    Default UFC reportedly adopts new dress code

    UFC reportedly adopts new dress code - Mixed Martial Arts News

    The UFC has reportedly started a new dress policy for fighters at official events.

    The first reference was a week ago on Benson Henderson's Fcebook account, when he said UFC president Dana White had done some shopping for him.

    Guess when the UFC big boss-man goes on an impromptu shopping spree for you, means you gotta think about stepping your game up...

    Bye-bye board shorts & plain tees??? We all gotta grow up & dress the part for work at some point in time, hehehe...



    Yesterday came word of a more formal announcement.

    Mwahahaha!!! Guess @ufc decided to make it official...I'm a start calling them the NBA...guess it's one thing to be encouraged to do or dress one way & entirely another thing to be told to do or dress one way...

    “Per Jackie, effective immediately, fighters and talent traveling on press tours and PR/marketing-related appearances are no longer permitted to wear shorts or flip flops. Jeans are acceptable and shoes are a must.”

    Don't get me wrong, I'm gonna dress how my employers want but doesn't mean I gotta be happy about it..."Don't let the man hold you down" "Fight the power" "You can take my life but you can never take my FREEDOM!!!"

    Eh. What? Good outward image and all I suppose but I'd rather them be them selves and dress themselves. I could gve two shits what benson wears when he's not in the cage. Silly to remove some of their outward personality. That being said I never see them outside of fights anyway...

    PR marketing related stuff and press tours, I would assume that does not include the weigh ins?

    Hence my assumption.

    Going to suck for fighters at press events in Brazil and other hot ass countries.

    I wonder what the dress code will be for the women.

    My vote is for booty shorts, flip flops are acceptable. Well maybe not for Kauffman and a couple others.
