The business of mma can be a sad thing sometimes. Unfortunately Rick and Jeremy aren't the only fighters who have been burned by sponsors and they deserve praise for coming forward. I want to add that seeing how strong the mma community banded together is the reason I love this sport! Phone Post

We got a text telling us that he would pay up last night if we apologized and Rick took down his Twitter post. Phone Post


Nooooooooooooooooo

 

Well folks, extinguish your torches and put away the pitchforks. Keep em clean for next time

 


We ain't apologizin'.


Why not?  Just apologize, let Hawn get paid, then do an article on the whole mess.  To me, the most important thing is that Hawn get the money he's owed. 

 

Or get on the phone, take down the tweet, get Hawn paid.  If the guyagrees to pay, he is most likely going to require confidentiality, so that takes the write the article after the fact out as an option--most likely.

 

For the amount of money you are talking about, it isn't going to be worth it to hire an attorney, nor is anyone going to want to spend numerous hours in small claims. 

Even if you get a judgment, then you have to attempt to collect--this guy is probably pressed for funds as it is.

Litigation is very expensive, time consuming, and stressful.

Good luck in any event.

Edit--nice--see this was resolved.

"When MMAFighting.com told Russell that Gingrich had decided to pay Hawn after all, Russell said he was pleased to hear the news and would talk to Hawn about whether he would cash the check after all."

WHAT?

Well, if dicking J. Stephens around wasnt bad enough, this Hawn incident has probably cost HTFU a ton of support (from whoever wears their attire) Whatever, I'm not here to judge people on what t-shirt they wear. 

 

Dicking a professional cage fighter around doesnt seem like the best judgement, but to each his own. You reap what you sow HTFU - The fans don't forget.

Fuck that company.  I hope they lose their ass.

It's not like they would have paid Hawn more if he would have dominated the fight and won the championship.

I'm sure he just wants to resolve the issue and move on, but wouldn't Jeremy be entitled to some type of financial compensation since this company is clearly using his image to promote/sell their product?

I have no idea how you would quantify this and most likely this guy is financially strapped, but he's it pretty damn obvious that he's profiting/attempting to profit off of his "association" with Jeremy. Phone Post

With nothing in writing, they are probably saying "We gave you free gear, we are giving you press" or some bullshit like that. I guarantee it. I would like to hear his argument though Jeremy, if you would like to share it.
