    which ones- the red ones or the ones that everyone one wears in the UFC. I like sprawl but wouldn't want to get any cos everyone else has them- wanna be an individual with my own style

    They are not Armani but Armani don't make fightwear so I'll go with shorts made for fighting over shorts that are en vogue.

    nogi right now makes the best looking pair of shorts. I don't like the Sprawl shorts because the material feels weird to me and everybody at our gym wears them. They are well made though.

    I like them, but I'm really looking foward to the new XFGear shorts comming out. The Nogi are definitaly pimp and I would definitally sport a pair outside of training.

    I see a Sprawl backlash becuase they are so ubiquitous nowadays. I think Tapout has some of the worst designs though some are decent as well. I want some damn Inspirit shorts but I'm sure I'll dislike them as well if they break the US.

    I like the look of the Nogi better (usa Nogi) but I own several pair of Sprawls and have no intention of switching. Sprawl looks good and I have absolutely no complaints about their function. Their service is what sets them apart, far apart.

    It does seem like everybody uses Sprawl but I don't care that I look like everybody else. I set myself apart by getting my ass kicked with style.

    I wish they would come out with a few more colors. Sprawl rocks.

    Hmm.. they are alright.. I wouldn't wear them outside of classes though. As far as looks, both NoGi companies make nice designs with good quality.

    I don't like the way they look either, it's the yellow stitching I think.

    I personally don't have a problem with them. They look fine. Like i've worn them out to the beach, the gym and stuff.

    But hey, to each his own.

    I think they're terrible...all board shorts.

    What about board shorts says fighting to anyone here?
    For all the teenagers who like this sort of thing I don't mean any offense, it's just a question.

    I'm old school though...hell if I fought in Japan I'd probably wear Minowa booty shorts.
