Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Fabricio Werdum posted a photoshopped picture of himself wearing a Nike Fight Kit to the octagon on Social Media. It got him in a lot of hot water with the company and now he claims that the UFC has suspended him without pay of all his spanish broadcasting duties. Check out his post explaining the situation and translation below.
“I just want to make everything clear about my post of Nike and Reebok. I did this to protest about the sponsorship,. Before Rebook got into UFC, all the fighters use to do a lot of money with other sponsors, including me, and now they paying me only $5,000 per fight. I didn’t get penalized because I have to contract with them, but they cut me out of the TV broadcast #UFCnetwork.”
