    Anyone know about that Lloyd Irvin sponsorship package?
    It's pretty expensive, but no one seems to have any info on it.
    Also, do you have any idea how to get sponsors for BJJ or MMA?

    Well, from a logical perspective, you have to be good enough at something, and well known enough in something, that a company stands to make money by giving you free shit.

    In Nate Diaz's words, you gotta "whoop dat ass"

    Hahaha, when I was climbing, this point was made to me. "If you wanna be sponsored, you have to be good enough so that when people look at you, they think to themselves 'omg, i wanna do everything just like him...what kind of shoes is he wearing'"

    lol, yep.

    one of the students at my school was a professional paintballer with crazy sponsorship, and his companies did so well off him they still give him free shit even though he hasn't played in a long time. haha, they started making fight gear and sending it to him now.

    i asked him, and it's actually a really popular sport in certain areas. they had him traveling all over the world, and it's actually how he got into BJJ because they paid for his lessons in hawaii or some crap.


    mainly you have to be really good, just like any other professional athlete i suppose.

    A guy who trains in the same place as I did buy it. But he still don't have any sponsors. And just check out the other threads about that guy. Lloyds stuff is just overpriced and overhyped.
