For years now, there has been talk of the UFC possibly adding uniforms for their fighters to wear while competing inside the octagon and now Mike Mossholder, who is the UFC’s svp of global marketing partnerships has added more fuel to the fire.
The UFC is “actively engaged in conversations” with a “premium apparel line” for an exclusive deal to outfit the league’s 400-plus fighters, said Mossholder, who would not reveal the outfitter. Since Rousey’s the “No. 1 most requested athlete” by UFC sponsors like MetroPCS, it’s “highly likely” she’d be highlighted. Reps from Nike, Under Armour and Adidas either declined to comment or could not be reached
A deal could be lucrative for both the UFC and the athletes who would get their cut. Nike’s paying the NFL an estimated $1.1 billion over five years to put the Swoosh on uniforms. Historically, the UFC has allowed athletes to cut their own deals for the brands they wear inside the Octagon.
So, with that being said, do you want or think that there should be uniforms in the UFC? Let us know down below in the comment section below.
