Every fighter who competes under the UFC banner is required to wear Reebok gear in the Octagon on fight night, but some fighters also got separate sponsorship from the brand.
Paige VanZant was one of those fighters who signed a sponsorship deal with Reebok in 2015, but that sponsorship deal has come to an end.
The UFC star would take to Twitter to announce that Reebok decided not to re-sign her to a new deal:
VanZant will still have to wear Reebok fight gear whenever she competes in the Octagon, despite the fact that the sponsorship deal has come to an end. The fighter will compete for the first time since the deal ended at UFC Fight Night Brooklyn, where VanZant faces Rachael Ostovich in a women’s flyweight division encounter.
UFC Fight Night Brooklyn takes place on Saturday, January 19 from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York with Henry Cejudo and TJ Dillashaw headlining. Fightful is going to be providing live coverage of the event, which is streaming live on ESPN+.
