    I owned a pair of Bad Boy Legacy 2 gloves actually, and they aren't too bad. They have some nice features. They've released a newer version recently as well.

    Problem is the lack of exposure now though. Out of the MMA brands which are still doing well (like Hayabusa and Venum) it's mainly because they've re-targeted more at kickboxing and Muay Thai.


    What annoys me the most isn't that Reebok took over the UFC, it's that Reebok don't even have any decent MMA equipment of their own.

    what sucks is the styles now in mma gear bjj too the rashguards and shots are so ugly with way to much rap going on japanese anime crap and symbols all over and valetudo shorts are now alot longer than they use to be

    i been looking for a solid dark green pair of valetudo shorts forever im surprised not more gear companys are around even tapout is done :(i just hope to god ufc doesnt sign a deal after 2021 so people can wear gear again

    Wouldn't say it's dead. The guys that did well are still releasing stuff and some good stuff too. Just have to look/remember to look because it's not front and centre in the UFC prompting us.

    I know that if I want sparring gear for example, I'll probably end up going to Hayabusa again.

    It's probably done be a huge favour to be honest. I'm not impulse buying as much. If I need something new, I'm researching and reading reviews etc etc.

    First of all, mma gears are definitely not dead, you just have to do enough research, there are big brands and tons of small brands going on. But either way you could be one of the most bias person around that I have seen, so I guess doesn't matter...

    Lastly, with no meaning to be disrespectful, using punctuation is probably going to let others understand your post a little better.
