MMA and UFC fighter Luke Rockhold is currently ranked the No. 5 middleweight fighter on the official UFC Fighter Rankings, and is well on his way to contending for the title. In the mean time, he’s training for his next fight on November 8 against Michael Bisping at Allphones Arena in Sydney Australia, and building up his own personal portfolio of endorsement deals.
Recently, German sports apparel giant, Adidas, announced that they have reached an endorsement agreement with Rockhold, making him one of the faces of their Combat Sports line. Although Rockhold has a long history of using Adidas products to train and fight with in the ring, he credits hip hop performers Run DMC for enticing him to sign with Adidas.
“Ever since Run DMC came out with their shell shoes an Adidas track suits, I was hooked,” said Rockhold. “I can’t imagine a better brand to represent. I’m looking forward to taking over the MMA world with Adidas Combat Sports.”
Adidas is also thrilled to have landed such a bright young MMA star.
“Luke Rockhold is the kind of renaissance athlete a brand dreams of working with,” said Adidas Combat Sports Managing Director Scott Viscomi. “He understands what it means to be professional Adidas athlete, and he does everything we ask of him, in addition to bringing us opportunities. We are honored to have him on the team with Robbie and look forward to working with them as we continue our mission to add value to the USA combat sports market.”
Be sure to catch Rockhold in action on November 8, and watch as he uses Adidas to hopefully take down yet another opponent on the way to a title shot.
