I am assuming it's one of these: 


It's not fund-a-fighter. That's an initiative by Faras Zahabi to help fighters get money to train when they are struggling to get started.

Fund-a-fighter is a great thing.

I think I know what sponsor it is, just want to make sure before I say something.

 

The guy seems rather douchey.

IDOHARM - DFX fitness has a picture of Rick directly on their front page, as does Fuji sport. If I was a betting man, I'd say Fuji sport. Phone Post

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 one of the sponsors in the pic I posted on the first page?


Sounds like that fucker was making a bit of a threat....Little does he know that he will feel the wrath of the MMA community as soon as we know who this fucker is......We might argue about MMA all the time, but when someone pulls shit like this, we stand united......Can't wait to know who this dumb prick is, so we can let him know how we feel......Hopefully Bellator and Spike step in.......Blacklist his ass if he does not make it right ASAP......

No it isn't. FS is awesome.

 

I just got succesive texts from the (non) sponsor -- one of him calling me an idiot and another telling me he wants Rick to take down his Tweet and for both of us to get on the phone to work things out and then he'll pay up. We gave him until 5:00 today to reverse the stop payment on the check or face a lawsuit and possible fraud charges.

He told us he doesn't comply with demands. Apparently he does when he realizes that his name will be mud.

Guys, let's not speculate. We want to give the sponsor a chance to pay Hawn his money. He is the victim in all this.

I understand you cant say much about who it is because of said lawsuit, but is there any chance he could be a relative of a former Speaker of the House during the Clinton years? :)

Well if they are sponsoring other mma fighters, rick might want to reach out to them aswell and tell them of the situation.

Maybe they will decide to drop them as their sponsor from a morality standpoint..

best of luck.. and i feel confident rick will get his well deserved money. Phone Post
