Sponsor Shout-Out: 8th Degree Black

8th Degree Black LogoWith the MMA clothing landscape growing by the day it’s becoming more and more difficult to determine what companies are worth buying from and which are simply trying to capitalize from the sport’s surge in popularity. I can personally attest that 8th Degree Black is in the former category, offering quality products at reasonable prices.

8th Degree Black’s Tim Gilroy was kind enough to send in some shirts to tryout and I can vouch that they’re quality shirts with great designs inspired by the history and tradition of MMA, including Pankration, Vale Tudo, Shooto, and Judo.

Here’s some more information about 8th Degree Black:

Our Brand: 8th Degree Black is a high quality brand of Mixed Martial Arts inspired FashionWear. 8th Degree Black appeals to the casual MMA fan, as well as hardcore fans that recognize the bravery and tradition of martial arts. While we are inspired by the world of MMA, our brand also appeals to the fashion conscious that are always looking for a fresh and trendy style.

Our Inspiration: Like MMA itself, our graphics are a cross-culture blend of fast paced excitement and global heritage. We chronicle MMA from its origins, when Pankration was introduced in the Greek Olympic Games. It is considered the first all-encompassing fighting system in history. We illustrate the concepts of Brazil’s Vale Tudo, and Japan’s Shooto, which combined the elements of various martial arts. Together, they pioneered today’s Mixed
Martial Arts revolution.

Our Mission: As MMA transcends from the underground world to mainstream phenomenon, we believe there is a market for a new and exciting style of FashionWear. Our mission is to provide a sleek brand of styles that capture the true essence of Mixed Martial Arts.

Our Style: We focus on only the finest, high-end garments to give consumers the comfort and style they deserve. We utilize softhand and waterbase inks for optimum wearability. Combined with our original and creative artwork, the result is an exceptional line of branded FashionWear.
