    ..if you wear MMA gear and are not a fighter?

    i'm not talking about rashguards, gloves, tighty fighties or anything like that, i'm just talking about like a KTFO hat or a Chute Boxe T-shirt.

    i do kung fu, so i'm not foreign to the fighting/training scene, i just don't fight unless i have to, and i want to know if people are going to assume the wrong thing if i wear some MMA gear. i view it as wearing something from your favorite sports team, except it's your favorite gym/dojo/dojong.

    thoughts? and please be lenient on the noob, this is a legitimate query.

    I know you're looking for some input from a more advanced belt, but...

    Clothes are clothes, and they're made to cover your body and that's about it. Who cares honestly? Go for it.

    What I'd call a poser is a person who "flaunts" it or pretends or even lies about doing it. A good fan and a fellow practitioner certainly do not pose as a Chute Boxe member :D

    I am a member of chute boxe, whatchu talking about :p. LoL nah we got to support the sport so EVERYONE should be wearing a kick ass MMA hoodie or tee shirt, something! Give back to the sport you love so much! You definitely don't have to be a fighter.

    rank doesn't mean anything to me man, i own and run a busy forum myself (a formula one racing forum), and i don't employ ranks. just because someone has more posts doesn't increase the validity of their post content.

    and thanks for the input everyone. i'll be ordering a few things soon.

    I had acouple of big ones made for Phenom and our Strongman Steve MacDonlad. The real ones will be in hopefully by Dec. These are just prototypes that I want them to test for sizing on the 3xl and 4xl.

    The red and black solid color ones will be in soon.

    I'm 0-2 (1 pancrase rules, 1 submission rules) as an amateur fighter but with the work and training that I've been putting in the 3rd time will be the charm.....then I can retire in peace LOL.....maybe.

    But even if I didn't fight, I support the sport and will continue to do so. Take supercross for example, I have never ridden on a bike but I love the sport. Just like most MMArtists, most riders do it for the love of the sport because, as in MMA, there are not too many riders that can make a living strictly from the sport.

    Anyone who would complain about anybody buying and wearing anything to do with their sport doesnt truly love their sport.

    I don't play hockey...yet I have a Canucks Jersey.

    And I promise you that if Bertuzzi or Linden ever saw me rocking my Nucks jersey around town they would at least give me the head nod of approval / appreciation for my support.

    So no.....posers are people who buy skateboards and use them as fashion accesorys
    Posers are the tourists with 2000 dollar showboard set ups and sit in the lodge all day

    Supporters are always welcome to have some apperal

    you're a fan of the sport,so now,you're not posing.some1 wearing a Fox racing shirt because it's the latest fashion is a poser.Wearing a Chuteboxe or BTT shirt because you love their fighters makes you a true fan,not a poser.

    Well there are a lot of people out there that wear NFL jerseys and have no friggin idea who the person whose name they have on the back of their jersey is. Especially around where I live.

    Does that make them posers? Hardly. A lot of people jsut wear something cos it happens to look good and it's comfortable. It's not that big a deal.
