    Just noticed this morning Joanna pulled Reebok Poland from her IG. She usually lists her top sponsors at the top and it's gone.

    She had an exclusive deal with them for like 4-5 years and done major campaigns for them.

    If Reebok is not re-signing with the UFC I get that it may not be worth it but that's in 2021 and this is 5 weeks from UFC 248 which gives them the most PR time/value. Plus she was pushing Conor's exclusive kicks just the other week. Reebok already didn't have many exclusive deals like this. The last exclusive deal we know they canned was PVZ.

    Could be just a mistake but it's interesting to pick up on little things like this and see what happens when you pull on that thread.

    Joanna is addicted to her kicks so it will be interesting to see if she gets a new sponsor or if something is up.

    Don't speak Polish. Can anyone roughly translate? Sounds like Joanna is thanking Reebok for 5 years of cooperation and they are breaking amicably. Still odd with 5 weeks to UFC 248.

    Here's some pics of Joanna's latest clothing brand for you hound dogs:

    She's getting so much money from so many places. Her European sponsors are crazy. She's never listed all her sponsors at the top of her IG. You have to go through the post tags.

    She did like 4 years with euro Disney

    I truly hope they consider this a failed experiment of a Reebok deal and actually get a decent sponsorship with a respectable brand.

    Maybe it has to do with the corona virus thing. It was a bad look for her.

    I didn't know that. I thought she only had that one campaign in 2018 with them that she was forced to break when Dana booked her vs Valentina. She spoke about it with Ariel and based on that interview she said she had been wearing Disney for years and they finally contacted her and decided to do a campaign with her. Kind of backfired in a way cause she was supposed to do a Euro wide tour for them to all the Disney stores and did none of it cause of Dana.

    You have to keep in mind Joanna tags sponsors she has no money from and probably shows them metrics and they decide if they want to actually pay her for a campaign. She has done this for years and it's a pretty common thing for IG influencers except Joanna is very selective when she tags. So if you think that means she is getting showered with cash you would be wrong. Although it can lead to that.

    Yeah I did the same. That's why I think it's safe to assume they are done. I just don't know what she said in the video.

    The CEO/founder of UA was at the Conor event if I'm not mistaken. So you might be right. Still leaves room for a kicks sponsor. Don't think UA makes shoes.

    What's funny is these contracts are really fucked up. I know at one point they made Joanna take her sponsored kicks off cause she didn't have the right contract to wear them at the ceremonial weigh ins. This might have been a couple of years ago.

    She in turn has covered Monster cans with a hat at the post fight presser at least 2 or 3 times now and has showed up with an Oshee towel and water bottle all over the place at UFC events. lol

    There's clearly a battle going on behind the scenes fans don't really see/understand.

    Polish is not my first or even second language but I understand some of it. It sounds like Joanna is following her dreams and making changes. Then she thanks Rebook for 5 years of cooperation and mentions her upcoming instagram @joannastyleig that seems to be fashion based. @prostowear seems to be her new sponsor or something.

    All the under armour stuff I’ve bought just seems like cheap shit that they’ve stuck a label on and Nike trainers have gone down hill the past couple of years

    BTW isn't title fight in jeopardy?
    Since last saturday Trump restricted entry into USA from China: "administration’s action will restrict all foreign nationals who have been to China in the past 14 days from entering the United States. The restriction does not include immediate family members of American citizens and permanent residents."
    Also there's quarantine for Americans who can travel from China. I've checked IG of Zhang (btw why is looking like small boy?):

    "Everyone is trying the best to make my title defence fight happen." LOL.
    Hard to say when she left China, she went to Thailand probably 3 days ago 5-6.02.. Two weeks from it is 19-20.02. so lets say it's date she can enter USA (maybe). Then there will be some quarantine.
    "Two flights chartered by the State Department from Wuhan, China — where the virus first emerged in December — arrived at Travis Air Force Base near San Francisco on Wednesday morning carrying approximately 350 Americans. The passengers will be quarantined at U.S. military facilities for 14 days."
    14 days was for people coming from Wuhan, but they were Americans.
    If they will allow her to enter USA around 20.02. and quarantine will be 14 days it will end 2-3 days before fight...
