“We’re in negotiations with [Reebok]. We will see what we’re going to do.”

“If it’s not something good for us, I won’t sign with them. We have to be happy with the deal, and it has to be financially good for me as well. Everybody knows I was sponsored by Nike and that I always wore Nike. I love Nike. That’s the truth. I feel true to myself when I’m with Nike, so I can’t wear a brand that doesn’t make me feel true to myself. If I feel good with what Reebok offers me, I would definitely use it every day, or I’ll just use it in the Octagon and that’s it.”

During a press-conference today in Brazil, former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva discussed the UFC’s new deal with Reebok, which directly impacts Silva’s longtime relationship with Nike.
