Zuffa Bans Hoelzer Reich as a Fighter Sponsor

via www.fightlinker.com

Maggie Hendricks gets the story:

World Extreme Cagefighting general manager Reed Harris told Cagewriter that Zuffa fighters will no longer be allowed to wear Hoelzer Reich clothing in their fights. (Zuffa owns botht the UFC and WEC.)

...

It does not matter what the iron cross, SS or any of the other symbols meant before they were used by Nazis, or how brief the association was with Nazi Germany. The evil committed by Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich ensured that those symbols will always come to symbolize the worst of humanity. 

This is good news and I'm very proud of the work that our own Brent Brookhouse did pushing this story along. I'd also like to commend Maggie, Fightlinker, Zak Woods, Middle Easy, the Savage Science and especially the UG community for their coverage of this story. Together we sent a message that there is no place in MMA for those who want to soft pedal Nazism.
