According to MMAJunkie, EliteXC has decided to ban fighters from being sponsored by clothing company Affliction.
The move is a reaction to Afflictions decision to start promoting MMA events.
“We don’t really bar anyone…..We don’t want to interfere with the fighters… but this isn’t a clothing company anymore. They’re competition, and it just doesn’t make much sense to help promote the competition.”
“As with any major network event, all sponsors will have to be pre-approved to assure they don’t conflict with presenting sponsors for the event,”
