Jordan of MMA. The best of the best have always had some sort of affiliation with Nike, and I think the brand fits Anderson better than any other MMA athlete in the world.”

In an interview with Bloodyelbow.com’s Steph Daniels, manager to Anderson Silva, Mr. Ed Soares revealed that his star athlete has infact booked a global deal with sport industry leader NIKE.

    Cant they come up with something new for their shirts. They have the same thing for Pacman and Jones too. Nike is just too lazy i guess

  2. 123 says:

    GSP will have 1 next, GSP knows. lol

  3. cocojojo says:

    IF ANYONE IS DESERVING OF A NIKE TITLE OF CURRENT FIGHTERS ANDERSON SILVA SHOULD HAVE BEEN AT THE TOP OF THE LIST. A.SILVA SHOULD HAVE TAKEN HIS “MARKETABLE MMA PERSONA” TO ONE OF NIKE’S COMPETITORS JUST BECAUSE THEY CHOSE JON JONES FIRST. A.SILVA IS AN O.G. IN THE GAME AND IMO HAS CONTRIBUTED MORE TO THE SPORT WORLDWIDE THAN JJ HAS AT THIS POINT. BUT I’M ALSO GLAD THAT JJ WAS SIGNED TO NIKE SO I CANT FRONT ON MY BROTHA.

    I’M JUST KEEPING IT 100.

    Silva was the first MMA fighter to be sponsored by Nike. Since 2010 I think. Not Jones.
