Report: JDS in negotiation with Nike

by Alfredo Reyes | source:

UFC Heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos is reportedly in negotiation with Nike. The sports shoe and apparel giant already sponsors UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva. JDS sponsorship would give the company a lock on all division champions from 185 up.

If both sides come to an agreement, Dos Santos will become the third UFC fighter to be sponsored by popular shoe and apparel company, joining the ranks of UFC champions Jon Jones and middleweight champion Anderson Silva.

Sports giant Nike is currently in contract negotiations with UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos to sponsor the champion in his upcoming blockbuster rematch with former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez.

Dos Santos contract with his main sponsor, Pretorian, has expired, and after negotiations, both parties mutually agreed to move forward separately.

Nike quickly contacted the popular heavyweight and brought him in to headquarters for negotiations.

Dos Santos has been spotted wearing only Nike clothing.

It's nice to know that Junior will be wearing a Nike dress when Alistair makes him his wife.

I heard about the signing after. Not sure if it was signed before or after. I do agree but I would say it depends. Negative publicity is still publicity. But I am sure there is a pretty low tolerance unless your Jon Jones. Drinking and driving is pretty bad stuff. Not hating on Jones because we all make mistakes. It's pure luck I am not in prison for some of the stupid things I did when I was younger.
