Source:Junior Dos Santos in contract negotiations with Nike

Seems Junior Dos Santos will become the 3rd UFC fighter to be sponsored by Nike. His contract with his current sponsor Pretorian expired.

Nike aiming to sponsor all the champions?

GSP then Aldo next. Bendo needs another 1 or 2 title defences. Doubt Bantam/Fly weight would ever get Nike sponsors, not really popular divisions. In saying that, feather weight isn't that popular either but Aldo is just that good he'd get the sponsor. Phone Post

What happens when these champions are no longer champions... Lose a fight lose a contract? Phone Post

When I saw him wearing the nike stuff, I knew something was up. Junior is the perfect mma representative, and overall badass. Definetly a good signing by Nike. I dont think Nike is gonna sign all champions only the really bad ass ones like Silva, jds, and chicken bones. Im surprised no big sponsors have gone after aldo, dudes a badass too.

I am just glad this dude is getting the attention he deserves. He is only going to be the most dominant HW in UFC history. Phone Post

RobinHood - Aldo might be viewed as unreliable and possibly a risk. The other guys signed you must admit come across professional, with wholesome family set-up.

Nike aren't taking a risk so it's an easy deal PR wise. Phone Post
They signed Jon Jones. Phone Post

GSP is sponsored by Hayabusa now for his walk out gi and shorts. It's a multi year deal.

Was that before or after the DUI?

but you agree Nike and any big brands want to protect themselves from adverse PR right! Phone Post
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. Phone Post
