“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.
