They are trying to be the NFL. And honestly, I can't blame them. If there was a fighters union I'd actually support it.

Becoming less of a fan of the UFC by the day. This is really pathetic.

Except the NFL is a non-profit and doesn't put the lion's share of the income into the hands of a few shareholders instead of the athletes...

Nike announced they are filing an infringement lawsuit against Venum MMA appear. Apparently Nike has a Venom apparel line and they say Venum is the same as Venom, their demands include a cease and desist of all things having to do with the name Venum and that all inventories with the name Venum on them be destroyed.

Something about all of this makes me think Nike+Zuffa=UFC Uniforms and this is an outlined task to that end. No tin foil hat needed.

When I read that they were working with a major apparel company I thought Nike was the obvious candidate considering their existing relationship. I'm guessing the UFC brand seen on fighters like Jones and Rousey would be under the Nike umbrella and I'd imagine they would just slap a swoosh on all the apparel that has the UFC logo on it. Just my guess.
Maybe they will have their own Nike branch kind of like Michael Jordan.

Keep em sweet business 101, I doubt the UFC will have a strict uniform code.

I don't think it would be a "code" they would just supply all fighters with the same style gear. Maybe they have red and blue for the red corner and blue corner or maybe the colors themselves will be up to the fighter? Either way it's not going to be like a dress code where a fighters gear must meet certain specs. They would supply the fighters with the gear.

That sounds awful tbh. Every fighter would look the same, like they're a cast of the latest season of TUF or sth.

Yeah I could see it being very similar to what is on TUF. You would have the fighter and his corner wearing the same thing and likely the other side wearing the same thing of a different color.
