Johnson’s latest brand collaboration is with plant-based Quantum Energy Squares. As sports nutrition has always been an important factor in his workout routines, he recently also became an investor in the company.
“When the opportunity came to me I couldn’t pass it, especially after trying the bars,” he told Programminginsider.com. I believe in the company and was inspired to be a part of the Quantum movement.”
Quantum has set up a contest in which one lucky fan will win a chance to attend the sold out Denver match. To enter, fans need to follow Quantum Squares on Instagram, and “like” the Quantum Square X Mighty Mouse post, tagging the friend they would like to bring to the fight.
The winner will also receive the brand’s merchandise and a year’s supply of products.
In an interview with ESPN.com last week, the veteran MMA fighter mulled the idea of retirement, but had not made a firm decision yet.
“I’m going to sit down and after the fight I’ll have to divulge more on my train of thought on this stuff,” Johnson told ESPN. “I’m 36 now. I’ve accomplished everything in this sport. The only two things I never accomplished in this sport and, I’ll ride this to the grave, is I never got on a massive pay-per-view with Conor McGregor where I got that ‘red panty night’ where you make $5 to $6 million. And two, I never became a champ-champ.”
Johnson seems to have come to terms with the idea of leaving MMA behind.
“You can’t do this forever,” Johnson said. “So, when I look at my other counterparts, when I look at Khabib [Nurmagomedov], when I look at GSP [Georges St-Pierre], they walked away from the sport but they could have kept on fighting. And that’s the thing, too, it doesn’t have to be on top. I’m at a point in my career where I’m satisfied. I can truly say I’m truly say I’m satisfied. I still train my ass off. I still fight. I’m still good. There just has to come a point in time where you just got to think about that.”
