i'm not saying it's a good idea. but i'm also not dismissing it as simply a way to fuck the fighters from money.
You don't see a problem?

Having every spot on your shorts in your possesion, your hat, banner, etc. For you, your management, trainers, or whatever. While still paying a piece to Zuffa for allowing you to represent brands they don't.

To.

Having a small amount of spots dedicated for you, management, etc. While being required to represent brands that UFC will make money off of, and STILL being required to pay a percentage to ZUFFA for allowing you to have outside brands on your shorts.

The issue of individual style, preference, or fighter opinion is beside the point. Which I feel like all three are being overlooked.

Any word on what will keep the two fighting from wearing the same uniform? If people already didn't know the fight seems like that would get pretty confusing.

Will it be like home and away colours?
