Following the apparel company’s new partnership with the UFC, Reebok today announced expanded deals with UFC champions Jon Jones and Ronda Rousey.

According to the announcement, the champs “will be working closely with Reebok to help develop and launch the brand’s new range of UFC apparel, as well as a new collection of footwear and apparel specifically created for the more than 35 million people around the world who participate in combat training to stay fit.”

Financial terms of the deals weren’t disclosed.

The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) has come in for stiff criticism after it introduced a new dress code that forbids female golfers from sporting plunging necklines, leggings or revealing skirts on the course.

Initial reactions were overwhelmingly negative, with Teen Vogue accusing the governing body’s policy of “slut-shaming” female players. The progressive and influential youth magazine also said the code sets players and women in general “way back”.
