With UFC 118 officially in the books it’s time to rewind for a minute and call attention to a few key standout styles from the past couple of weeks. First off, Boston was a pretty crazy place last weekend with UFC 118 and the UFC Fan Expo in town. Having the chance to check out some of the latest gear from all the top brands in one location during the course of two stacked days was a great time.
In addition to the action that took place during UFC 118 weekend, here’s a quick recap of some of the best new gear to hit the MMA scene over the course of the past week or so.
Jaco Convertible MMA Equipment Bag:
Hands down this is one of the most ingenious equipment bags I’ve ever come across. It transforms from an oversized backpack into an even larger duffle bag. Honestly, what else do you need? Besides all the clever attributes like the rubber mesh paneling for ventilation, massive side storage pockets and an extra plush lined pocket that can be used to store valuables like your cell phone and other precious possessions, the Convertible Equipment Bag is perfect for extended travel or short trips to the gym. Plus it looks great, and above all, it’s comfortable to carry around thanks to the soft padding in the back area and shoulder straps.

RVCA x BJ Penn “Hana Hou” UFC 118 Walkout T-shirt:
Despite catching a second loss against Frankie Edgar at UFC 118, BJ Penn is still one of the best fighters out there. There’s a reason why RVCA created an entire Signature Series collection around him. If you’re like me and appreciate clean and simple styling, this tee should do the trick.

Clinch Gear Joe Warren Signature T-shirt:
Claiming dibs on one of the craziest comebacks in recent history (besides Silva vs. Sonnen of course), Joe Warren took an all-out beating from Joe Soto at Bellator 27 for a round and a half, before coming back “Hulkamania” style and clocking Soto into next year, while taking home the Bellator Featherweight Championship in the process. His signature walkout tee from Clinch Gear basically sums it all up with “Baddest Man on the Planet” written across the back. Missed out on all the action? Check out the video below.
