    I think the audio is messed up. I couldn’t hear the interview over the sound of Tito and Randy laughing their asses off.

    I guess we’ll find out if this is legit after Nate Diaz fights. If he doesn’t make more money, he’ll be bitching like a woman that just got cheated on.

      He will be bitching no matter what happens. Don’t you know Diaz Brothers already? .-.

      Didnt he already bitched about it on his Twitter?! Im pretty sure he said F*** Y** Reebok!

    Hard to believe that UFC won’t profit somehow off of that…but if they don’t, that’s great because more money will go to the fighters. But we have to wait and see if that’s the case.

      well, I still dont believe it.

        Neither do I. They have to have SOME way, if not direct then in-direct to make some coin off of it. There is no company in the world that would give their workers more money for no reason at all without company benefiting off of it more than workers are. That’s not bashing UFC – that’s telling how things work in the business world. And its still not bad – as long as fighters will really benefit off of it too. Because thats the point of this whole thing. I could let UFC benefits off of uniforms slip, if fighters situation will get better.

      They can benefit from giving all the money to the fighters. It is a perk for fighting in the UFC. Just like a normal job, we people consider a job offer they will consider the overall package, not just the salary.

      • Seth

        Maybe and I really hope that’s the case here.

    Funny, didn’t Rampage have a huge falling out with the UFC over his Reebok deal? Now here we are haha. F**kin’ Zuffa.
