Spider visits Nike Headquarters

July 19, 2012

Fighters Only poses the question whether Nike will produce an Anderson Silva clothing line.  Silva was recently pictured wearing a “Silva Knows”  t-shirt as he visited Nike’s main headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon.

Silva has been tweeting his visit and taking pictures.  The Swoosh has sponsored Silva inside and outside of the Octagon for almost a year now and the visit could mean that there are bigger things ahead.

Payout Perspective:

As you may have noticed, Silva’s swooshes were extra big on his walkout attire at UFC 148 just so we all knew.  It wouldn’t be a surprise if we saw signature Silva gear come out in Brazil and maybe in limited quantities in the U.S.  Silva’s meetings at Nike can only mean more endorsement opportunities for Silva and more visibility for the sport on a whole.  Nike is capitalizing on Silva’s dominance in the Octagon and putting out t-shirts would make sense at this point.

    These pictures were taken at the Nike Headquarters in portland, not in Brazil.

    Btw, the Nike Headquartes are in Oregon, but not in portland, my mistake.

    Silva actually was at the main headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon. H/t goes out to reader Lucas for picking this up.

    @Lucas: Beaverton is just right outside of Portland so you weren’t that far off. So, Portland is close enough. 🙂

Got something to say?
