File this under "You had one job."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently partnered with sneaker and apparel giant Reebok, which means athletes competing under the ZUFFA umbrella will be compensated for wearing specialized uniforms to the Octagon, starting with UFC 189 on July 11, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
