Can't wait for TDK's response to this news. Although he'd have every right to feel salty.

I don't really have a problem with it, after all, this is typically what is worn by fighters on TUF. Jones appears to be the new posterboy while GSP is on hiatus, and this fight will have a lot of eyes watching.

Big ups to JBJ for this and probably getting a nice wad of cash from this whole thing, but I don't think its right for the UFC to be sponsoring its own fighters. When you sponsor one out of how many fighters? just doesn't look right in my books.

THIS.

Going to make any fight with a UFC sponsored fighter seem shady.

I really dislike Rashad, but this really isn't fair for him.

Ha I wonder how the conversation went about this. "hey jon, we would like to sponsor you and pay you X, all you have to do is wear these shorts and this shirt." Did Jon actually have any option at all but to say yes? I mean if he says no its like "ok we will just take it out of your paycheck"
