Rick Hawn Plans To Donate His Extra Sponsor Check To Charity
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.28.2013



In an interview with MMA Junkie, Rick Hawn (14-2 MMA, 6-2 BFC) said that a check from a sponsor (Mark Gingrich of HTFU apparel) dispute for $1,500 will be donated to charity for animals or a homeless shelter. He was supposed to get the money for his fight against lightweight champion Michael Chandler (which he lost) but another check already made its way to him.

Hawn on how Bellator helped him out: "When Bjorn Rebney heard about the whole situation, he was upset about it and he decided that Bellator would cover the total cost of what I was missing,"

Gingrich on how he doesn't think his agreement with Hawn was honored: "I felt that the verbal agreement that we had was not lived up to, (and) I canceled the check based upon that. They made it look at lot worse than it actually was. The company has taken nothing but threats and accusations. My company's image is being jeopardized, all for $1,500."

Hawn on if he lied about the situation: "I never said anything that wasn't true, and this was all factual stuff. The reason why I'm having this discussion is that I don't want people to actually think that's who I really am. If you ask people who have sponsored me in the past, I do what it takes and what I can for them. I'm very appreciative of what they do."
