Benson Henderson: "UFC decided to make it official, I'm a start calling them the NBA"

From his Facebook:

Mwahahaha!!! Guess @ufc decided to make it official...I'm a start calling them the NBA...guess it's one thing to be encouraged to do or dress one way & entirely another thing to be told to do or dress one way...

“Per Jackie, effective immediately, fighters and talent traveling on press tours and PR/marketing-related appearances are no longer permitted to wear shorts or flip flops. Jeans are acceptable and shoes are a must.”

Don't get me wrong, I'm gonna dress how my employers want but doesn't mean I gotta be happy about it..."Don't let the man hold you down" "Fight the power" "You can take my life but you can never take my FREEDOM!!!"
Fuck sandals.

Chael Sonnen: "Anderson Silva [has] earned the right to be called the greatest of all-time."

Suck it up Bendo, they pay you better than any other job you can get. Just be glad you don't have to wear a suit like some of us.

Stern's dress code stated that all players must dress in business or conservative attire while arriving and departing during a scheduled game, on the bench while injured, and when conducting official NBA business (press interviews, charity events, etc.). The new dress code banned fashions most often associated with hip-hop culture, specifically: Hardwood Classics jerseys (or any other jersey), jeans, hats, do-rags, t-shirts, large jewelry, sneakers and Timberland style boots.

This particular clothing is not allowed to be worn by players to interviews, games (on and off the bench), charity events, or any other occasion affiliated with the NBA or the NBDL. Violators of the dress code are fined and may be suspended with repeat offenses. The dress code was developed with the intention of combating image problems that have plagued the NBA in recent history.
Guess the UFC is cracking down on image during UFC events like the NBA ^ did.

"Fight the power" with sandals.

They want you to look some what professional since you're a professional fighter.
I agree with it.

This should be all the UFC needs to get that New York sanctioning and mainstream media respect. About time.
