While the future of Reebok appears to be up in the air, the sneaker and apparel company may soon reel in a big fish.

According to, Reebok is in talks with UFC light heavyweight champion Jon 'Bones' Jones, who lost his lucrative Nike deal following a media day brawl with Daniel Cormier back in August. After an injury forced a postponement of the September bout, Jones will return to the octagon against Cormier in January.

The report also states that Jones is in talks with other companies, but singles out Reebok as the leader of the pack. If Jones does sign, he'll join fellow MMA stars Anthony Pettis and Johny Hendricks on the Reebok roster.
