Junior dos Santos signs Nike sponsorship deal

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos is the latest fighter to "Just Do It" and sign a sponsorship deal with Nike.

Dos Santos confirmed the news on Tuesday via Twitter, which was originally reported by Fuel TV.

"I want to share my happiness with you guys because now I'm part of team #NIKE biggest sports brand in the world. It's an honor to me Thank God," dos Santos tweeted.

The 28-year-old Salvador, Brazil native becomes the third UFC fighter to sign on with the Oregon-based global sports brand, joining middleweight champion Anderson Silva and light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.

The fighter nicknamed "Cigano" is riding a 10-fight win streak. The 15-1 dos Santos returns to action on Dec. 29, when he meets the man he defeated for the title, Cain Velasquez, in a main event rematch at UFC 155 in Las Vegas.
