    Was interested in this also. I figured they would be tho, seeing as how most people don't even know Sprawl makes these shorts yet.

    You'll have to check in with the specific tourney, but I believe that they are legal. I have a hard time thinking that Sprawl would make something that wasn't - but I could be wrong.

    Well, it's a lot like a wide receiver having stick-um on his gloves. It was initially legal as no one knew about it.

    Today it is quite illegal.

    These have been brought to the attention of several athletic commissions at our request so they are not an unknown.

    I saw them all over at the arnold and a few UFC / WEC fights now so im sure they are aware of the shorts and obviously there is no issue. Also they are some of the lightest...best shorts i have worn thus far.
