Today (June 30, 2015) has been a monumental day in the world of mixed martial arts (MMA), as the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has finally revealed their all new fighter uniforms. The UFC signed a blockbuster deal with sports apparel giant Reebok, who has produced the uniforms, in December, and the two companies held a press conference in New York City this morning to reveal the designs.

Up until this point, there has been many mixed reviews from fighters on the deal, with some loving it, and some displaying extreme backlash towards the deal, but today was the first time the fighters actually saw the uniforms.

It turns out that there are three types of uniforms kits: the country kit, the universal kit, and the champion’s kit. The country kit involves specific country colors, and the champion’s kit are mostly black and gold. Reebok has also produced walkout gear including fighter “jerseys”, which are available for purchase by fans, t-shirts, hoodies, track jackets, and sports bras for the female fighters.
