I won't wear Tapout b/c I've found some of the stereotypes Tango mentioned to have some validity, at least in my experience. I'd rather shell out $$ for Affliction or a Chute Boxe shirt, or Sinister if I knew where to find it.

More people on average are probably going to buy it though since it seems significantly cheaper than some other lines associated with MMA.

I see that around where I live all the time someone buys a tapout or affliction shirt and all of a sudden they think they are like the sh*t or something. All I can do is laugh because I'm sure many of these kids would get their asses handed to them in a fight.

You would love me, I have all kinds of Fairtex apparel.

I forgot to add that whenever I see a person wearing a Tapout shirt they always seem to be fat and out of shape.

I was at a party and some kid wearing a Tapout shirt tried to start some fight with me because I said something to my friend he was talking with. He kept saying he'd been training MMA for 3 years and could kick anyones ass at the party. I laughed at him and walked away and that was the end of it. Later on in the night I heard him talking MMA with someone and it was clear he had no idea what he was talking about.

I feel embarrassed every time the camera goes to the tap out crew for some reason. At least their shirts arnt going at like 50 dollars a pop like affliction though.

Wear what you want to wear but no man should be paying 50 dollars for a shirt.

Mostly around here I have noticed that with Affliction shirts and guys thinking they are super tough.

I think the problem is that for guys who dont train, they think the techniques used in MMA like arm-bars and guillotine chokes are easy. I have run into many guys who think if they get into a fight they can choke someone out with no problem. They dont realize that there is a lot of skill in properly setting those things up and executing them.

I am wearing Tapout shorts and an Affliction shirt and I will kick all of your asses with a jumping knee punch.

I got a similiar story were I was running at the mouth in a bar at this fat slob in a tap out shirt who proceeded to tell me he had been taking BJJ since he was 4 and would f*** me up, I laughed this is in the bush way up north and the guy is like 30 years old so apparently he started taking BJJ in 1982 in but f*** nowhere because Its not BJJ is a fairly recent phenoem in Canada or anything... Needless to say the BJJ blob was more talk then action, (probably a good thing Im not a big fighter and he was much larger than me)
