This is the wrong answer. There's a difference between getting in a fist fight with a street punk and having a trained fighter try and tear you apart with every weapon he's ever learned how to use.

I hope I don't come off sounding like a jerk, but realistically, you're not a fighter if you're just fighting on the street. Step in and compete if you want to find out what kind of fighter you are, don't just put a drunk college student to sleep.

i wouldnt where my tapout or fcf shirt at my school, i would be liable to have stupid ass kid try to pick a fight with me....

like i wore my gracie barra shirt to school since i train, and i swear in every class some stupid ass said "whats gracie barra JIU JIT-SU??? is that some sort of fighting style" or "so are you good at wrasslin?" idk if yo guys feel me but i dont feel like dealing with these ppl, i can understand if they were asking a legit question cause i would be happy to answer, but they were all just trying to be smartasses and make me look like a tool...

I wear a zvonomir security shirt I got out sometimes. I wear it to show my support for one of my favorite fighters. I was walking around the mall in it one day after going to GMC and some girls stopped me and asked If I fought in the UFC. I was like no, im just a fan.

who gives a crap....sure maybe the odd guy will start hassling you about it, maybe he just doesn't know much about mma

be nice when people ask about your clothes, a lot of people think it's cool in the end

honestly i'll grab just about anything to put on when i go out as long as it's clean...hell i like wearing my sprawl shorts just because they're so damn comfortable

like when i go to the gym at school i stack matts up next to dip bar and kick the shit outta them...it's like kicking a thai pad cept a bit harder.....since we don't have a bag....a lot of people give me dirty looks and some ask me if i'm a fighter and i just tell them i havent fought yet but i'm training hard because it's something i like to do

i don't think its a big deal unless your purposely doing it to get attention and tell everyone "hey check it out, i wear fight gear because i train mma, don't mess with me or else i'll eff you up and everyone will know about it because i wear fight gear" then your just an effing douche

The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.

Not at all. I have some sprawl, sinister, tapout, and my BJJ school shirts. I wear them sometimes. I never had anyone ask me about them while out and about. Yes I train a lot, but even if someone does not train they should wear whatever they want. I dont get the argument that people should not wear Sprawl if they dont fight or they dont train. I think the majority of people who say stuff like that are 30 percent of people who just started training one week ago and have the Rookie mentallity that they are so hardcore. Well they have that mentality outside their gym.
