Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and its official sponsor, Reebok, today announced a new UFC Fight Kit as we gear up for the UFC 215: “Johnson vs. Borg” pay-per-view (PPV) event, scheduled for this Saturday night (Sept. 9, 2017) inside Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
Let’s hope they avoid a repeat of this.
The revamped collection includes the new “Legacy Series” for some of the top stars of UFC 215, like women’s bantamweight No. 1 contender Valentina Shevchenko, who gets her own t-shirt (embedded below).
And of course “Mighty Mouse” gets one too:
“We’re excited to launch the new UFC Fight Night Collection and Legacy Series program leading up to UFC 215, which marks our first-ever event in Edmonton,” UFC Senior Vice President of Global Consumer Products Tracey Bleczinski said. “Both collections represent the continued evolution of our fight apparel product lines, offering more advanced performance gear, while providing fight fans a unique offering of jerseys that were designed by some of their favorite UFC athletes. The level of customization with the Legacy Series is unprecedented in the world of professional sports. This program is truly a game changer.”
Pretty sure the game will stay the same in spite of these new threads.
If you’re feeling both angry and amused, you’re not alone.
