I am in no way a fighter or athletic for that fact, but I like MMA clothing for a few reasons. I watch UFC on tv with my dad regulalry, I enjoy watching the sport. I have a respect for the fighters. I think if you enjoy the sport and know a little about it then you can wear mma clothing. I have always wanted to get some mma shirts in the mall but always was turned away because people might think I am a poser. I understand there are people out there who wear, for example, Pink Floyd shirts but have never heard a song of his. Now that is a poser. If I am wearing a SilverStar Machida shirt, that means I know the fighter and am showing respect for him by representing him. Now if you are wearing a plain tapout shirt, then that means you like the sport in general. I dont think you have to be a fighter or trainer to like the sport or wear the gear. I mean a lot of people like certain football teams and dont really watch it at all and are fat guys. People dont go calling them posers, so why the hate in mma clothing? When you wear the clothes people think you are trying to act like a tough guy...not really, you just like that fighter and like the design. It is a really simple concept that people blow out of proportion.
