UFC & Reebok Unveil New Fight Kits Including Custom Walk-Out Gear
From: MMAJunkie.com Fighters will look a little different starting at UFC 215.
Reebok and the UFC today announced “a holistic update” to the fight kit, which includes new designs for octagon uniforms, walkout jerseys, walkout hoodies, and walkout hats. It’s the first overhaul of the fight kit since the UFC’s Athlete Outfitting Policy with Reebok started in Dec. 2014.
A highlight of the new kit is what’s being dubbed the “Legacy Series,” which allows all pay-per-view headliners and championship bout fighters to work with Reebok to co-design a custom walkout jersey. That begins with this Saturday’s UFC 215, which takes place at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
So obviously, an improvement over the last set of kits. I still wish there was a bit more variety in the uniforms themselves, but... baby steps, ya know? I do really like that they've added some customization to the walk-out gear, although it is only for PPV headliners and competitors in Championship bouts...
The kits will be debuted at UFC 215 in Edmonton on Saturday
