MCGREGOR VS. MENDES

"How long until we look back and say wow men's in the two thousand& 20teens wore their suits way too tight cus I'm ready for that"  -Forrest Griffin

"They can run. But they can't hide."  -Conor McGregor

REEBOK

" this shit sucks!!!!! Not impressed @reebok!!! And you better check that agreement b/c @UFC doesn't have my apparel rights. *2nd @reebok you should be ashamed of the fighter's pay on this deal. It's not good for the fighters & you know it. @bellatormma doesn't TAX sponsorship. #FightersUnion #FightOutYOURContracts"  -Josh Koscheck

"I'd change a lot about designs of forced uniforms, that'd be 1 of'em...would want a blend of RED, WHITE & BLUE flags "  -Ben Henderson

".@Reebok @ufc never once have I been announced as Thomas Lawlor. Thanks for putting the fighters at the forefront of the clothing #smh"  -Tom Lawlor

"If some of the Reebok money went to administration costs for crew in charge of the gear then they got a low ROI at this point. Infuriating"  -Tom Lawlor

"So with this new Reebok deal, does that mean my shirt would say Daniel and not Dan? That would be #Weird..."  -Dan Hardy

"Wow I can't have my name spelled correctly per ufc policy...no ~ over the N in my name. #yourmajesty... @Reebok I'm Mexican your robbing me of having my name correct while I represent my home country. #yourmajesty #vivamexico"  -Angela Magana

"Yo @Reebok my name is BEC.. only my mother can call me Rebecca "  -Bec Rawlings

"About to put on my @headrushbrand fight kit and go to the gym so I can train."  -Dustin Poirier

"Pretty stoked they spelled my name right tbh"  -Stipe Miocic

"$85 for my @Reebok Jersey?! It's safe to say no1 in my family will own one.. Theyve never paid more than $35 for a shirt.. #cheapfamilyprobs"  -Corey Anderson

"My brother @khabib_nurmagomedov wearing the new @reebok @ufc champion hat. He assured me it's only a matter of time, so he doesn't mind wearing it now. He is much more humble now even tho he is waaaaaaay more famous. :)"  -Daniel Cormier
