UFC Headed For A Fight Over Standard Uniforms?
UFC fighters may get a standard uniform in the not so distant future, just like other professional sports, if a new plan being explored comes to fruition. While a streamlined approach to uniforms could help level the playing field when it comes to fighter sponsorships with revenue being more equitably divided from larger league-wide deals, not every fighter is happy about the prospect of a uniform.
UFC boss Dana White's response:
It's not my f----- problem. Getting sponsorship is a problem. It's tough. it's hard to do. That question is ridiculous. If a guy fights on Fight Pass, first of all, he's getting paid to fight. That's what he's getting paid for. That's what he does. How sponsorship works out for a guy is not my problem. That is not my problem. He's a fighter, he gets paid to fight, period, end of story. Whatever extra money he makes outside of the UFC with sponsors and all that s---, that's his f------ deal.
