Bellator’s Rick Hawn Says Sponsor Cancelled His Check After Most Recent Loss | MMA NEWS

So one of my main sponsors from my fight canceled his check cuz he wasnt happy with the outcome or my performance. Read his explanations below.

“At this point, a stop payment has been placed on check which cannot be cashed or deposited now”

“I will not comment on Rick and his fight. That is not my place. But what I will tell you is this: I took a huge chance with him. TV exposure was great…but it only holds weight if he wins or puts on a good show. Neither happened. At the end of the day…not one sole (sp) will run to [my] store and buy product because they [saw my logo and saw] Rick loose (sp) the fight. I’ve made it my career and business to know what nets a return on investment for the brand…and this is the number 1 reason why I DO NOT hand out money or product to fighters.”

Its funny how all my pics wearing his product are still up on his company pages even after he says and does all this stuff!!

A lawsuit is pending so I cannot comment on who it is just yet but stay tuned.

– All that came from Hawn’s official Twitter Account.

    Unless there was something specific in the contract , related to win / lose then this appears like it should be a win case in court for the fighter . To think one can agree to sponsor a fighter then cancel check after a loss is ridiculous . I wish the fighter luck

    Yeah…and to teach them how to spell “lose.”

    Goddamn this country is dumb.
