Kevin Holland accuses Logan Paul’s Prime of offering shockingly low payouts to fighters to promote the brand

Logan Paul and KSI’s hydration drink brand, PRIME, received some critical remarks from Kevin Holland. In a multiyear sponsorship agreement, the energy drink company was been named the UFC’s official sports drink.

The new agreement will take the place of the UFC’s previous five-year contract with the sports drink Body Armor. PRIME will be shown during UFC pay-per-views and Fight Night events that are televised on ESPN+.

Some members of the mixed martial arts community opposed the UFC’s choice to adopt PRIME as its official sports beverage. Kevin Holland recently exposed the startlingly low fees offered to fighters to promote the brand and questioned Logan Paul’s business.

Ironically, Jake Paul, his younger brother, has been steadfast in his fight for greater fighter compensation and welfare against the UFC and Dana White in particular. In a recent Real Eyes Recognize podcast interview, Holland said:

“These folks declare that they will support fighters, correct? They are all focused on increasing fighters’ pay. To rep [represent] them, these fkers are attempting to send me and other fighters things, but they refuse to pay any fking money.”
Dutch added:

“For a major page post, I believe they offered Oren [Kevin Holland’s manager] something close to $600. Regardless matter whether this was the company, they either offered $600 or nothing at all for a top page article, which is incredibly low.”

When is Kevin Holland’s next fight?

Some truly intriguing matchups have already been confirmed, and the UFC is putting together a fantastic programme for UFC 287. The UFC middleweight championship rematch between reigning champion Alex Pereira and former champion Israel Adesanya is the headline event.

A welterweight fight between former title contenders Gilbert Burns and Jorge Masvidal is also on the schedule. Another exciting welterweight matchup on the schedule, Kevin Holland vs. Santiago Ponzinibbio, has the potential to win Fight of the Night.

Holland is currently in a losing streak of two games. However, his popularity continues to grow as a result of his charismatic personality and exciting fighting style. At UFC Orlando, he last competed against Stephen Thompson and lost by technical knockout. On the other hand, Ponzinibbio ended his two-fight losing run by defeating Alex Morono at UFC 282.
