But you lose sponsors because your of the sponsor fees the ufc wants. If nike couldn't get approved I think that's saying something about the direction things are going

Dat $100,000 sponsorship tax...

With Nike, Dana probably wants much more than just $100k.

Now we know that Under Armour's CEO could be in attendance, and Nike is not allowed at the event.

I dunno, a lot of coincidences here. Don't be surprised if they're all connected.
Glad to see an intelligent poster on Sherdog.

The sponsorship deal had been talked about since last year, Under Armour has been linked with it since last year, too.

The UFC banning Nike, Reebok, etc. just shows, that Under Armour is the mainstream sports brand the UFC is going to work with.

Looked to me like Jon wore the Nike shirt, but the shirt was customly made to not include the Nike logo on it. Also was smart of Jones/Nike to have his brothers wearing the Nike shirts and to get Jones to go over next to them in the crowd to avoid sponsorship tax.

Apparently this idiot thinks Nike is the only sponsor that can be censored by the UFC.

Advertisement fees are nothing new and you too would charge if any brand wanted to use a wall of your house to advertise. The world where you advertise for free doesn't exist yet.

Maybe Nike doens't think the money UFC is asking is worth their time, but others sponsors do, what's the problem then? Nike? The UFC?
