I don't think it should be an elitest thing, like all fighters identify themselves by wearing fight gear. I can understand the logic in supporting a fighter or camp.

I doesn't make sense that you should need to train at Chute Boxe to wear a Chute Boxe shirt.

If you're supporting a fighter or a team, then I understand wearing the shirt.

Still, if it makes people act like punks (and I've seen that happen a couple of times), then they shouldn't do it, or at least be aware that there are consquences.

I picked "depends." There's a reason.

I was walking back from no-gi jiujitsu with my OTM shorts on. The velcro piece that runs across the top says Built-2-Fight across it in big letters. What I didn't realize is that the front of my shirt was tucked into the shorts a bit. As I'm walking down the street some woman in front of me says "You see that... built to fight... he's CRAZY!" Loud enough for me to hear her.

After that incident I realized that the shorts may be an open invitation to fight if I'm walking through the wrong part of town. I'm a lot more careful about the shirt being tucked in. All I need is some dude with something to prove to test whether the logo on my shorts really applies to me or not!

Another point about my shorts... they are a little shorter than a lot of board shorts, have a fairly long split on the outside of each leg, and have black gi material attached to the front of the shorts ("I think they call them grip shorts"). These are not shorts that are made for everyday wear. I would have to say that anyone wearing them who doesn't train would look like a douche. But this isn't a brand thing. OTM makes other stuff that would be fine on anyone.

Tucking a t-shirt into shorts is just gay anyways.

You're hilarious. It was an accident. And I'm not sure whether you've met anyone who's gay, but no gay person I know would be caught dead with their shirt tucked into their shorts.

Same here. This is also part of the reason I wear my stuff to meet other MMA fans, fighters, trainers, whoever. We should look at it as a way of identifying each other. I've actually met and had good conversations with other people while wearing my TapouT shirt.

Personally, I think if your just an MMA fan in general you should feel fine to wear whatever MMA stuff you want. You're a fan and your expressing your love of the sport and getting it out into the open. I do think it would be odd for someone to wear it though if they knew nothing about MMA at all.

All people

I think any one should be able to wear MMA gear. It's your money right? You can buy whatever you want.

If only people that train are allowed to wear MMA gear then these companys would definetely go out of business. Plus, the more people that wear their product, the more people are aware of MMA which is a plus for everyone involved.
