    Whats the difference between the long shorts and the board shorts (other than the $10)?

    Believe Ron from SSFGear.com said there is no difference. Would double check with him through PM.

    I think the board shorts are just those, board shorts. It has a heavier material than the long shorts. If you have a pair of real board shorts I think they will give you an idea of what the heavier material is like. Good luck getting a pair, I have been trying for months :(

    the difference is that the longer shorts have more thread, thus they have more shitty stitching which can come loose. XD

    Adino is right the board shorts are board short type heavy material, and the long shorts are very thin & light material.

    Most fighters wear long shorts.

    It does seem that way. I really don't see to many board shorts in the UFC.
