I know it's ultra douchey but I wear Nick Diaz's hoodie from his fight with GSP. Just always wanted a mulisha hoodie after seeing the Diaz's walk out in one so many times. Phone Post 3.0

The red RVCA Fedor shirt is among the finest and classiest garments that could be worn by a human being

Pride Logo T-Shirt [Black]


Yeah, you have to like that t-shirt.

I started my own t-shirt biz and quite often I get asked why I don't do MMA stuff. Mostly because the market is actually quite small and hard to access.

Large companies like Tapout, Silver Star, Affliction and MMA Elite spend big bucks getting their name in your face and they really see the surge after a PPV or event. Mostly online though although once the name is established guys will pick them up in outlets.

So for the smaller guy it's not worth it financially to even hope to be supported by MMA fans and casual fans. You've got to do what RVCA did and reach out to another genre like beach/surfing etc and combine them to make money.

However, this doesn't explain the horrid graphics that come on a lot of MMA inspired t-shirts. The walk-out t-shirts are easy to grasp because they are meant to advertise for the fighter's entrance and I can see people buying to support the fighter/brand. So you know they are going to look crazy, but some stuff that comes out is just bizarre because you know that someone sat around and said, "Damn, I think I will put this on a t-shirt and I think MMA fans will buy it."

Someone else in this thread mentioned that also some shirts advertise that you like a brand of fighting, or skulls and flames imply something. Myself if I like something I will wear it because I like it, but some people will not.

This thread content is interesting to me so I hope to hear about what other people think.

Affliction or Tapout should come out with a custom hooded monks robe and walking staff with a crystal ball on top

That'd be Kenny Powers-lvl badass

I have two mma shirts. Six deuce's genki sudo inspired 'we are all one' and submit wrestle strike that was a gift. Both are pretty low key and the second was a gift.

I've never been a fan of being a walking advertisement. I don't like looking like a gothic Christmas tree or a octopuses splooge shot. I like simple strong designs. I like subtle references to the violent arts, not in your face "ITRANEUFCBITCHEZ"

But hey that's just my opinion. Style like art is in the eye of the beholder. Phone Post 3.0
