UK MMA Brands?
Who in your eyes are either on the up for UK MMA branded Equipment/Apparel or have cemented a reputation as being a brand leader.
I can think of a few that would deserve a mention:
Toxic, Legacy, Caged Steel, Forca Luta
Anymore that seem to be doing well or offer great products?
i saw an advert for toxic fightwear which made me laugh. fair play, the stuff looks good, but they have 'toxic fightwear ambassadors' - isn't there something a bit odd about that?
'oh hi, I'm an ambassador'
'oh yeah, that's pretty cool - what for?'
Caged Steel have definitely cemented themselves but I've not heard much about them recently.
I still have the shorts they sent me for free a few years back (they offered them on a first come first served basis on the forum) and the bite on the velcro is still go as new - that's the main issue I have with shorts. It's where the first initial UK Bad Boy stuff went wrong.
The stitching, material, even the lace to tie them up is good quality. The only issue was the Caged Steel logo came off after about 2 months but the reason why they gave them away, if I remember correctly, was because they received a duff batch.
anyone remember that vid of scraps risking a serious spine injury demonstrating the toughness of their t-shirts? that looked well dangerous.
i love caged steel t-shirts, they aren't up on the site anymore i don't think
i have those shorts too, revo i think they were called great shorts.

Shameless plug - Caged Steel stuff is now being stocked HERE.
Some of the new designs are awesome, and they're really pushing back into the UK market after concentrating elsewhere for a while.
i still have an unworn caged steel t shirt from 2007/8 with MMA unlimited logos and that on it, love it
