(Quick Preface by Admin: We happily welcome our first Guest Blogger, Jimmy R.. Jimmy is a die hard MMA fan, and friend of the Baby Fight Gear crew, he will be posting his thoughts regularly on this site, and please let him know your thoughts in the comments section)
We’ve all heard it before: “Look at that guy in the Tapout shirt, what a tool”. Replace tool with whatever word you like, it’s usually the same story.
So, does supporting your favorite sport make you look uncool?
Well, there are two trains of thought that could be considered in this matter, one for, and one against the argument.
First of all, you can look at it from the supporter’s perspective: “I’m wearing a Couture shirt, he’s a good fighter. I support his team. What’s the difference between wearing a Couture shirt and wearing a Saint Louis Cardinals jersey?” (I’ll say Cardinals because although I’m an avid supporter of MMA, I’m a Saint Louisan, and in this town we all have one sport in common: baseball.)
This is a reasonable argument, and is quite justified. The only problem is that you aren’t seeing it from an outsider’s perspective.
The original fans (and founding members) of MMA were what? The acceptable answers would be: Hard-asses, Tough Guys, Street Fighters, and Brawlers. These are also the people that helped put MMA on the map, but “Joe Family Man” doesn’t realize that. HE thinks that Chuck Liddell is the Babe Ruth of the sport, and that it’s in its infancy.
When “Joe” saw the first fans in Tapout shirts, he saw guys that he would normally cross the street to avoid. You can’t blame Joe, though.
Joe doesn’t want any trouble, he has a family, he’s been in 2 fights in his life, and one of them was with his older sister. As the old adage goes, “If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s probably a duck.”
The general consensus for the unknowing public now is that only the people you don’t want to mix with wear MMA shirts. But here’s hope for you fans, and you should think about this:
In the 1950′s, greasers were the scum of the earth. They were known for fighting, stealing, etc. Since then, Grease is one of the best-selling musicals of all time, everybody watched as a young Ralph Macchio told Ponyboy to “Stay Gold” in “The Outsiders”, and “The Fonz” is an American Icon.
Tattoos were at one time considered a destruction of one’s body, and if you had one, you had a complete lack of respect for yourself, and you were gross. Now John Mayer, the lady’s choice, and notably one of the world’s softest people in the world, has two sleeves.
Here’s the point: It’s a new thing. People are always freaked out by change, and if you look different, you’re wrong (until you’re right)… Don’t worry about it. People will jump onboard. By now, you’ve already seen a few people that don’t look like they can fight their way out of a cotton candy store wearing an MMA shirt.

Co Main event:
Frankie Edgar v Gray Maynard
The third fight between these two. After a draw in there last bout, Maynard was able to sway Dana White to allow an immediate rematch with the champ. So “The Bully” has his chance. It’s anyone’s guess as to what will happen here, but Frankie “The Answer” Edgar is like the Energizer bunny with fists. The guy never stops going. I can see the little spark plug punching his way to a decision.
Jose Aldo v Kenny Florian
After missing several chances at the 155 lb belt, K-Flo moves to 145 to try his luck there. Standing in his way is Aldo who some say is one of the best pound for pound fighters. Florian will have his hands full. He claims that Aldo has not fought anyone with his experience before. At age 35 Florian does have experience, and this may be his last shot at a title. But Aldo has amazing talent and sick explosiveness, if he is able to avoid previous issues with cutting weight and enter the ring at 100% we should see a rare knockout of Kenny Florian.
Chael Sonnen v Brian Stann
Thankfully for the sport and interviewers everywhere, Chael Sonnen, finally returns to the ring after dominating Anderson Silva for 99% of their last fight. Unfortunately for him, that last 1% will get ya every time. He hopes to knock the ring rust off against a man after his own heart, ex-marine Brian Stann. This will be no cake walk for Sonnen. Stann is a stud and Chael knows it. But I believe Sonnen is in an elite class that Stann hasn’t made it to. Brian Stann also does not have the submission skills that usually bite Sonnen in the behind. Look for Sonnen to beat up Stann on the ground as he always does and win the unanimous decision. Let’s just hope he has his Testosterone levels in check this time, so there are no unanswered questions.
Melvin Guillard v Joe Lauzon
Guillard needs to overcome Lauzon if he wants a title fight. He’s been here before though and the submission guy always seems to catch him. Lauzon claims himself that his subs are “The Assasin’s” kryptonite. Guillard is definitely the more powerful and explosive of the two and if he can stay out of a Lauzon pretzel he should be able to knock him out at some point. I think that by this point Guillard has learned his lesson and should come away with the KO win.
Now that he is back in the UFC, could he also be thinking of a political comeback by putting a twist on this classic politician move? The Oregon Republican with the best verbal jabs in the business, Chael Sonnen was cool enough to team up with us here at BabyFightGear.com to provide America’s youth with some premiere threads. Avoiding his famous trash talk and being on his best behavior leading up to his UFC 136 bout with former-Marine Brian Stann on October 8th in Houston, Texas. Chael has chosen a winning design through a fan driven contest on MiddleEasy.com. Could another Oregon congress run be in his future? Time will tell?
