Alexander Gustafsson : "this reebok deal isn't going to help the fighters"

Post by Longtime Fan on Wed Sep 23, 2015 9:25 am

And yet another fighter is coming out and publicly speaking against the reebok deal. Props to Alex. I posted our open letter to his Facebook, he knows what time it is.

“Pay the fighters a lot more money,” Gustafsson said. “For all the hard work and the sacrifices fighters generally do to fight, I think they’re a little bit underpaid. The same thing with the Reebok deal, too. I don’t have anything negative to say about it. I just think, why take away from fighters who haven’t established themselves in the organization? They have a hard time already, so why take away the small sponsors so they can pay the rent and pay their bills? Why take that away too? Really squeezing that last money from the fighters that haven’t been established yet. I think it’s sad to see.”

“Of course (it makes the sport less attractive),” Gustafsson said. “It’s hard as it is. Some of them don’t have a choice, they have to do the sport to survive. Some of them don’t. But I still think that the more support you can have from local sponsors, the more time you have to put in the gym and the more the sport will develop. It’s just that this Reebok deal is not going to help the fighters.”

Yeah, the fighters are getting screwed over, even many of the top guys probably.

I noticed the avatar upgrade.
