Bryce Mitchell faces Andre Fili in a featherweight division attraction this Saturday Night at UFC Vegas 12 and the fighter will do so with a highly coveted piece of gear.
UFC President Dana White revealed on Twitter that Mitchell will fight Fili this weekend with a pair of Reebok camo shorts, made especially for him:

There is no word at this time if Mitchell’s camo shorts are a one-off or if the fighter will have them as a permanent part of his fight gear going forward. MMA Junkie also reports that this is the first time a fighter will wear customized fight gear during the UFC-Reebok partnership, which comes to an end in early-2021.
