On the plus side for those new to the sport or viewers who are unfamiliar with the two fighters in action it would be clear that 'this fighter' is in the blue apparel and the 'other fighter' is in the red apparel. Or whatever color scheme(s) get decided upon. It may seem like a small thing but when listening to color commentary if you can't figure out who is who it takes away from the experience. I think this is a positive all the way around, unless of course a fighter is forced to endorse a company they don't want to support.

Reading this thread it does seem that this can get more sticky. Nike is an interesting example as their record overseas of labour treatment is terrible. Would Jeff Monson (when he was in UFC) wear Nike? Given what I know about his outlook he would not. Would the Korean Zombie where Hayabusa given his feelings towards the rising sun logo? I understand they have since pulled that line, but it does show that this situation will need some finesse to get a level ground that works for a lot of different people.

I still see this as a positive financial move for lower card fighters and think it is a natural progression for both the sport and the UFC.

Same way if I buy cheap trackies, the arse is 100% going to rip within 6 months

They haven't been approved to have the right material or stitching or whatever that makes the 'safer'.

The commission dictates standards of uniform in fights and its never been a problem in the past. Have you ever seen anyone's shorts rip in a UFC fight? I can't think of an instance. If you read about Dana's complaints here it's actually just because they looked cheap and freshly purchased and he called it embarrassing. Basically it was a fashion issue. That's idiotic IMO when Dana has a parking garage full of lamborghinis and tips dealers at casinos 10 grand but is paying mckenzie 20 grand per fight to fight twice a year and then after taxes, coaches, training partners, cornermen, supplements, equipment, Cody's lucky to take home half of that.

Should Cody have worn nicer shorts? I honestly don't care and it's insane to me that Dana would even speak up about that.

It's never happened because people weren't just buying sports shorts from the local shop before. I heard Dana say it would be the worst possible thing for a wardrobe malfunction in UFC (Rousey didnt get blasted though? TITS!)

But for me, I couldn't work out in the majority of my trackies because they'd split. But the more expensive ones like Adidas are cool to train in. It's pretty easy for shit to get ripped in an MMA fight if the quality is poor, ESPECIALLY when it has pockets.
