You won't be seeing Dan Hardy in TapouT gear in the future.
UFC welterweight Dan Hardy, a long-time endorser of TapouT gear, has had a change of sponsor. According to Hardy's twitter account he's moving on to Tito Ortiz' Punishment Athletics. Hardy accused TapouT of becoming "the Corporation".
TapouT was purchased by Authentic Brands Group last September.
Here's what Hardy tweeted:
"@JakeHughez have you switched sponsorship now then? Always had you down as a big TapouT guy - I was but TapouT aint TapouT anymore.
"@wharniE8 tapout isn't tapout? What do u mean? They sold out or something? - Ownership changed,ethics changed. They became the corporation.
