Maybe a couple of fighters have stinky feet and rather than singling them out and embarrassing them they just instituted it for everyone.

Any Europeans in this thread? Is it still a big deal that an Adult male shouldn't wear shorts if he is old enough for pants or is that tradition a bit antiquated. If it's still in effect, expanding into the Euro market might be valid reason for requiring pants.

Nah, it's totally ok to wear shorts in Europe:

Actually upon reflection, and looking for other media reports... as far as I know Benson is the only one that has been told this, it's not a policy that was implemented for all fighters (and maybe not even a policy, just a suggestion).

Dress codes go exceptionally well with mohawks, mullets, zeus beards, uncle creepy mustaches & tattoos.

Dana can start a reality show giving UFC fighters makeovers and pedicures.

This is a good move by the UFC, and one that should be applauded. Mixed martial arts already has enough trouble finding acceptance with the majority of society as it is due to the fact that our athletes are punching and kicking each other in the face inside of a steel cage, often on a canvas stained with blood from fights that occurred earlier in the evening. Giving the athletes a clean look can't hurt.
This. Imo, this is good for the UFC, and MMA in general.

I get this feeling sometimes that the jeans thing might have something to do with guys wearing shorts with all kinds of sponsors they don't want them wearing off camera at public functions as well as on their television broadcasts.
