    Obviously they went away long before Reebok came along, but at one point they were probably the most popular brand outside of Tapout. Plus they definitely had the coolest hats of any MMA company ever. Fuck I even had a Warrior Wear backpack in high school. When I took it took it to rasslin practice, this redneck kid on the team would always say "Man I want that Warrior backpack!"

    It's just weird to me how they suddenly died off when brands like Bad Boy really started picking up. My friend who used to be sponsored by them said he heard they got bought by Tapout but I could never verify.

    Also off topic but fuck the Tapout haters too. They made some amazingly quality shit that lasted forever compared to most brands. I always dug them...even if fat kids who wanted to look tough wore the shirts everywhere.

    Sean Sherk and Tim Sylvia used to wear the shorts

    I was never in to them or tap out.

    I had a pair of sprawl shorts. Those were great and low key.

    Damn they actually got some nice shit I'd wear. Is that actually them revamped or a different company?

    Also I like that backpack eh, it's low key as hell compared to this little gem I thought was so cool at 16 :D

    Yeah when it came to MMA style shorts, Sprawl was as good as anyone else. I just wasn't so into their plain look. Then again I wore SilverStar and Xtreme Couture shirts so my taste was meh at best :p

    Goddamned Affliction wanted $50 a shirt compared to $43 from SS and $30 from XC so I had to stick with them knockoffs.

    It's either Dana's or usada' fault, they get blamed for everything.

    I bought an unfortunate amount of Affliction shirts (only what I found at Marshalls for $25 though) and even had a hat, a couple polos, jeans, and a damn leather jacket. Most of that has gone away but I've still got a couple of the less "look how badass I am" shirts and I couldnt bring myself to get rid of the jacket haha. I still wear the one Warrior shirt I got and any of my Tokyo Five stuff is fair game still. I only had training gear from Tapout, but most of it died except one pair of shorts. Im not proud of how bro I was in my early 20s haha
