When a sponsor doesn’t pay, it’s a serious charge, one that Gegard Mousasi is making against popular apparel company, Fear The Fighter.
From his official twitter:
*The cat is coming out of the back this week. Non-Paying sponsors have become an epidemic in our sport. Honest fighters are being cheated.
•I am putting all of the sponsors that have refused to pay me the money they owe on notice. I am calling u out bc. I know I am not the only 1
•@Fearthefighter u have refused for my last 2 fights & still owe me money from my 1st fight. U owe myself and others. @ftfenergy @ufc
•@Fearthefighter u promised me and @ufc that u would pay, and u lied to us. Instead of paying your debt u are investing in @ftfenergy
•All @ufc fighters I encourage all of you to speak up about sponsors that are stealing from you. We have to support each other!
•@Fearthefighter owes money to various @ufc fighters. They need to pay their debt.Stop stealing from honest fighters. @bisping @roynelsonmma
