TUF 9 Finale Fashion Recap

The Ultimate Fighter Season 9 Finale lived up to expectations last night with a flurry of fast-paced fights and knockout clothing from some of MMA’s most popular brands. With a whopping three “Fight of the Night” awards handed out by Dana White for three different match-ups including headliner Diego Sanchez vs. Clay Guida, Chris Lytle vs. Kevin Burns and Joe Stevenson vs. Nate Diaz, it’s safe to say the biggest winners were the sponsors who benefited from the great night of UFC fights and TV exposure on Spike.

With Tapout holding the official clothing rights for TUF season 9, it came with no surprise that the Tapout logo was seen all over the place including fight shorts, t-shirts, hats and banners. Despite Tapout’s dominance, there was more than enough room for other key sponsoring brands to shine as well. Although all pre-fight walkouts (except for the headliner) were eliminated to allow for more commercial air-time, Bad Boy MMASilverstar and Sinister received maximum exposure by outfitting headline fighters Diego Sanchez and Clay Guida, who wore their respective sponsor’s clothing from the locker room to the cage on live TV.

The end result was a 3 round war between the two lightweight contenders who battled it out, bloodied, bruised and battered. At the end of 3 rounds, Diego “Nightmare” Sanchez had his hand held high in victory, showcasing the popular Bad Boy MMA logo across his chest.
