Pic: UFC contender defies Reebok takeover, dumps sneakers in trash

Why burn a bridge when you can just nuke it?

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight contender Myles Jury, who fights Anthony "Showtime" Pettis at the upcoming UFC on FOX 16 event on July 25 in Chicago, Illinois, will be subject to the new Reebok uniform deal when it takes effect this summer.

And to show his love for the sneaker and apparel giant, "Fury" threw his kicks in the trash.

Alrighty then.

Jury didn't elaborate on his issue with Reebok, but this recent Tweet probably won't sit well with the UFC brass. He's certainly not the first mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter to poo-poo the sponsorship overhaul, but the once-beaten lightweight does not have the same clout as this guy.

Maybe he's miffed over this?
