Former UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum took to to troll Reebok in the funniest way possible.

Werdum posted a photo of himself in his UFC fight kit (sponsored by Reebok of course) to advertise his upcoming fight. The only thing is, he removed the logo and replaced it with a Nike one instead.

Taking a jab at the UFC's official apparel partner, the caption roughly translates to, "I'm not generic, I'm Nike."

Some athletes spoken out against the Reebok outfitting policy, which replaced personal sponsors with a Reebok backed system. The current payout structure is based on the number of UFC fights each athlete has had, and whether or not it's a title fight.

Fabricio Werdum is set to face Cain Velasquez in a rematch at UFC 207. The two former champions will face off less than a year after their first bout, which saw Werdum defeat Velasquez via guillotine choke at UFC 188.
