The UFC has announced a new line of fight gear for fighters to wear while battling inside of the Octagon, that new gear has been called the UFC Fight Night Collection.
That first part of the collection is called the Legacy Series, which is new walkout gear designed for fighters headlining UFC cards or competing in title bouts.
“With the new UFC Fight Night Collection, we wanted to give athletes product that meets the quality and performance demands that they depend on in the Octagon, but also offer them an opportunity to let their unique confidence and personalities shine through. Our design, product and research teams have spent countless hours talking to and working with the UFC athletes and MMA community to do just that. We are thrilled to debut our latest iteration of the UFC athlete fight night apparel with the new UFC Fight Night Collection and are committed to constantly reimagining and evolving the Reebok Combat collection to adapt to athlete requirements and appeal to UFC fans,” General Manager Training at Reebok Corinna Werkle said in a press release.
Besides the new walkout gear, the new collections from Reebok and the UFC will provide new designs for the apparel the competitors already wear as they battle it out at UFC events.
UFC fighter Paige VanZant has already had an opportunity to try some of the new apparel out and she’s excited about the new innovations from Reebok.
“The new fit and material is something you notice as soon as you put this gear on. It still offers everything fighters need when it comes to performance, but there’s a new style and attitude to the collection that I’m especially excited about,” says VanZant.
UFC 215 is going to be the first time that the fighters will try out the new gear, that event takes place on Saturday, September 9.
