Mixed Martial Arts or MMA as its commonly known is the fastest growing sport in the world. MMA clothing is hitting the fashion world hard and has made a big impact across the globe. Many MMA fans see the clothing as street wear, gym wear and casual wear so there is a big market to be filled by the MMA clothing companies.
MMA clothing brand Tapout had revenue of $22.5 million in 2007 with expected sales of $300 million plus for 2010. This huge growth has turned Tapout into a pioneer for MMA clothing and just emphasises the huge economic growth available in the sports apparel industry.
Most of the major MMA clothing brands are based outside of Europe and now thanks to the internet they are available right here in the UK. The best place to buy MMA gear will be on-line as they are nearly always cheaper than high street stores. When shopping on-line you must ensure the company has a secure checkout facility such as PayPal and the company information is available.
Most brands sell T-Shirts, Hoodies, Shorts, Hats/Beanies and Footwear so you can kit yourself out in the latest MMA fashion wear as seen on your favourite MMA fighter. All fighters are sponsored by MMA clothing companies and MMA fans are always looking to support their favourite fighters by wearing the sponsored brand. Some companies even offer a signature series where the fighters input has been incorporated into the design of the garment. Many top fighters see the apparel industry as a profitable business and as the sport grows so does the purse payouts to the fighters, resulting in investment opportunities for the fighters. If you are looking to start any MMA training then may I suggest kitting yourself out with the correct apparel and training at a reputable gym with a qualified trainer.
