What qualifications do I need to wear such a loud brand?
you have to NOT train, and NOT know much about mma or grappling
When I was in high school I bought 2 tapout shirts when the brand first emerged in the UFC (as far as I knew).
I've probably worn them like 5 times combined in 5 years.
And now a few of my friends wear affliction shirts but have never seen the inside of a gym. Makes me want to puke.
I know tapout is more poser than affliction, but affliction just looks ridiculous IMO.
An affliction shirt is more prestigious than a BJJ black belt.
Have an affliction shirt I got for a present from a g/f. It sits in the closet. Should cut it up and use it for shop rags or something.
fuck you beat me to it
So if I like basketball, but I don't play professionally, I'm not allowed to wear a basketball jersey?
It's only clothing guys...
Great first post. Im sure you'll be a woderful member of the Cage and OT.
I like the looks of some of the affliction stuff, but he'll if I am going to pay $80+ for a shirt or $160 for a hoodie.
i think i have a bootleg tapout shirt from the philippines. nice shit
anything bootleg comes out of the philippines or thailand. Im still rocking my philipino game boy my friend got me. Every fucking nes/game boy game in one brick looking thing lmao,
my buddy got a tapout sticker for his back window, and some ass smashed it out within a week.
Wow... you are a super lurker.
congratulations. you have the lowest post count of anyone on my IL.
I have a UFC t-shirt and thats about it..
I think the TapOut guys are idiots.
theyve put in a lot of hardwork to make their label a success. i dont hate on that.
Tapout has some clothing that I don't think looks that bad and by itself I don't see a problem with people wearing it. The problem with tapout, affliction and other mma brands is the people who wear them thinking it's like the MMA equivalent of Jim Carey in The Mask and it transforms them just by putting it on.
Also the 5'3 white guy in a Shaquille O'neal jersey isn't going to pretend to be him to get pussy.
Ive got a tshirt somewhere,
And @ "qualifications" needed to wear the brand
i have a ufc hoodie that i bought so my gf at the fights two weeks ago because it was fucking freezing at the palm hotel. it's pretty cool looking and not super douchebaggy like most of the tapout stuff
1 Affliction shirt signing in
Real poser here.. two T*U shirts.
I have 1 Affliction shirt (Randy) that my gf bought me for my b-day, 1 UFC shirt that my brother bought me when he was in Vegas, and 1 Rampage shirt that I bought myself... Seriously, if only fighters were allowed to wear mma apparel, then every mma clothing company (t*u included) would go out of business and no fighter would make $$ from the sponsorships...
