Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has a global appeal and there’s no arguing that. The Great One entered into a historic partnership with UFC back in January 2022 and that excited fans of the sport.

The deal made Project Rock athletic-wear the official footwear of the mixed martial arts promotion. The Rock hyped up the deal big time on his Instagram and Twitter accounts as well.

The deal may be beneficial for The Rock’s brand and UFC but UFC fighters won’t get any cut from the sponsorship, and that is not sitting well with many performers including Terrance McKinney, who recently called out The Rock and the UFC on Twitter.

“Hey brotha The Rock if you’re a fan of what we do make the deal favorable for the ones modeling your shoe I get it’s not your fault or your business doin it to us but show us the love you think you are. Get in our corner and support us.”


As of this writing, The Rock hasn’t responded to McKinney’s comments on Twitter. Keep reading Thirsty for more from the world of sports and entertainment.
