Oh my how MMA has changed we now have a champion sponsored by a skincare company' date=' what happened to the days when fighters were real men? lol[/quote']

 

All about the $$$ man. I expect going forward we will see more and more top MMA fighters with outside Sponsers. I'm sure Nike is right now trying to figure out how to enter the game. Hard when no one where's shoes, but I fully expect Nike shorts and T-shirts or some thing to show up.

 

Skin care is kinda odd, but I guess if you can make the money why not. I wonder if they sell a type of vasoline.

well actually when he hired Shari as a manager he was skeptical cause she said that he would make more money if he gets sponsors not related to MMA. Usually MMA fighters are sponsord by MMA clothing lines, training equipment companies or Nutritional supplement companies. If you stay inside the box all the time you won't make much money. That's why GSP is raking in the dough.

Thats why gsp is the master of his kraft. It looks like the complete package. I wouldnt be surprised if he probably added some more to it too by now. Gsp seems like a perfectionist. Much props.

 

He did start training his boxing with Freddie Roach this year as well.
