    Love the fight kits! I think it's good for the image of the sport, all the money goes to the fighters, and the athletic performance of the apparel speaks volumes.

    However...

    I want a Dana White fight kit. There, I said it! He's easily one of the most recognizable figures in the UFC, he fought for State wide MMA legalization, and he's not afraid to speak his mind.

    There should be a "UFC Heritage Edition" for Reebok fight kits, so that we can buy fight kits featuring guys like Gracie, Shamrock, Liddell, Sakuraba, Severn, Couture, and even Dana White and Lorenzo Firetito.

    Reebok, I'll be sending you my invoice. You're welcome!

    I like the heritage idea, they would sell.

    But all in all, any clothing deal with the UFC is bound to fail regardless of what they do. The Reebok deal is awful and is icing on the cake. But you only need to look at our recent sponsor history to see its impossible.

    TapOut, a company that sponsored and supported more up and coming fighters, small promotions, and the sport in general for longer than any other company, was generally hated and despised by the MMA fanbase.

    MMA fans simply cannot stomach seeing other people dressed to support MMA.

    Were some of those t shirts fucking awful?

    Yes. But the hate for that company without a restrictive unfair UFC deal in place was epic....

    Now add any successful corporate deal in the mix and you have a recipe for disaster.

    Its the fanbase, we are awful.

    Tapout was the shit. It's like having a blackbelt through the UFC. just wearing it, people will automatically assume you train UFC

    Has Dana actually worn anything made by Reebok since the deal was finalized?

    What's wrong with that? The word "white" is bad these days? Black racists and white apologists are lulzworthy.

    edit: i'd wear a Dan Blanco kit.
