Some potential mock-up uniform images have leaked online…
MMAjunkie reports that a UFC official has denied there is an agreement is in place for a long-rumored uniform deal in the UFC. An image released today on Twitter by user @frontrowbrian showed a set of pictures of what UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman would look like in "before and after" fashion. You can check out the image and tweet below.
According to the UFC's statement, "We continue to speak to many potential partners and will make an announcement when we reach an agreement." And it also read, "We haven't reached an agreement at this time."
UFC officials also reportedly declined to address the validity of the pictures that were online, and only reaffirmed that no deal has been reached and discussions are currently ongoing with many potential partners. Sources close to the situation said that similar artwork has been produced featuring a number of potential partners since the UFC has discussed potential apparel deals. The same sources also insist that as of now, no agreement has been made.
