WestCoastMexican -  I wouldn't want to pay him either after that performance think about sponsoring someone and then they get there ass kicked making your brand look bad.

Now of course he has to pay him this is a sport were you never know what will happen. I understand why he wouldn't want to pay him but it's mandatory to pay the person your representing regardless of how shitty they perform. Phone Post

The sponsors aren't paying the fighters to perform a certain way. They pay the fighters so that they will wear their logo. Nothing more, nothing less.

It's pathetic that this sponsor would think that Rick owes them anything more than to wear the brand logo on TV.

So he got this sponsor exposure, but because of the result he wasn't paid??

That's some frucking bullshit!! If sponsor hasn't been named yet... they need to be :(

They have been. Mark Gingrich at HTFU. Phone Post

How is this confirmed? Be careful with this shit man, if it wasn't HTFU (and I see neither Rick Hawn or his manager confirming which company it is yet), then you jumping the gun could be detrimental.

I have been saying this but some people are determined to fuck Rick over and just go on attack mode right away.

It isn't a contest to see who can guess the sponsor correctly - we need to know as a matter of fact before we start talking shit. Anything less would be slander and could fuck Hawn over big time for sponsors in the future.
Making a thread on the UG about a sponsor and not naming but giving all the details wasn't the best idea. :/ Phone Post

Some real dirty shit right there. I'll be glad when we find out who the sponsor is. Do believe they'll be having the word "regret" redefined for themselves.

Maybe they can't tell us who didn't pay, but would a list of sponsors that DID pay be out of the question? Ol process of elimination can be a motherfucker.

I think this is complete crap. A sponsor sponsors a fighter knowing he may win or lose the fight. There are no guarnatees in fighting. But the fighter does his/her part by going out there and putting it all on the line and ofcourse agrees to wear the sponsors logo. Its not even so much about the fight but how the fighter carries them selves inside and outside of the cage. I was at the Bellator 85 event and Rick Hawn should by no means be upset with his performance. If his sponsor is then its just a cop out to not pay him for the service he provided.. which was to fight and wear his logo in the fight.  Clearly this sponsor has never stepped inside of the cage. Kudos to Rick for going out there and giving it his all

I certainly hope that once the legal aspects have been dealt with we can be informed of whom this was, because I'd prefer to never give this company any of my money.

Sponsorship is nearly the same as gambling, you're always taking a chance that your "bet" might lose... this person simply thinks they can say "hey I lost, but I want my money back!" What the f*ck kind of sh*t is that? I'm sorry but it doesnt work that way -- unless of course somehow they arranged some sort of contract which specifically stated a "win" was required for payment (which I highly doubt).

Needless to say, this is simply another shinning example of "humanity at its finest" (sarcasm).

Please let us know who/what company this was, because anyone who would act in such a manner is undeserving of our business.

I am 99% sure it is HTFU. I have been watching them delete negative comments one by one from there Facebook site, and blocking everyone who made them. They could have said they didn't do it, but instead blocked everyone. Pretty solid evidence against them.

They have had 10+ posts about it, have deleted every post, and not said anything about it being a rumor. Everyone is also blocked from posting on the page again.

You can email them at: info@htfu.com

He didnt respond to me on Twitter, but that does not mean he's the guy.

 

Take it easy with the hate emails.

The funny things is that whilst the sponsor may not have seen an immediate return from this fight, they will certainly lose business after this even if they do make the payment

Smart business move!
