    it's all good. if nike drops him, i'm sure he'll get another shoe endorsement, but it'll probably be 'new balance' or toe shoes/crocs

    Nike's Motto is "Just Do It".

    Tonight JDS didn't do it. In fact, he didn't do shit!

    Being the second best HW in the best MMA promotion isn't too shabby. He was the champion for a bit too and holds the record for the longest undefeated streak at HW i think.

    I think JDS was champion at the same time nike is looking for endorsers in UFC thats it he didnt deserve it now that we have 10 rounds for him to prove it but was beat up in stead

    Nothing wrong at all.

    Think about all the other sports.
    Only one person/team can be champion each season/tournament, doesn't mean all the other guys can't have endorsements.

    Do you know how many people live in Brazil? That is a HUGE market for Nike. And despite the loss, Im sure Cigano is still a god in Brazil.

    Cain destroyed his marketing chances with the racist statement across his chest

    Nike was investing heavily in the Brazilian market so thats why jds was sponsored and other ufc champs weren't/haven't been. Akyimaa was sponsored by them too because he also opened up a specific market,

    According to Dana, that isnt racist. Im brown, Cain doesnt represent me. Wonder what uncle Fester wouldve said if the whitest fighter in UFC had White Pride tattoed on his chest.
    White doesnt mean american, as much as brown stands for mexican. That tat is simple and plain racist.

    This, not sure if I agree with the racist part, but that tat def doesn't help him to get endorsements

    Ah shit, can't buy nike since the #2 guy is wearing them. Glad their advertising is paying off since it convinces dumb people to buy shit based on who wears them...

    it is

    imagine someone with white pride he would never fight in the UFC with it ,black pride would be ok too.

    or someone with straight PRIDE ,Dana would flame the guy right away and fire him
