    Hey guys. We all know a lot has been said about the Reebok/UFC deal. Some of you at least know that I work directly, but a Zuffa Zombie I am not, nor than what I'm doing here is any sort of Zuffa/Reebok funded de-bait thread. But as I sit here getting UFC Nashville ready, I started trying to come up with a pros/cons list for the deal.

    So I wanted to posit the request to you guys: Regardless of the side of the issue you're on, I'd personally like to hear a pro and a con (at minimum) on the deal.

    Not looking for pointless debate. And forgive me if the horse is being thwacked, but I've been a bit busy with all the shows to handle, so I've been in my own little bubble of just me and the other guys putting the uniforms together. I know plenty of the cons, and I figured there was no point in just saying "list the pros".

    Regardless, I'm still interested in pros/cons that the average sherdogger sees in it, outside of just reactionary bulls#it.

    I wish they would allow more colours that the two-tone shit we have right now. And get rid of all the ugly-ass stripes and shit, the "fight-kits" look lame as fuck. I can't think of a single pro from this deal.

    The greatest sport on earth should not be sponsored by the leading maker of nurse shoes.

    It further entrenches the slaves, er, the athletes into this exploitive system in place in MMA.

    In all honesty he's not that good. 2500 sounds fair.

    It really is
