Anderson Silva Signs With "9ine" - Sports Marketing Company

This Fan Post was promoted to the front page by Nick Thomas.

One of Anderson Silva’s main complaints from back in the days was the lack of Brazilian companies willing to sponsor MMA fighters. This was mostly due to the mentality in the country that did not view MMA as a legitimate sport. But things are changing, the UFC is coming to Rio, and companies are taking notice (pure speculation on my part).

Anderson Silva has been signed to a long-term contract with 9ine, a sports marketing company co-owned by one of the greatest soccer players; Ronaldo Fenômeno.

The first project will have the champion wearing the Bozzano logo (a hygienic product company) on his shorts during the Belfort fight; this will pay the champion R$170,000.00 (around $100,000.00 USD) for that fight, which was negotiated by 9ine.

"9ine wishes to work with a small group of elite athletes and companies, this is the case with Anderson Silva, one of the best competitor's in MMA in the world" commented Ronaldo, who goes on to say this will be the first deal of many to come for the champion.
