The commission dictates standards of uniform in fights and its never been a problem in the past. Have you ever seen anyone's shorts rip in a UFC fight? I can't think of an instance. If you read about Dana's complaints here it's actually just because they looked cheap and freshly purchased and he called it embarrassing. Basically it was a fashion issue. That's idiotic IMO when Dana has a parking garage full of lamborghinis and tips dealers at casinos 10 grand but is paying mckenzie 20 grand per fight to fight twice a year and then after taxes, coaches, training partners, cornermen, supplements, equipment, Cody's lucky to take home half of that.
Should Cody have worn nicer shorts? I honestly don't care and it's insane to me that Dana would even speak up about that.
It's never happened because people weren't just buying sports shorts from the local shop before. I heard Dana say it would be the worst possible thing for a wardrobe malfunction in UFC (Rousey didnt get blasted though? TITS!)
But for me, I couldn't work out in the majority of my trackies because they'd split. But the more expensive ones like Adidas are cool to train in. It's pretty easy for shit to get ripped in an MMA fight if the quality is poor, ESPECIALLY when it has pockets.
