Junior Dos Santos Follows Anderson Silva, Jon Jones With Nike Deals

UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos is expected to become the third UFC champion to sign a contract with Nike, according to a report by UFC Tonight recently.

Dos Santos, who will face Cain Velasquez this December in Las Vegas at UFC 155, had his previous contract with Pretorian recently expire.

Both Silva and Jones have worn Nike gear to their last fights, and it is believed that dos Santos would have the same kind of global deal with the company as “The Spider” and “Bones.”

The 28-year-old Brazilian is one of the faces of the UFC – and one of the more popular fighters in all of MMA. He defeated Frank Mir earlier this year.
