Benson Henderson via Facebook -  

 

Mwahahaha!!! Guess @ufc decided to make it official...I'm a start calling them the NBA...guess it's one thing to be encouraged to do or dress one way & entirely another thing to be told to do or dress one way...

 

"Per Jackie, effective immediately, fighters and talent traveling on press tours and PR/marketing-related appearances are no longer permitted to wear shorts or flip flops. Jeans are acceptable and shoes are a must."

 

Don't get me wrong, I'm gonna dress how my employers want but doesn't mean I gotta be happy about it..."Don't let the man hold you down" "Fight the power" "You can take my life but you can never take my FREEDOM!!!"

My work doesn't let me wear shorts or sandals to meetings either. I have to dress a certain way when representing the company.

I'm sure this will be spun into being a big deal but I jst don't see the issue. At least they don't have to wear fucking suits.

Every fighter should suit up for press conferences.

Because everything is better when you suit up... Phone Post 3.0

If this prevents someone from wearing flip flops and socks together I think its a great rule to enforce.

Welcome to the sports world sunshine. Fuck, playing hockey I had to wear a collared shirt and tie since I was 12 whenever traveling to games.

Any grown man that wears flip flops other than at the beach deserves a Fabiano Maldonado style beating. Phone Post

Don't see a problem. Makes total sense.

If it had been suit policy, I wouldn't argue anyways. You're at work, and it's only a dress code ;)

Good on the UFC for giving the fighters a choice to wear a hell of a lot of styles to suit the fighter and make them more comfortable and keeping their personality. Phone Post 3.0

When I saw the thread title, I was thinking what a bad idea this was, but all they're doing is saying no shorts or sandals while doing P.R. (as in, when doing press interviews on media tours, not when going to events). Does anyone really have an issue with this? I'm not sure this even constitutes "news". Hell, I'd probably go further and add "no sweatpants" to that. These are like the most minimal requirements possible.
