They allowed young fighters a chance to fight... a shot at a dream... Condom Depot, Jesus didn't tap, etc... these are sponsors you see pop up when there is a PPV... they've never invested the time and resources into MMA like TapouT did.

Remove any of the current sponsors from MMA and the sport would still be where it is today.... remove TapouT from MMA and I don't think you could say the same thing.
So they were around from the very beginning, but I'm still trying to figure out, what did they do besides make t-shirts, attend events, and sponsor some fighters? I'm not trying to argue, just looking for clarification since I'm naive.
