The new Nike 10AC collection for Japanese MMA fighter Caol Uno blends fashion with function in a variety of interesting color combinations and performance enhancing material mixes. While still relatively unknown in North America, the Nike 10AC offering is a step in a new direction for the innovative sports footwear and apparel giant. The collection combines fashion-forward training gear with some of Nike’s most recent athletic footwear introductions including the Nike Free Everyday +2, Air Rejuven8 and the Air Max 90 Current.
The Nike collaboration with Caol Uno is proof that MMA is quickly evolving into a mainstream sport with global mass appeal. The signature collection takes design inspiration from Uno’s personal style, right down to the 10AC name (Caol spelled backwards).
Nike 10AC footwear and apparel is currently available at Caol Uno’s online store, with more styles coming soon.
FXF Fact: Caol Uno is a popular veteran UFC fighter who recently made his return to the Octagon against Spencer Fisher at UFC 99 in Cologne, Germany. Having been away from the UFC since 2003, Uno’s return to the Ultimate Fighting Championship on June 13, 2009 was a blessing for diehard UFC fans who recall watching Uno in his earlier battles with the likes of BJ Penn, Yves Edwards, Din Thomas and Jens Pulver.
