This $1,500 argument was because Hawn's corner didn't wear his gear.

Well that sure as hell backfired!

He's surely lost WAY more than $1500 in future revenues. Shoulda paid up from jump street.

To be fair, how many people here would have bought any of that stuff he sells?
Never heard of the company until now. Bad publicity is still publicity. I'm sure their website got more hits in 24hrs than it did all last year. Phone Post

I couldn't tell you what the dudes stuff even looks like.

As soon as I clicked on their website, the douchebaggery was so overwhelming I had to immediately leave.

This guy sponsored a fighter to get some MMA fans to buy his gear, now no one will. Bad publicity is just that, bad publicity. This isn't the Kardashians.

I think its time to grab the pitchforks and light the torches.


If I were the sponsor, I would pay the money quickly rather than have the media pick up this story.


When we informed him that we were moving forward with a lawsuit, he told me to think long and hard about that decision because he "knows people."

I told him I know people too, but most of the people I know are in the media.

Is it Mark Grinwich or whatever or the DX fitness people... I must know. Phone Post

IDOHARM -  Also have to enjoy the irony in the founder of a clothing line called "Harden the fuck up" being "incredibly emotional" about the situation. Phone Post

Yep

IDOHARM -  We haven't even gotten into a full blown discussion as to what HTFU means yet. I'll throw some ideas out there.

HTFU: Hawn Tapped, Fucked Up
HTFU: Hitler Tapped For Us
HTFU: Have Tourette's, Failed University
HTFU: Hankering To Fuck Unicorns

There are so many possibilities. I'm personally hoping its the Unicorns. Phone Post

You forgot this one:

HTFU- He'll Totally Fuck U (allegedly, still no confirmation)

Fixed that for you.

I love you all in UG and how you support the MMA community so good.

Good work all. Hopefully "at least" my pictures/name will come down off of his website which has been asked for a very long time.

No problem man. You guys put your lives on the line in there.

One down, one to go. Your pictures will be taken down from his website. Rick got his money back, but we won't let this guy get away with this. This guy is a scum bag and we won't let him save face. Thanks for your info Jeremy!

Big fan BTW, thanks for the post

Take the money and be done with it IMO. Their rep is already hurt and there is no reason to drag it out.

It's so disgusting how it took a lynch mob for a sponsor to pay up.

It should've never had to have gotten to this point. Phone Post

This clownshoe company should not be let off the hook until Jeremy Stephen's pictures & name come down from the website.

What a disgraceful company.

Made me think of the KTFO folks and their douchbaggery.

2) Get attacked by UG mob until you fold

3) ______________

All the best dude. Big fan and it sucks that you guys have to deal with shitbags like this guy.

This is the least we can do. We got your backs on this.
