Noticed that at BAMMA 10 Jack Marshman was wearing Adidas MMA shorts
Anyone know anything about this deal
Thought it would be quite big news as adidas are the worlds 2nd largest sports apparel company
Im sure he probably didnt get paid a huge amount but its still quite a big deal in terms of brand association
Did a quick search on google but didnt find much except for a few images of the gear
Not the sort of designs id expect from adidas (quite cagefighter cliche) so thought it may be an adidas licensee like some of their boxing equipment
Addidas sponsored the show I fought on Sweden last month, put up a lot of the money towards the event I'm told, all the equipment used were their own and the US team were kitted out in their rashguards and shorts
Fuck, how did I not hear about this? Two of my favourite things in life, Adidas and MMA, combined in such an unholy matrimony!
I am so sorry, Venum. It's not you, it's me. I think we just might not be right for each other anymore :(
Adidas have always made the best trainers :)
I may look in to this further thanks for the news :)
they have done shorts and gis for ages
here are some of them here
David Bielkheden mentioned something about Adidas sponsorship when I interviewed him a while back I seem to recall.
He wore Addias gear for his Cage Warriors fight and probably will do tomorrow too

They've been in combat sports for ages and mma for a little while now, not sure why this is such a big surprise. It's a shame that their mma stuff looks fucking terrible with designs that resemble a 3rd rate regional British "fightware" brand.
