They think that UFC is a sport, not a promotion. That one really peeves me off, a lot..

i had no idea this thread would be so popular lol. i love when people say it's fixed like wrestling. and people that think any fighter that was on tuf is automatically going to be a god in the big show.

And yes, the guy was fat.
I always see the biggest turds wearing tapout shirts and they dont know anything about the sport at all. I have stopped buying tapout shirts because of this and am quite annoyed by mma becoming mainstream, because along with it becoming mainstream not many people are becoming educated. They are just buying tapout shirts.

"when guys come up to me at a concert (while wearing an affliction shirt) and ask me if I fight" to which I reply it says Black Sabbath on it not Chuck Liddell.

-Hence I have given up wearing Afflcition since everyone and their mother wears it........used to be cool before it became mainstream.

on the flipside of the coin I wear a St. Louis Cardinals shirt and nobody asks me if I play for the Cardinals

Haha, I didn't notice there was a tapout discussion in the page before this, good stuff.

I live in western Pennsylvania so I'm basically surrounded by hicks. It's always the guys with the white tanktops, blue jeans, with a blonde goatee and the barbwire tattoo that shop at Spencers along with their skank girlfriend that wear Tapout hats. Spencers and Hott Topic is where they get their Tapout/UFC gear around here.

Yeah, this really urks me now that so many people (who know nothing about mma) are wearing Tapout. If I have one of my shirts on, I can't stand it when somebody comes up and asks, "do you train UFC?". I always reply, "no I train MMA". Then they say something like, "what's that?". IDIOTS!!

Yep, same here, though I did see Tapout merch at Champs Sports in the Springfield (Battlefield) mall.

I'm guessing that non-fighters want people to think they're, "tough" by wearing Tapout.
