MMA Quick Quote: Reebok fight kit make UFC look like a cult

Jason Silva-USA TODAY Sports

"I couldn't imagine myself just all Reebok'd out. I haven't worn Reebok since the old-school hardcore days back in like high school. Reebok is not my thing. And like I said, just looking around, everybody is dressed in the same thing, I feel like I'm part of a cult or something."

The former Light Heavyweight champion says he's thankful his promotion doesn't require him to walk out in Reebok attire from head to toe.

Question is: Is it worse being part of a cult, or the Power Rangers?
