The UFC’s outfitting deal with Reebok now makes it so that fighters can only wear Reebok gear, or clothing without a noticeable logo, during media appearances, and fight-week. When fighters don’t follow the protocol, they are either fined, or they have to remove the article of clothing.
When UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold showed up to the UFC 199 press conference yesterday wearing Adidas shoes, adjustments had to be made.
