UFC welterweight No. 1 contender Rory MacDonald is the latest fighter to reach an individual sponsorship agreement with Reebok.
Company officials today announced the deal, which goes into effect for MacDonald’s (18-2 MMA, 9-2 UFC) title fight against reigning 170-pound champion Robbie Lawler (24-10 MMA, 10-4 UFC) on Saturday at UFC 189.
The event takes place at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena and airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.
In December, UFC officials announced the promotion had partnered with Reebok to provide fight apparel and uniforms for every athlete on the roster. A select group of athletes such as Ronda Rousey, Conor McGregor, Paige VanZant and others have signed individual sponsorship deals with the company.
