Pettis joins Team Wheaties

 

Part of getting the UFC main stream is gaining new 'blue chip' sponsors for itself and athletes. The UFC has acquired advertising partnerships with Harley Davidson and some athletes have global sponsorship deals with Nike and Reebok. 

Today the cereal brand 'Wheaties' announced that lightweight champion Anthony Pettis would be joining the team, which is great to see for fans of the sport:

The announcement came today via the official Twitter for Wheaties, but no other details of the partnership have been announced.

Well, they were successful at one thing. Until I seen this, I thought they had gone out of business in the 80's.

I think its great that wheaties is sponsoring fighters. Im just curious to know gow they are still in business.I work at a grocery store. I dont think ive ever stocked a case of wheaties and in 6 years I honestly cant remember ringing up more than a couple boxes.My guess is theyre owned by post or kelloggs and theyre being propped up

Wheaties are horrible for you. Shit grains, sugar, salt, and corn syrup are the 4 main ingredients. Breakfast of Champions, my ass. Fuck Wheaties.
