All this over t shirts? Between polo shirts and friggin skulls or whatever all over shirts it's hard to find something decent today.

St. Pierre is going to be with the ufc for a long time, and hell everytime Dana is at the weigh in he seems to be pissed at somebody or giving them a had look.

True. I didn't even think about Canada I guess. I was talking about the USA but I keep forgetting that there are UFC fans in other countries besides the USA. At least I can say that Chuck is the most popular here.

This is the stupidiest thing ive read in ages. If one guy wearing an Affliction t-shirt acts like a dick doesnt mean Affliction is crap or their t-shirts suck or everyone in the world sucks that wears affliction......

Anybody in the world can wear what they want, how they want, i could say that about any clothing line. Affliction are smart business ppl with a smart strategy and good business sense. They price their clothing that way for a reason. Most of their shirts are good quality and quite funky.

First, like Faceman was saying, Affliction is being banned because they are starting an MMA organization. That is where Tim Sylvia and Fedor are rumoring to fight, not because of the Randy feud thing.

Second, Why in the hell would GSP be pissed at Dana when Dana had him fight for the title in his hometown?

"When I hear athletes call themselves warriors, it does bother me a little bit. When I think of a warrior, I think of the Marines I've led in combat, those Marines that sacrificed so much...no showers, little food, no contact with their family, all for their love for their brother Marine and for their love for their country. That's a warrior, willing to lay his life on the line. I've had Marines that have laid their lives on the line for the man next to him, and for their family and country. That's a warrior. The guy who goes into some athletic contest who has no war experience, in my eyes, really has no right to call himself that. That's a coveted thing to call someone, and that's what I call my Marines. Those are warriors." - Brian Stann

this whole thread is based on assumptions. I personally love thinking about crazy possibilities like the new affliction mma organization making it big and overshadowing the ufc. i do see gsp switching, along with rampage, because i have a feeling he will lose against griffin.

many fighters are unhappy in the ufc. i remember reading a rampage interview where he was frustrated that he wasnt allowed to promote his energy drink. my prediction for the affliction org? their 1rst event will have the long awaited randy and fedor fight as the main event. it will jumpstart it and it just might bring down the ufc.

i personally love the affliction shirts. they're real works of art and the detail in them is exquisite. however, i cant bring myself to spend 70$ on a shirt. like swpth said, sinful is imo cheesy and affliction is waaayyyy nicer.

Things will change

As UFC establishes itself properly and faces serious competition from other organizations there is no doubt that many things will change in the UFC to combat the threat. Elite fighters can expect huge pay increases and a MMA fighters union may develop also to establish minimum conditions.
If anyone is familiar with cricket here, the whole Indian Premier League is a case study on what the UFC needs to avoid.

Just on a side note regarding the Affliction promotion.....Think of these names;

Fedor, Randy, Matt Lindland, Josh Barnett, GSP, Rampage, Tim Sylvia.......thats a potential card with some mega stars. Now that has the potential to do some damage to Dana and the UFC !!!

Isn't Sinful the female version of Affliction? I bought the great Birds of Prey affliction shirt and my girlfriend bought the Sinful shirt that has the same sort of design and color, but a female version so like different designs.

I wish I could find some pictures of it.
