Rampage: UFC won't let me wear Reebok in the cage


Rampage Jackson: My reasons for wanting to leave the UFC is still the same. Matchmaking is just one of the reasons. It's nothing about money. I've done this interview several times before and don't want to go into it. I have a new reason. I'm sponsored by Reebok and UFC says I can't wear Reebok in the cage. Stupid stuff like that. It's not about money, it's about respect. I'd rather take a money cut to go to another show and get appreciated. I'm sponsored by Reebok, just not allowed to wear it in the cage. I can't wear Reebok while I fight.

I think in my opinion, the fighters do a lot for the sport and we're not taken care of well enough. I feel like they're getting rich off of all of us. We're having surgeries and injuries and some of these guys can't afford to pay sparring partners and stuff like that. I don't want to be a part of the sport like that. I want to go where they treat their fighters like human beings.

So how do you feel now that Dana white has on video said thay the ufc will not approve Reebok. The UFC is not officially sponsored by Nike, but they're definitely playing the game. You were wrong.

you just dont understand bro, i cant help you   ObamaCare -  "and you're all getting worked up over a few words from ariel no telling what else was said"         half the people in this thread read the OP/tweet and immediately started trashing rampage. i said everyone is getting wild over 1 tweet from ariel, and there is no telling what else was said you say ariels tweet was a direct quote it was not a direct quote, didnt even have quotations and as i said, he said plenty more than just ufc wont let him wear his reebok so, your reply to me saying everyone is bashing rampage over 1 tweet from ariel - "uh, it was a direct quote" - isnt even a valid response.

Some of you will be silenced soon. Why all the rampage hate? Yeah he complains a lot, yeah he hasn't finished anyone recently..but the dude brings it every time. Hopefully it will be a great fight.
