    Had a random thought while watching the fights this weekend.

    Is there any rule that anyone is aware of stopping fighters from getting temporary tattoos from paid sponsors that will wash off with time? Fighters get horrible tattoos all the time and it would be a good way to stick it to the UFC if they allowed it/ fighter slipped it in.

    Any info or thoughts on this? Thought it was a pretty good idea but im sure i will get dumped on somehow.

    wouldn't sweat and grappling rub them off?

    I'm only down if they allow Condom Depot to come back as a sponsor I'd be down. Imagine a Condom Depot stomach tattoo like Perry's "God's Gift" tattoo

    I remember Duane Ludwig had one for Golden Palace a while back during a fight on his back. I'm not sure what substance they used for it though.

    Thanks for the quote, I love Sam Alvey should have noticed this before. Im guessing he wasnt smiling after they talked to him though...

    Didn't Brian Ebersole shave the Tapout logo into his chest hair one time? I never heard anyone get upset about that.

    Boxers do it all the time. Not sure about grappling, but sweat does nothing to them

    No sponsors allowed except for Reebok, the end. How is this not clear for TS in 2016 when nobody can wear anything coming into the ring except Reebok? The UFC does not allow anything.

    Also if you saw the godawful shit that dudes have in other orgs you would cringe at henna tattoos.

    I guess you don't pay attention because at least 2 sponsors were already allowed by the UFC and Reebok:
