“Listen, we all want more money. Of course we do. A lot of fighters are going to call me a company man and this and that. But the UFC has always been very fair with me. They’ve been very fair. Dana and Lorenzo have always treated me with great respect and I can’t thank them enough. Of course with this Reebok deal – I can’t lie – I’m going to lose money. But it will also be a much more professionally run thing.
“Of course my figure that I earn is cut down a little bit. But, at the same time, I don’t have to deal with these companies that don’t pay. There’s one company in particular that owes me $50,000. I’m not going to say because I’m trying to get paid by them. I’m not going to throw them under the bus fully just yet. I’m about to. If a check doesn’t come through. You know who you are. I think, if you use your brain, people could figure that one out if you look at my t-shirts I’ve worn in my previous fights.”
“The level of professionalism in the sport is going to go to another level. So, yeah, there is some negatives, but I’m sure that’ll level itself out in the future.”
UFC middleweight Michael Bisping gave his thoughts on the Reebok deal when talking to MMAJunkie. Seems like he’s on board with the new sponsorship deal. It’s safe to say there’s plenty of arguments being made for both sides of the debate.
