    "Rampage says he's sponsored by Reebok now, but the UFC isn't allowing him to wear Reebok in the cage next Saturday night."

    Why?

    Probably has something to do with sponsors needing to pay the UFC too

    What the hell does the UFC have Reebok? Do they sponsor Fedor or something?
    Maybe one of their current sponsors doesn't like it?

    Why do the UFC meddle in a fighter's affair such as sponsorship?

    Sponsors have to first pay the ufc like 75k to then be able to sponsor fighters and put their logo on them for the fight.

    They can sponsor Rampage outside the UFC all they want

    Given Rampage's experiences with female reporters, I'm surprised a mainstream company like Reebok would want to get involved with him, haha.

    Nike probably pays out the ass to UFC. No free rides for Reebok.

    It's from the conference call, Rampage just said he's sponsored by them but that the UFC isn't letting him wear anything with Reebok on it on the Fox card. Didn't mention anything about it being because of Reebok's fault

    I guess, but I thought the Nike sponsorships benefit the fighters and not actually the UFC itself.

    Good for Rampage landing such a sponsor. Find it very strange that the UFC will not allow him to wear it into the cage. Quite a petty, I suppose it's a good thing that major, global sports wear companies like Nike and Reebok also like to sponsor mma fighters now.
