The future of sponsorships in mixed martial arts dramatically shifted on Tuesday, as the UFC and Reebok announced a landmark six-year deal which will effectively replace in-cage fighter sponsors with a uniform provided by Reebok.

Check out reactions to the announcement from pro fighters both in and out of the UFC below, which we’ll be updating periodically throughout the day.
