Junior Dos Santos Inks Nike Deal Ahead Of UFC 155 Fight With Cain Velasquez

UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos now has a second thing in common with fellow UFC champions Anderson Silva and Jon Jones.

In following up an earlier report, SporTV out of Brazil has confirmed that dos Santos signed a recent endorsement deal with Nike.

Unlike that of Jones and Silva, dos Santos’ deal is not a global one for the marketing juggernaut. Instead, he will promote the clothing line in Brazil.

Dos Santos is set to face Cain Velasquez this December at UFC 155. The bout will be a rematch, as “Cigano” won the belt from Velasquez in 2010.
