Something about all of this makes me think Nike+Zuffa=UFC Uniforms and this is an outlined task to that end. No tin foil hat needed.
When I read that they were working with a major apparel company I thought Nike was the obvious candidate considering their existing relationship. I'm guessing the UFC brand seen on fighters like Jones and Rousey would be under the Nike umbrella and I'd imagine they would just slap a swoosh on all the apparel that has the UFC logo on it. Just my guess.
Maybe they will have their own Nike branch kind of like Michael Jordan.
