On this week's MMA Hour, Ariel says that Jones' sponsorship deal is worth 20,000 dollars a year.

If true, Nike negotiated insanely well...knowing that Jones has been talking about wanting them as a sponsor for years and having just received a DUI with two young injured girls in the car. Phone Post

This is what I was just thinking about the other day.  He said it was a dream of his, so it looks like they could have scooped him up for cheap.  Not sure if the 20K thing is true though.  Seems like some shit that Rick's Tire Barn would pay. Regardless of what it is, I would guess that he was happy just to be signed by them.

Not sure when this deal went through, but he was wearing a Nike Air t-shirt in the front row of the Silva/Sonnen fight about 6 weeks ago.

20,000 is nothing to Nike, Burger King gave Anderson Silva what, $150,000 or $200,000 to wear a sticker on his shorts?

 No way that's true. Number seems way to low.

If that's true Jon Jones can fire Malki Kawa right now because I could get Bones at LEAST $25K. I was thinking it was a multi million dollar a year deal, that figure can't be right.

That's laughable. No way. That is unless it's built around royalties. Phone Post

It's at about 7:30 of the MMA Hour. Ariel cites someone close to Jones, possibly Malki, as the one who helped Jon get this deal. Phone Post

 Lebron got 20+ mil before stepping on an nba court. I've read somewhere the nike deal is multi-year, which contradicts Ariel's report (he said 20k 1 year). MMA is small but not THAT small

8:04 of this week's MMA Hour:

"What I heard from one source is that it was a one year deal worth $20,000. One source very close to Jon, by the way. It's not like it's just out of the blue." Phone Post

ufc takes 100,000 fee from the sponsors, right? So its technically a 120,000 dollar deal. news headlines should have been nike sponsoring the ufc.

The deal isn't that bad, I also heard that Jon Jones gets a 50% discount on all Nike products.

nobones -  After manager cut, UFC cut, agent cut i bet he's left with something close to that number for himself. Phone Post

The UFC takes a cut of sponsorship money? Since when?

If this 20k number is true then that is really a huge embarrassment for all of MMA and show us where it really fits on the sports landscape

I would. He admits that he has only one source for the figure who doesn't represent Jones' management, Nike or Zuffa and that it's totally unsubstantiated. It's ridiculous that he went on his show and said it. That's some pathetic "journalism."

I used to think that the Helwani hate was over the top, but between the incessant instigation and shit like this, it's totally understandable.

A source close to the fighter is a legit source, when else has he pulled "shit like this"

Instigation is a good interviewer most of the time. You want him to be the Suzy Kolber of MMA and massage everyones ego?

DANA TOOK 90% OF THAT


Pacquiao signed with Nike for 20 MILLION.   That was in 08 when he wasn't even popular.

Nike could care less. They are all about money. Jones beats people up for a living and is very good at it. Thats all that matters. Phone Post
