Jon Jones ain't got nothing on "12 Gauge."

Paige now joins the aforementioned Jones, UFC women's bantamweight titleholder Ronda Rousey, lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, former welterweight kingpin Johny Hendricks, and Conor McGregor, as fighters to receive sponsorships from the famous sports apparel brand.

UFC signed a landmark uniform deal with Reebok last year that was met with mixed reviews, to say the least. That's because the new partnership will pretty much do away with sponsors at UFC events, which means plenty of fighters will be getting less coin come fight night.

But, for those fortunate enough to get solo sponsorship deals or even be ranked in the top 15 of their respective divisions, the deal could prove to be quite lucrative.

Paige will next step foot inside the Octagon to face Felice Herrig at UFC on FOX 15 on April 18, 2015 in Newark, New Jersey.
