    Joanne Calderwood got paid $2500 for her last fight. Her 'fight worn' sports bra from that fight is now being sold on the UFC store website for $1250. What % of this does Joanne see? Do fighters have to opt-in to this creepiness?

    The whole point of the Reebok deal was to become a more mainstream and respectable sport.The Houston Texans aren't selling JJ Watt's used jock strap. In fact they'd consider it to be beneath them. Please UFC don't demean your fighters this way. If someone wants to be buy Mark Hunt's stained shorts for $5000 then god bless them. But the UFC should be above this.

    Oh, by the way

    1) She got paid $8k (maybe more) plus win bonus plus reebok money, plus $50k fotn bonus = $70-100k approx

    and

    2) its not a sports bra, its the top that goes on top of the bra, like a, well, a top

    That is disgusting if it's true.

    Anyways, the deal does state that athletes get a piece of the backend sales of their merch, so you'd have to assume that she'd get a little bit of this.

    What I find strangest is that it stated in the original deal that fighters had to surrender a piece of their gear that they wore to the ring to the company of this sort of thing, but it specified no underwear!

    I think 3000 bucks for Shogun pants is the height of creepy shit.

    In no way is that not hilarious. Not particularly as offensive as it may look, at least in theory, seeing as "fight-worn" gear makes all the sense in the world for UFC merch.

    If the fighters aren't getting merch. cuts from the use of their gear and likeness however, that's awful.

    It is simple, UFC is a joke. Dana White is a clown who only cares about money in his pocket, that is some creepy shit...would be like selling jock straps or underwear like you said...save that for porn lol. UFC is such a joke, turning this into beyond WWE...why I won't even go out anymore, I refuse to give a single cent to these slimes.

    Sports memorabilia business, learn about it. Just because YOUR brain goes automatically to creepy doesn't make it creepy. It just makes you creepy.
