More news surrounding Reebok’s partnership with the UFC is buzzing after the UFC on FOX 17 event. Fighters who were fined from Reebok from the event include Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, Nate Diaz and lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos.
“Cowboy” has challenged Reebok to donate his large fine to a military charity, while Diaz has tweeted that his “baby” pay from Reebok is so minimal, they should have kept it all. Rafael dos Anjos was fined a “significant” amount for wearing one of his sponsors t-shirts at his weigh in. Dos Anjos revealed the amount of the fine to MMA Fighting to be $10,000 after he was paid $40,000 for the event from the apparel sponsor as a champion.
With Reebok’s numerous errors in their MMA department, it looks like the athletic wear company is sharp when it comes to making sure the UFC fighters are kept in line with their sponsorship deal.
