    Some tv shows will blur out or cover brands.

    Bingo. Nike wouldn't tell him to cover up his swooshes, they'd just tell him to stop wearing his shit, or that if he did wear it he shouldn't expect any $$.

    UFC cuts guys for losing twice on the prelims.

    Are you people not familiar with instagram? There is no form of brand censorship on there. People including celebrities post lewd and uncensorered controversial pics there all the time. This pic is most likely from before his title defense.

    Do you think he's at his house, hanging out casually and just happened to take a picture? He's back stage at a tv show he was on.

    Let's hope so. He doesn't deserve the sponsorship.

    Looks like he's at a TV appearance, the picture before that has the swoosh in plain sight.

    It's not like Nike is paying him that much to begin with

    Nike dropped sponsorship and UFC pays its fighters so little he can't afford any new shirts, only the ones Nike gave him.

    :(

    So he couldn't have taken that pic backstage right before or after he came out? He's backstage at a tv show met a celeb and snapped a pic with her simple as that
