Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next? Loses UFC Ass-Privileges

(Luckily, Chris Leben has picked up a new sponsor:

Zuffa’s lengthy blacklist of companies who aren’t allowed to sponsor fighters just increased by one very notable name. Brace yourself, fans of responsible sex —‘s logo will no longer be gracing the backs of any UFC/WEC fighters’ shorts. From CondomDepot marketing director Jennifer Amato, via BloodyElbow:

"Dana White Took Food From The Mouths of Our Sponsored Fighters Just In Time For Christmas! Sorry Spencer, Josh, Gabe, Jake and everyone else…
We have been notified that we have been Banned From the UFC and WEC!
We have provided fighters 100′s of thousands of dollars DIRECTLY over the last 2 years but can no longer do so! Not to mention word came down during AIDS awareness month!!
UFC a Classy Organization runned by an even Classier Guy."

These sponsor-bannings usually result from either personal vendettas (see: Affliction, Dethrone, and RVCA‘s sponsorship of Fedor Emelianenko) or the UFC’s understandable desire to present their brand in the best possible light (see: Hoelzer Reich). It’s not clear if anything hostile happened behind the scenes between CondomDepot and Zuffa, but you have to admit that the phrase "Condom Depot" on a man’s ass was suggestive in a very unfortunate way. Still, fighters have to feed their families, and the UFC doesn’t always make it easy for them to do so.

"It's not like your market your product to the 9-14 male demographic. Most of us are well above that age ..."

Ehhh, probably physically at least.

Dana White doesn't own the UFC. The UFC is owned by Zuffa, which is owned by the Fertitta Brothers. Dana White owns 10% of Zuffa and is the President of the UFC. He makes pretty much all the executive decisions, but he doesn't have a higher level of ownership than the Fertitta's, not even close.

And hey, on the up side Condom Depot can still sponsor WarMachine's prison shorts! God knows he needs the protection.

Yes, he owns it not the Fertitta's and when have consumers ever been important to a business model?
HeHateMe- December 23, 2009 at 9:35 am
ITS HIS COMPANY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So hopefully now I can get the coveted ass spot for my new company, Tap This!

No, then that would have been Sandy Vagisil.

Catalyst I think they're doing it because they want more legit sponsors. Condom depot is a huge sponsor but at the same time its kind of a joke. They want more mainstream products, I don't mean they're going to get a Pepsi contract but they don't want to be branded as the fight company who is also teamed up with the bulk condom surplus store.

Some of the things Jennifer Amato says are fucking classic.

"Not to mention word came down during AIDS awareness month!!"

Is sponsoring MMA with condom depot going to save anyone from getting Aids? I always thought Spencer, Josh, Gabe, Jake and everyone else simply sported the logo and collected money from a site that sold a shit ton of condoms at a discount price, but apparently they are preventing the spread of sexually transmitted diseases...condom depot really was a beacon of light in a dark world...I hope Dana knows what he is doing, the raw-dogging statistics are about to go through the roof.

I'm wondering if Vagisil sponsors Dana White.
UFC fan- December 23, 2009 at 8:19 am
yeah, and fucking whining about like a 5 year old bitch, now that's professional to right?
Seems to me the way that Jennifer Amato reacts and responds to business shows a good reason to not do business with her.

you guys are hilarious...I love the comments!

Clearly, the Vaseline corporation made Zuffa a better offer.

I totally understand the Hoelzer Reich ban, but Condom Depot? It's not like your market your product to the 9-14 male demographic. Most of us are well above that age and seeing the word "condom" is hardly offensive. I'd like to hear the UFC's reasoning on this one.
TylerDyrden- December 23, 2009 at 7:45 am
i never really liked the condom depot sponsorships. and i still enjoy unprotected it's not like their sponsorships of fighters is resulting in any business from me!
exes.for.iballs- December 23, 2009 at 7:23 am
Dang UFC! How's a nigga 'posed to get payed around this biiiiiatch!?
Swedish- December 23, 2009 at 7:23 am
Goldstein... you are still all caught up on "Hoelzer Reich"? Why?

Please drop it, I understand the personal vendetta YOU might have against such a company but UFC did the right thing with them and banned them in a timely fashion.
shitbag- December 23, 2009 at 7:23 am
Hey, there is no! I know, I just tried, you lied to us! Liars.

I think it's very likely the domain "" was registered under Jennifer Amato's name before they corrected her mistake.
El Famous Burrito- December 23, 2009 at 6:48 am
What is this "AIDS" that I'm supposed to be aware of?
nicey- December 23, 2009 at 6:46 am
pretty ridiculous. i love some of the fights ufc puts on here and there, but moves like this..the cost of their PPV events (how about lowering the price on shoddy fight card ppv's??) are just a few reasons why i wont ever purchase a ppv from the ufc. money mongerers!

This is the company that made my caption contest victory possible. Making a Tiger Woods comment is too predictable, so I'll just offer my condolences to the fighters who just lost a sponsor.
