Junior dos Santos to Link Up with Nike?


UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos appears likely to be joining the roster of Nike, according to a report by UFC Tonight. Dos Santos will meet Cain Velasquez later this year at UFC 155: Dos Santos vs. Velasquez II.

Currently, UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva and UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones have contracts with the clothing juggernaut. "Cigano" was wearing a Nike shirt during an interview with the UFC show recently.

The 28-year-old Brazilian recently had his contract with Pretorian expire, allowing him to sign with Nike. Dos Santos defeated Frank Mir earlier this year in his first title defense.
