    So many of us how voiced our disgust with the Reebok deal and vowed to never purchase a Reebok product again. I think it is time we start sending emails to Reebok to let them know of our refusal to purchase anything made by Reebok.

    My message:
    Dear Reebok. I absolutely hate what you have done to UFC fighter pay. Fighters were making many times what you are offering them. This is terrible for MMA because you have other sports with single athletes making more than the entire UFC roster is from your deal. The entire setup is disgusting and will prevent MMA from gaining the same ground as other sports. I will never purchase any of your products since I could never support a company that has killed my favourite sport and fighters.

    Here is a list of contacts:

    For Company and Title I put:

    FU**

    YOU

    Edit:
    Ok maybe take out the swearing, and add something saying that you are actually going out of your way to purchase something from their competitors.

    Nah, if you hit Dana he'll block it with the money he made off this deal. If you hit Reebok, Dana loses Reebok and any sponsor looking to take its place will be hesitant because of the backlash unless they offer a fair deal.

    I agree with this one hundred percent. Well, except for the FU** YOU.

    I started a thread like this and got no response. If there are even a handful of us who want to do something maybe we can get the ball rolling.

    So many of you don't understand why you think you're disgusted with the "Reebok deal"

    lol my girlfriend works at a club and every other weekend she has new stories for the bouncers and DJs about what stupid shit is happening in the UFC now. They're always flabbergasted and tell her what she's saying is too crazy to be real, then they google it on their phones and shake their heads in disbelief.

    The week the Reebok uniforms were unveiled they thought they already had the inside scoop on the ugly-ass uniforms and were stunned to learn that the UFC can always be stupider as she informed them about Giblert, the fact that the fighters can have one non-Reebok sponsor on their clothes but the money goes to the UFC, etc.

    She's not a fight fan, but the Reebok deal really pissed her off because she's training to be a competitive fitness model and she knows how vital sponsorships are in a sport where there's little money in actually competing.

    I'm glad my baby listens to my random nonsense.

    I hate reebok(deal) as much as the next guy, but this isn't reeboks fault... they saw a good deal; they took it... I simply wont purchase any of the kits.

    I've sent Reebok a few tweets letting them know how much the deal screws over the UFC fighters.

    They haven't responded so I believe they get what I'm talking about.
