Hi guys, first I would like to thank you all for the support, it is very frustrating as a fighter who basically depends on their sponsors money, to not be paid. I would like to clarify that I did not post this with the intention of tarnishing anyone's reputation, I was just expressing my frustration, and I can guarantee that I'm not alone out there.

Please be aware that Venum fight gear is the best company out there, they really take care of all their fighters, they supply me with plenty of great quality gear, they always have my back, and I never had to worry about payment. Also fight decals is owned by a friend of mine and he does the best banners ever and their print work is always impeccable, I have only good things to say about them.

Major's Pharmacy has been a part of my sponsorship team since my first UFC fight. Major's Pharmacy is like a family and they support me even when I have no fights scheduled. Major's Pharmacy is a dream sponsor for any fighter out there. As far as Fear the Fighter which is owned by the brother of a trainer partner you guys know they will always deliver. I am grateful for all my other sponsors that includes Life Pulp, Dr. Paul Biondich, Kleinburg Private Wealth, Tristar, Level IIX, WR and all the past sponsors that always had honored their deal. I don't see the need to mention the name of the sponsor that has not paid all the money owed to me.

Thanks for all the support guys...

Mark is an awesome guy and is a great example of a true martial artist (hard working, humble, respectful, honorable, etc) fighting in the UFC.

Any company would be fortunate to have Mark represent them.

These fighter's rely on sponsorship $ to eat and pay bills- Sponsors are hurting people's livelihood when they withold agreed upon money. What a scummy thing for them to do!

Mark is too nice to mention who it is.

I say the UG figures it out and f*cks them up (in the nicest way possible haha).

Bocek is a class act. This man deserves his money. Also has some of the best grappling in the lightweight division, it's a shame we didn't get to see more of it in his last fight.

Much respect.... Thanks for the note Mark...

 

Anyone want to call

Mark obviously posted on FB that he wouldn't be having them as a sponsor or training there any longer... Given that he complimented everyone else on his shorts for that last fight....

He shouldn't have to rely on his sponsor pay, it should be his fight pay. Lowballing fighters isn't cool. Phone Post

To be clear.. that tapout patch is from

http://tapoutburlington.com/

The Tapout training center in Canada....

Not sure if that is related to the clothing brand? Or how those things work under the tapout umbrella

No pointing the finger or calling out any names. Your post is filled with class as well. For a great point too he shouldn't have to rely on sponsor's pay. Phone Post
