BUY on AMZN: $19.99
Rashad Evans coming out with the SUGA Rashad Shirt. Rashad Evans made his mark on MMA during the most tumultuous time of the UFC Light Heavyweight division. A period of time when the belt changed hands without any successful defences. Rashad Evans earned his title short with a devastating knockout win against the legend Chuck Liddell. He then won the championship from Forrest Griffin.
Killer Cub: Cub Swanson Gear
from @virusintl instagram
BUY on VIRUS: $24.00
Cub Swanson is one of my favourite fighters. His creative striking, his gritty fights, and his never die attitude. He’ll land everything from capoeira kicks to spinning back fists. Unfortunately, he couldn’t ever find his footing while in WEC. Now in the UFC, he’s putting a string of wins together and is definitely in position to make another run for the belt.
GSP Biograpy: The Way of the Fight
BUY on AMZN: $11.11
Georges St Pierre is one of the greatest MMA fighters of all time. From 2007 to 2013, the UFC Welterweight Division was likely the most talented and toughest division in the entire promotion. And GSP sat as the undefeated champion.
The Way of the Fight comes out a year before his documentary Takedown: The DNA of GSP. Both auto-biography and documentary cover his childhood, his training, and his rise to greatness. They both also cover his devastating injury and gruelling path to recovery.
For fight fans and fighters, both The Way of the Fight and Takedown contain some treasures of how to become great. Lessons that are applicable not only to MMA but to almost everything.

BUY at GUCCI: $1,490
The fast talking, sharp dressing BJJ super star continues to lead the fight world in style. Rocking his GUCCI Bengal Print Windbreaker. Just chillin, like a villain if I might add.
As the BJJ talent continues to prepare for the ADCCs, we are all looking forward to his MMA debut. With his brash attitude, Dillon Danis has garnered his fair share of believers and haters.
Chael Sonnen American Gangster Shirt from Torque
from @bellatormma instagram
BUY at TORQUE: $9.99
Chael Sonnen will go down in MMA history as one of the best smack talkers and fight promoters. He talked himself into two title fights against Anderson Silva. Then talked his way into a season of Ultimate Fighter and a title fight against Jon Jones. Even if we don’t appreciate Chael Sonnen for his talents in the cage. Fight fans definitely appreciate him for his entertaining press conferences that are often mixed with a little dose of honesty and a lot of sarcasm and humour.
In one of his most brilliant promotional lines, Chael Sonnen refers to himself as an American Gangster. As far as I know, Chael Sonnen is nothing close to what we would popularly stereotype as an American Gangster. Especially after the phenomenal movie with Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe.
Roy Nelson Pig Shirt: Hog Car Tours
from @roynelsonufc instagram
BUY at HOG CAR TOURS: $24.99
At UFC on Fox Kansas City, Roy Nelson lost a decision against Alexander Volkov. Roy Nelson has proved himself in the cage as far as I’m concerned. What caught my eye however was that he was wearing a “I Beat Anorexia” shirt with a cool looking pig on it. The Roy Nelson pig shirt is actually from his Las Vegas tour business, Hog Car Tours.
Dominick Cruz Lightning Shirt
from @dominickcruz instagram
BUY on AMZN: $659.09
Dominick Cruz has paid his dues and proved to the fight world there’s nobody tougher than him in the UFC Bantamweight division. The Bantamweight king went through a period of struggle where he kept getting injured. He lost his title because he couldn’t defend it and was forced into the sidelines. Although he couldn’t fight, he didn’t quit. He found a new angle of the fight game that he was talented in; commentating and fight analysis.
Conor McGregor Fan Shirt: Fook You
BUY on AMZN: $16.99
Within the last few years, Conor McGregor has rocketed himself to become the highest paid and most recognized MMA fighter. At one point he held both the UFC Featherweight title and the UFC Lightweight title. Two of the toughest divisions in MMA. Conor McGregor was able to accomplish this with his special ability to talk smack and actually back it up. Taking a page right out of Chael Sonnen’s playbook, Conor McGregor would use stinging insults and foolish behaviour to win fans. Not to mention getting into his opponents head which is now an essential part of top tier MMA.
Despite Conor’s capable and creative smack talking, he met his match with Nate Diaz. The cool headed king of nonchalant. Conor tried his mind games on Nate Diaz and was slapped with a cold and firm “I Don’t Give a Fuck!” A quintessential Nate Diaz line that Conor McGregor had no come back to.
