Pride FC Shirt
BUY on AMZN: $6.00
Finally, I found the Pride FC Shirt! Pride FC was the first platform to launch MMA’s popularity. Founded by Nobuyuki Sakakibara and Nobuhiko Takada in 1997 Pride FC made Japan the mecca of MMA where the world’s best athletes flocked to compete. The original intention of Pride FC was to build a platform where Takada could fight the legendary Rickson Gracie. The show found its popularity and grew to be a national sensation.
One of the reasons behind it’s popularity was that it was a new promotion that broke away from the traditional platforms in Karate and Sumo. Additionally, each event was managed and produced to be like a show instead of a competition. With exciting costumes, interesting fighters, and the enthusiastic announcing voice of Lenne Hardt. Pride FC brought early MMA fans unforgettable experiences and fight heroes.

Joanna Jedrzejczyk is one the most ferocious fighters in womens MMA history. She spent the first part of her fighting career in Muay Thai where she was a multiple time champion. She has taken her impeccable technique and aggressive style to the UFC and dominated the MMA world.
Fighting in the 115 pound division means that she is one of the smallest people fighting in the UFC. Despite her small frame, she has a monstrous amount of violence ready to be unleashed on her opponents.

Nate Diaz and Yancy Medeiros RVCA Shirts. Nate and Yancy are two of the most terrifying fighters in the UFC. Both train out of Cesare Gracie’s gym and belong to a team of absolute killers like Gilbert Melendez, Jake Shields, and of course Nick Diaz.
Both fighters are sponsored by RVCA and here they are rocking some of their subtle and stylish shirts. Although these shirts are easily found on Amazon, I’m not sure I can make these shirts look as cool and confident as these two.

Dillon Danis back as the most fashionable BJJ practitioner in his private jet. Rocking the D&G leopard and pineapple shirt. He also has a brilliant pair of Versace white deer skin shoes on.
Many members of the fight world find Dillon’s attitude to be annoying and disrespectful. But you can’t blame how it’s working and drawing attention. Taking a page right out of Conor’s book of success, Dillon Danis is definitely making a name for himself. With the noise he is making, he can leverage this popularity to negotiate for bigger contracts and even PPV points in the future.

BUY at AKA SHOP: $22.99
Two proud coaches and their current Light Heavyweight Champion and team captain Daniel Cormier rocking AKA Affliction shirts.
The American Kickboxing Academy has produced some of MMAs toughest and most accomplished fighters. Starting with an earlier generation of top fighters in Frank Shamrock, Josh Koscheck, and Jon Fitch. Coached by the phenomenal team of Javier Mendez, Bob Cook, and Dave Camarillo. Although these fighters were never champions in the UFC they put AKA on the map as one of the best MMA gyms in the US.
Around 2012, there was a huge riff between the fighters and the coaches at AKA resulting in Josh Koscheck and Dave Camarillo leaving AKA. The drama and the resulting feud only served to bring more attention and publicity to the gym. Many members of the fight world questioned AKA and whether they would be able to survive without Guerilla Jiu Jitsu founder and grappling coach Dave Camarillo.

BUY on AMZN: $119.95
If you have been following Joanna Jedrzejczyk on instagram, you’ll notice that she has an adorable fascination with Minnie Mouse. This week, Joanna will be defending her UFC Strawweight Championship against the herculean Jessica Andrade. To fly from Florida to Dallas where her fight is, Joanna chooses a simple Disney Minnie Mouse Luggage.
It’s always interesting to see such an insanely violent and deadly striker have a soft and lovable side as well. Joanna may face her toughest challenge yet against Jessica Andrade. Jessica is considered a powerful striker with incredible strength for the weight class. Although she’s only a purple belt in BJJ, she has finished a number of her fights via submission.
