Josh Thomson has weighed in on the new partnership deal between Logan Paul and the UFC, which will see his Prime sports drink become an official sponsor.

During episode #331 of the Weighing In podcast, Thomson and 'Big' John McCarthy spoke about the new deal and what it could mean entail. He questioned where the Prime-UFC deal leaves Monster now that Paul's brand is the official beverage partner.

He said:

"Jake is attacking Dana {White}, Logan's like, 'You know what, let me jump on the Dana White bandwagon, creates us a bit more controversy and it's me versus my brother and see what I could do.' So good for him. Congratulations. I wonder where that leaves Monster." [1:17:09 - 1:17:23]

The former Strikeforce lightweight champion also brought up that Dana White was basically hinting at a deal. He mentioned that the UFC President had been seen drinking the product in public, saying:

"I didn't know it was going to be the official drink {Prime}. I thought maybe they'd share it with Monster, but I think if Monster is out, Prime is in...You could kinda tell because Dana had been drinking it quite a bit in public, yeah, so you kinda could tell there was something going on with that." [1:16:43 - 1:17:01]

Thomson complimented 'The Maverick' for still being able to build business relationships regardless of whether his brother isn't on good terms with whoever he is dealing with.
