Brian Stann, Anthony Pettis, Urijah Faber and Carlos Condit are the choices to join Jon Jones, Frankie Edgar and Cain Velasquez as Team Metro Fighters. The results will be revealed December 8th during the UFC on Fox 5 event on the network.
No word on what impact the pending T-Mobile acquisition will have on Metro PCS but this promotion is a nice piece of activation for one of the UFC’s official sponsor. The reveal takes place on the next network appearance for the UFC which will provide some good exposure for Metro PCS. There are no real underdogs or favorites with the fighters competing for the sponsorship as all have major deals.
