Liz Carmouche Campaigning To Become Nike’s First Known Gay Endorsed Athlete

Jon Jones recently released a series of signature items by Nike.

Anderson Silva and Junior dos Santos also have deals with the company.

However, one more fighter could be joining those ranks, as Liz Carmouche is campaigning to fill the spot of a gay athlete with the clothing and shoe giant.

In a report by Bloomberg, Golden State Warriors president Rick Welts let it be known that he heard Nike was looking for an openly gay athlete. Welts is gay, and told the site “they made it clear to me Nike would embrace it.”

Carmouche jumped all over that, taking to Twitter to try and convince people to allow her to become that person.
