Who should wear MMA clothing?

Personally, I think it depends on the brand. For people who don't train at all, I think the more mainstream-looking or fan type stuff is ok (Affliction, Wand, Chute Boxe, fighters' custom shirts). People that train can wear pretty much everything, but I don't think people who don't fight should wear stuff like Full Contact Fighter.

What do you guys think? If you pick it depends, please explain.

i don't train mma but take tkd and am an avid mma fan. i'd be more inclined to wear clothes with a swank mma equipment brand on them, like windy or fairtex, rather than TapouT.

but i still like the TapouT logo

If I see someone with an MMA shirt, I'm gonna ask them if they train, regardless of brand.

Seriously, who cares? I think anyone should be able to wear anything, I just associate TapouT with bros now instead of MMA, but so what?

I was just curious what people thought. Personally, I think it's kind of wannabe for someone to wear Tapout, Full Contact Fighter, etc. if they don't fight or even train.

Who cares really. Should people who don't play basketball not wear NBA jerseys?

I will wear some sinister or tapout once and a while. I never get asked by anyone if I train. As far as who is allowed to wear it. I can see both points. But those of us who train learn via pain. So those who train earn wearing those names.

Ya, but who really cares if they're "wannabes"? Theyre spending money on MMA brands, and in turn making MMA bigger in a whole. I say the more people into MMA(in any way, shape, or form) the better
