Re: UFC Moves on Fighter Sponsors
Claudale, this is big time business. The days of Mike's tire barn and Spanky's XXX sponsoring fighters is going the way of the dodo. Don't get me wrong, those brands are great, however, if we're going to see giants in there sponsoring the fighters and the UFC, Mr. Dana White has to up the ante and make sure that all operations are handled in a professional manner. Keep in mind who some of these fighters are that bring in these sponsorships. We have felons, substance abusers, dead beat dads, criminals of all back grounds and of questionable character and these are the guys that we expect to land big time sponsorship deals? No, we need a professional team in there that knows what they're doing and thats for both the better of the fighters and the UFC as a whole. I applaud this business model and hope it comes to fruition.
