The power of a collection of MMA sites continuously banging against a pseduo-nazi company. Captain Planet would be proud. We all combined our rings (I didn’t have the ‘heart’ one, just would like to clarify that) and created an unstoppable frate trane known as the ‘Screw Hoelzer Reich and your Nazi imagery movement’. Much like Godzilla defeated the third reich in WWII, we are somewhat victorious in the battle against Hoelzer Reich. Maggie Hendricks from Yahoo! Sports is reporting that the WEC GM has stated Hoelzer Reich will no longer be allowed to be a sponsor in the UFC or WEC.
World Extreme Cagefighting general manager Reed Harris told Cagewriter that Zuffa fighters will no longer be allowed to wear Hoelzer Reich clothing in their fights. (Zuffa owns botht the UFC and WEC.)
WEC 45 headliner Donald Cerrone had been sponsored by Hoelzer Reich, but withdrew from any association with the company months ago. His image remains on their Web site, but Harris said that Cerrone and his manager are taking steps to have his picture removed. Hoelzer Reich has come under fire for using Nazi-esque imagery in their clothing.
Look, you can be a Nazi. It’s America, I could change my name to General Bison Megatron and make a living spinning porcelain plates on number two pencils. We’re free to do whatever we want, but just keep your racism/hate/nazism out of the greatest sport on the planet. [Source]
