Here is all there Youtube videos. Tools. Anyway, just roll through and dislike all of them. Get there dislikes up. They suck. Gingrich is doing his best to hide this.

TexDeuce - Did anyone from here talk to him?

I told him to fuck himself. He will actually talk to you.

Dislike this video, but go to the comments and see Mark Gingrich (CEO) trying to be someone else and flame me. The videos he has liked in the past point to it being Mark. Pathetic attempt.

Took me a while to get through that. That is some fucked up shit right there. Cool that Ariel confronted him on it. UG mob doesn't fuck around when it comes to backing the fighters. I'll never buy shit from this yahoo. I will spread the word, as well. <br /><br /> The only reason the guy is paying up is because of the heat that was brought upon him. Fuck this guy. <br />

Mark, is that you?
 
FYI, Rick told us he has never had a written agreement with any of his sponsors and most are longterm ones he's had since his judo days. Most managers I know say they all at some point or another do verbal agreements. Emails also consitute as a contracts.

LOL! From that video:

 

"I truly feel that this company and this brand is personified by what I do."

 

I believe him.

One thing that made me scratch my head a bit as to why he would be so brazen:

During our initial conversation while trying to convince Rick to wear his shorts, the guy clearly told us that he took Hayabusa's fight shorts to a factory in China and had them copy them. He said he did the same with their hoodie.

I guess he didn't know how tight the MMA community is. Luke Harris, who is one of the owners of Hayabusa is one of my PR clients and a friend. I've done some stuff for him for his gym. Rick trained with him during this camp and knows Luke from judo (Luke was on the Canadian national team). Maybe the stereotype is true that Canadians all know each other. Regardless, what an idiot he is. I told him in one of our email conversations of my relationship with Hayabusa and he said that he isn't worried as they can't copyright a hoodie or shorts design.

He also told me that he would welcome a lawsuit because the free PR would make him rich. Wonder how many people bought stuff from him yesterday. A few people who ordered stuff because of Rick's affiliation reached out the past two days to let him know they put a stop payment on their orders. Karma's a bitch.

 This guy sounds like a genius=) Awesome that folks buying as a result of Rick are putting a stop payment on their checks/orders as well!

Just got an email from Sherdog letting me know they will be running a piece on poor Mark's side of the story and that they would love to talk to Rick and I for a rebuttal piece. I guess saying no would kill the he said, she said series they're planning. Maybe I should release the tapes I have.

Not that it matters at this point since no fighter would ever do business with them, but HTFU is officially banned by Bellator, too.

I wouldnt do a rebuttal piece, no reason to. 

If I were you I'd collect the check and let ride whats already out there.

For a guy who says he'll never give up it seems like he's tapping out to life.

Man--Mike, your posts are not helping, in my opinion.

You had questions about the guy's ethics and integrity going into the relationship, but proceeded anyway? 

Then after the fact, reported what you were told to others, presumably after getting paid?

That is kind of weak.

Get Rick paid, in the future get clear emails detailing the arrangement at bare minimum, and move on.  Continuing this campaign isn't helping.
