Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza signs sponsor deal with Reebok

July 30, 2015

Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza has signed an individual sponsorship deal with Reebok. The announcement was sent out via Reebok’s twitter feed.

The middleweight contender’s last fight was in April when he easily submitted Chris Camozzi.  He could be in line for a shot at Chris Weidman’s title after Luke Rockhold.  He is currently ranked #2 in the UFC Middleweight rankings.

Payout Perspective:

Interesting signing at this time as Souza does not have an upcoming fight announced.  He is an under-the-radar fighter in the middleweight division and should be in line for a title shot soon.  The signing probably helps the international market as he becomes the first Brazilian to be a Reebok-sponsored athlete.

    A little weird because Chris Weidman is still not an “official” Reebok guy.

    Chris might not want to leave his current sponsor if they are shelling out good money

    @dave Bad Boy may be paying Chris well to stay on. Notably, Venum decided to pay Aldo to stay with them.

    So Reebok is only getting the guys who haven’t been able to get good deals. That suggests they aren’t paying very well…

    The fact so many fighters are turning down reebok to keep sponsors shows the idea of the sponsor ban killing sponsorships isn’t true. If Weidman and Aldo can turn down more than 40,000 per fight. Then their sponsor is paying very well without being able to be on a UFC broadcast.

Got something to say?
