    Hey Sherdog.

    Had an idea for this article to publish, with regards to the most expensive MMA-related gear that you own(ed).

    Just put down what it is and how much it's worth.

    I'd really appreciate it, cheers lads.

    Depends on the interpretation of the words "training gear" & "expensive".

    I own a lot of weight lifting equipment that could be considered ancillary training gear, although it is not necessarily mma specific. I'm a welder, among other things, & made most of the equipment out of scrap metal from work so most of the expense is from the weights themselves. Probably $2k worth of dumbells & olympic plates (used to own part of a gym way back when).

    I'm also currently making some cage panels for a local school & will have enough fencing left over for 2 that I will put in my basement so that I won't roll off my mats into the weight equipment. Cost to me is nothing since it will be left over material from the job I'm doing. Cost if I bought them would be $2k to $3k (from one of the major suppliers, I charge $650 each for them).

    I have about $1,500 tied up in Dollamur mats, 16 x 33 x 1.6". I guess that would be my single most expensive piece of training gear.
     
  5. My most expensive gear is one of my gis that normally sells for $130.

    Agreed. My Powerblock dumbbells are $515, and they fall under training equipment. My MMA mats were around $600.

    My most expensive fight gear I own are probably the Busa Striking Pro shun guards at $90. I find everything on sale, otherwise.

    Holy balls! I'm sooo glad I was able to pick a used on up cheap locally :D

    I honestly almost only buy gear on sale, so I'm pretty sure my IMF bag gloves at full price and my discounted Cleto Reyes Special Edition gloves, both at 70 bucks end up being the most expensive ahead of stuff like Rival RS2s etc.

    Sorry, I don't train mma, but I've worked out for most of my adult life.

    I used to go to the gym religiously but now that I have 2 kids I just can't make room for it anymore. Honestly, I'm in pretty damn good shape, and all I have are 2 45lb dumbells, a chin up bar that fits on the door frame and a 10lb medicine ball. Oh and a couple 2 pound dumbells that I use for boxing workouts.

    Honestly, the medicine ball rules, I use it far more often than I expected.
