Bellator Commentator John McCarthy: \u201cI Love The Fact Lyoto Machida Came Out Wearing Karate Gi Instead Of Stupid Reebok Uniform\u201d Ah, the entrance! The walk towards the Octagon is maybe even the most entertaining part of the whole spectacle. The unusual clothing style is a great way for a fighter to get attention. But UFC\u2019s outfitting deal with Reebok killed the liberality and creativity! It was widely criticized by many fans, fighters, even the commentators. It doesn\u2019t allow the fighter to chase more lucrative sponsorship, nor gives him a chance to wear a custom-designed outfit. Luckily, that is not the case with Bellator MMA, where the veteran referee John McCarthy works as a commentator. "Big" John stated he was very pleased to look Lyoto Machida walking out in his traditional Karate gi. https:\/\/twitter.com\/arielhelwani\/status\/1074163580096995329 Bellator commentator John McCarthy just said this on the broadcast re: Machida: \u201cI love the fact that he comes out wearing that karate gi instead of some stupid Reebok uniform.\u201d Let\u2019s remember, Lyoto Machida was always wearing a traditional Karate gi before the deal between Reebok and UFC was signed. Anderson Silva can\u2019t walk out in his original yellow shorts anymore. Mauricio Rua can forget about his well-known \u201cBad Boy\u201d outfit. During the last few years, UFC\u2019s deal with Reebok is the reason many UFC fighters moved to Bellator MMA. For example, Rory MacDonald thinks the agreement between UFC and Reebok\u00a0was a \u201cbad and disrespectful move\u201d. (h\/t BJPenn.com) \u201cI just think the UFC went about it the wrong way,\u201d former UFC welterweight title challenger Rory MacDonald said of the Reebok deal on the MMA Hour, shortly after moving to Bellator. \u201cThey didn\u2019t really think of the fighters, I don\u2019t think, even though I think they\u2019re trying to make it out like they were. There was no discussion. It was just, okay, this is happening and deal with it, kind of thing. And that\u2019s not very respectful. I don\u2019t think that was a very good move.\u201d Do you support John McCarthy? Do you think Reebok deal was one of the worst moves in the history of UFC?
