    The Trump Organized has decided to invest in the future of MMA by partnering with Affliction. This is a pretty hefty backer that will be in Afflictions corner as they continue to gain market share in the industry.

Like I mentioned yesterday, we will be seeing more and more big players entering this industry, and this will be great for up and coming fighters who are in need of sponsorship.
