Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Clay Guida’s UFC 107 Walkout T-Shirt Is F*ckin’ Rad


Following the Hoelzer Reich fiasco, it’s refreshing to see an MMA t-shirt sponsor that actually gets it right. Sure, there’s a skull in Clay Guida‘s new "Run to the Hills" tee ($40) from Silver Star — which the Carpenter will be wearing during his cage-entrance at UFC 107 — and yes, the skull thing has already been beaten into the ground. But as any metal fan could tell you, that skull belongs to Iron Maiden mascot Eddie the Head. Maybe you would appreciate this more if you had just been listening to "The Trooper" before you saw this. Or maybe you’d be more interested in some of the other signature tees that will be on display this Saturday…

(Cheick Kongo‘s signature shirt from TapouT, $28: Those colors do run.)

(BJ Penn‘s Penn X Limited Edition Tee from RVCA, $32: Wear it to the death.)

(Diego Sanchez‘s spiritually-charged Bad Boy walkout tee, $39.95)

(Kenny Florian‘s zombie-samurai-themed walkout tee from TapouT, $28)

(More zombie-samurai action courtesy of Frank Mir‘s "Uncrushable" t-shirt from Ecko, $28.)

(You won’t see it on Saturday, but if you buy one piece of Kimbo Slice-related apparel, please let it be TapouT’s Doomsday tee, $24. My God, that thing is amazingly hideous.)

They didn't even give Kimbo gold teeth... they just gave him some gnarly ass yellow teeth.

Every single one of those is heinous except BJ's... I'm a fan of minimalism and I took my Maiden posters down when I was like 12.

Holy shit! $40 for a T-Shirt??? Is $20 of it going to the Clay Guida haircut fund?

Guida Tee is insane
The Mir shit is nice
Kongo shit is uninspired but okay on a "it doesnt blatantly suck" level
Florian should wear a Zoolander movie tee (the whole zombie samurai thing would seem to be crazy in concept - until you actualy see it and it just kinda looks dumb)
Kimbo's shirt is, well, lets just say in a cage fight against the other shirts his shirt would fare just about as well as he usually does.
Diego's design could have been more 'in your face' with the religious theme but the artists were so used to doing skulls...

sorry i missed the Pryor-esk humor in your post.
Mike Milbury- December 10, 2009 at 7:34 pm
themcgraw, obviously, I was joking. Keep on trucking buddy with your generic-ass "Fedor's sweater" jokes. Why don't you throw in a "Sexyama" joke or maybe a "YUS Cartwheel" joke since that's all the rage now.
themcgraw- December 10, 2009 at 6:51 pm
only the Fedor "mock" sweater/shirt could beat out this Maiden Special. MIKE MILBURY, YOUR A IDIOT. THE SHIRT WAS MADE AROUND SPOOF OF MAIDEN, YOU MEATHEAD.

@mike milbury: I know it's Clay Guida but it's a blatant rip off of Eddie the Head. Even the typeface is reminiscent of Iron Maiden's.

I'm only gonna wear my Tapout shirts on those nights when I'm prowling the bars for a drunken skank to choke while twittering about it. Man I need to stop hanging out with that Koppenhaver dude.

p.s. I'm afraid that if I buy the Frank Mir shirt that at some point in time I will get my tongue pierced, work at a strip club for dirt cheap, then talk shit about a guy twice my size and end up in the fetal position taking 4xl fists to the dome.

Where's Don Zimmer's walkout?
IRISHLOBO- December 10, 2009 at 2:53 pm
Man, Florian looks like shit in that picture. BJ's shirt should accuse that shirt of greasing!!

You know, I love Florian. But if I hear "RUN TO THE HILLS!!!" I'm going to throw the malocchio at Guida and start banding my head. That's just amazing. How could Bruce Dickinson ever object to the Cro-Magnon Carpenter donning his mascot?

BJ's looks like he made it himself.

No shit. It's refreshingly basic, in a short-bus kinda way.

@ Dubbs:

That's the funniest thing I've read all month!!!
Mike Milbury- December 10, 2009 at 1:37 pm
@Sabado Gigante: Do you work at Pitchfork? Who are those bands (Obviously, the non-Alkiline Trio)?? They any good?
Sabado Gigante- December 10, 2009 at 1:35 pm
If Guida's entrance music was "Twilight" by The Suicide File, it would kick so much ass that I would go out of my way and throw real shit at a real priest...

But yeah, I think the whole Alkiline Trio thing is his way of supporting his hometown scene... Too bad he didn't go with The Smoking Popes...

That Guida tee is badass, i just dont have the hair and cardio to wear it
Dubbs- December 10, 2009 at 1:32 pm
Nice shirts...which begs the question, is there any way for regular people to wear MMA shirts in public without looking like douche bags? there is not.
braydonislegend- December 10, 2009 at 1:23 pm
I really like the Kongo tee. Everyone in the UFC is so cliche with there tee's that they just all look like douches that have no artistic taste. The whole affliction age art tee's really just need to stop! lol. The art is too crowded and confusing, not to mention they make no sense whatsoever. I like simple. But thats just my opinion
Sakuraba3900- December 10, 2009 at 1:12 pm
Damn that is prob one of the best MMA related shirts that has been released. Obviously im talkin about the Run To The Hills Shirt.
Mike Milbury- December 10, 2009 at 1:12 pm
Mir has almost that same graphic on his back (Very recent tattoo?). No color yet. Looks kinda gross.
Mike Milbury- December 10, 2009 at 1:08 pm
@sixthsense: It ain't Eddie. It's Guida if he was a skeleton, getting electrocuted while holding hammers.

@Barc: Doubt it. If you saw the press conference, I think BJ some wacky RVCA t-shirt with a weird graphic of a chick. Anyways, they covered the logo with duct tape. He'll probably just end up wearing one of his ugly non-RVCA shirts from his online store.
steampunk22- December 10, 2009 at 1:07 pm
Mir's shirt is pretty badass. BJ's looks like he made it himself. And Guida's is just fuckin' awesome, I hope he comes out to some killer entrance music and fucks off with that Alkaline Trio nonsense.

sixthsense- December 10, 2009 at 12:57 pm
did Iron Maiden give them the rights to use Eddie?
