i'm not saying it's a good idea. but i'm also not dismissing it as simply a way to fuck the fighters from money.
You don't see a problem?
Having every spot on your shorts in your possesion, your hat, banner, etc. For you, your management, trainers, or whatever. While still paying a piece to Zuffa for allowing you to represent brands they don't.
Having a small amount of spots dedicated for you, management, etc. While being required to represent brands that UFC will make money off of, and STILL being required to pay a percentage to ZUFFA for allowing you to have outside brands on your shorts.
The issue of individual style, preference, or fighter opinion is beside the point. Which I feel like all three are being overlooked.
