UFC fans on social media are upset after hearing the news that the fighters won’t be able to make money after the company’s new shoe sponsorship deal.

UFC in January 2022 announced that they signed a multi-year deal with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson’s Project Rock brand to become the Official Footwear Partner of UFC.

UFC athletes and their corner team members were asked to wear Project Rock shoes during events.

Reportedly athletes who were asked to wear the brand items won’t be getting paid for the sponsorship deal.

Fans have voiced their displeasure after the report became public and some even called the UFC president Dana White a “slavemaster”

Some fans even suggested that the fighters should all come together and form a union if they want to be treated better.
