Following the final UFC event of 2013, here’s a recap of some of the UFC 168 clothing that was worn during the night’s main card. After watching Chris Weidman retain his title with a win over Anderson Silva and Ronda Rousey defeating Miesha Tate in the co-main event, here’s a quick rundown of the walkout shirts, fight shorts and other gear that was worn to war. Trying to track down your favorite fighter’s gear? Scroll down to scope out what the UFC 168 main card competitors wore during the biggest fight card of the year.
In the night’s main event Chris Weidman once again represented Bad Boy from head to toe while wearing a charcoal version in his Bad Boy UFC 168 Walkout Shirt. The same shirt was also released in black in the days leading up to the fight. During the match, the defending champ sported a blue & black pair of Bad Boy Legacy II Fight Shorts. On Friday night before the event, Weidman wore the Bad Boy Sphere Compression Shorts while stepping on the scale during the UFC 168 weigh-ins.
Although Anderson Silva was expected to wear Nike once again similar to his past few fights, the Swoosh was nowhere to be seen at UFC 168. It is assumed that Nike wasn’t approved as an official UFC sponsor for this fight, which would be the reason for the brand’s disappearance from the Octagon. However, Nike did release a new signature tee in the Nike Anderson Silva “Fight with Honor” T-Shirt in the weeks leading up to fight night. Silva also appeared in a few new Nike Pro Training ads during the days leading up to UFC 168.
During the co-main event, the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey once again defended her title while representing the UFC during her walkout and match against Miesha Tate. Rousey entered the Octagon while sporting a performance version in her UFC 168 Women’s Walkout Shirt, as well as a signature UFC hoodie. Her cornermen walked out wearing the men’s version in her new signature tee.
In the highly anticipated women’s match-up, Miesha Tate challenged the champ while wearing a Venum top and fight short/skirt combo. This was the second time that Tate wore Venum since joining the UFC. During her entrance to the Octagon, she wore her Affliction Miesha Tate UFC 168 Walkout Shirt, while her corner crew sported a men’s version in the “Cupcake” signature tee.
In the night’s main heavyweight battle, Travis Browne made quick work of Josh Barnett while sporting some of his sponsors inside the cage including MusclePharm and Triumph United. Spotted above is the heavyweight contender sporting the new Triumph United “Protect the Family” Shirt, although he entered the Octagon wearing a MusclePharm logo tee. During the match, Browne wore these Triumph United Fight Shorts.
Sticking with his love for Death Metal, UFC heavyweight veteran Josh Barnett gave us a preview of his newest “Smashed Skull” signature signature shirt while stepping out to the cage. After introducing us to his “Refusing to Die” walkout shirt back at UFC 164, the “Warmaster” wore a black version in his newest tee during his entrance, while representing Hayabusa during the fight in the red Hayabusa Haburi Compression Shorts.
Showing his well-rounded skills inside the Octagon with a submission win over BJJ ace Fabricio Camoes, Jim Miller represented his sponsors in top form while sporting HEADRUSH during his walkout and Venum inside the cage. A new addition to the HEADRUSH team, the lightweight contender wore the Brass N Chains T-Shirt and HEADRUSH cap shown in the banner above during his Octagon entrance, while sporting the Venum Sharp “Red Devil” Fight Shorts during battle.
Also victorious for the HEADRUSH team was featherweight standout Dustin Poirier who once again represented his primary apparel sponsor well with a first round TKO finish of Diego Brandao during the main card’s opening fight. Poirier entered the cage wearing his Diamond Signature Shirt shown above, while sporting a pair of HEADRUSH fight shorts during his quick victory over Brandao.
