UFC and Reebok- Uniforms for Fighters?

Apparently UFC has joined up with Reebok (surprise, they still exist!) for a mutually beneficial relationship: Reebok will pump money into the organization- presumably to the benefit of the fighters- and in return fighters will wear more standardized uniforms in competition.

But… Other than Metamoris, where else will I be able to see Josh Barnett in a speedo?

On the one hand, if it benefits the fighters and helps avoid potential wardrobe malfunctions that have happened in the ring before (remember the guy who basically just wore underwear?), then I’m all for it. Some fighters have voiced their approval of the decision, saying it takes the burden of chasing down sponsorship money off of them, and helps to legitimie the sport. Other fighters however have an issue with this partnership, citing that it means the death of sponsorship money from smaller companies, or just are balking at the idea of uniforms, including (surprise, surprise) one of the Diaz brothers (at this point I feel like they are just caricatures of people, not actual human beings anymore).

We’ll see how the deal plays out, I guess. What do you guys think? An awesome development for the sport, or a detriment? Let me know- otherwise, have a great day!
