Why is he complaining? They're not telling him what he has to wear all the time, just when he's at work. Don't most of us have a dress code at work? I don't like wearing business casual everyday to work, but that's the policy, that's why I look forward to casual Fridays! Jeans and t-shirt ftw!

Pretty much this. It's not untypical for an employer, let alone a huge sports franchise to have a dress code. Hell, if you work at Walmart, you have to wear certain clothes.

Most of these fighters just like slumming like bums because 95% of their day requires no formality.

What exactly are Timberland boots? Like the ones ring girls had to wear in weigh ins with only their limited outfit a while back?

It's basically just a work boot... but became popular with certain "hip hop" dress styles

This is nothing but a bad thing. People are just parroting nonsensical gibberish that has been beaten into them. There is no such thing as dressing professionally as a universal standard. All this does is exclude people of various cultures from relating to fighters in another way.

They aren't working at some retail store like walmart they don't need uniforms for the customers to recognize them and ask them for help. When they start wearing armani suits while punching each other in the face that will become their professional attire.

You can't tell me any of you ever gave a shit when these guys wore tshirts or timbs or thought less of them for it.

Cry me a river. He's making six figures every time he fights and is a champion headlining pay-per-views. He can wear jeans and shoes. Boo hoo. Considering what most other professional athletes wear (and even guys in the WWE), he should be happy that he's not wearing a suit.

I really don't care either way about this issue, but can't we turn this 'boo hoo he's making millions' and turn it on Dana and the Ferttitas?

Those guys are making more coin thant anyone so why should they complain to other people about dressing a certain way? Why are they crying about it?

Because they own the business and are trying to up hold a certain dress standard.

How much money they have is irrelevant.... they own the company, they asked their employes to do something rather reasonable.... and the employing (who is well compensated for his efforts) is complaining cuz he can't wear his flippy floppies anymore.

I think it's pointless. Nobody looks at a fighter with disdain because they are in shorts and flipflops.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?
