1. Why is UFC implementing this new policy?
UFC has partnered with Reebok, a major global footwear and sports apparel brand, to create a unique, iconic and consistent look for our athletes, reflective of their dedication, athletic superiority and determination.

In November 2007 the Fight for Peace London Academy was established in the borough of Newham. Fight for Peace supports 2,500 young people each year and is now advising a network of charities across the world on how to make similar frontline projects work successfully.

26. Who can athletes contact with additional questions?
For additional questions, athletes should refer to the contact information listed in the 2015 UFC Athlete Outfitting Policy.

I may be in the minority here, but the more I hear about this, the more I like it.
Some people are trying to portray it as another UFC power grab, but it sounds more and more to me like a good move in further legitimizing the sport and streamlining the apparel process.
Nothing I've seen about this seems unfair to the fighters in any way to me.

"They be like, "Oh, that Gucci Reebok - that's hella tight."
I'm like, "Yo - that's fifty dollars $100 for a T-shirt."
Limited edition, let's do some simple addition
Fifty dollars $100 for a T-shirt - that's just some ignorant bitch (shit)
I call that getting swindled and pimped (shit)
I call that getting tricked by a business"

Is that just the sponsor pay?
I assumed that is ontop of whatever they would get paid by the UFC.

Yes, just sponsor pay.

I was reading some fighter quotes, and it sounds like the lowest tiered fighters are making out comparably to when they were getting their own sponsors, but pretty much everyone else is getting screwed.
Also, I just read an interesting statistic:
About 61% of contracted UFC fighters are in the lowest range, which means only 39% of the fighters will be paid anything higher than the absolute minimum. The way the math apparently works out, only $7 million of the reported $70 million deal is going to the fighters.
So much for Dana's claim that "virtually all of the money goes directly to the fighters".

I don't think this does much for the guys on the top or bottom of the ladder but I think this will send several guys in the middle (Ceronie, Bader, Brown, ect.) Who do not get the big purses but can generate a lot in sponsorship revenue to Bellator.
