Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Just When You Thought MMA Shirts Couldn’t Get Any Worse

(Is that Toney’s heart on his sleeve or his swollen tongue?)

I’m not a fan of 90% of MMA clothing. Somehow seeing fat accountants and skinny computer programmers wearing t-shirts covered in skulls, chains and dragons at sports bars on fight nights jaded me I guess. Tapout has become the new Vuarnet or No Fear.

I own a handful of promotions’ shirts as well as a few less gaudy brands, but most of them I was given or won in contests. 

What gets me is that there are fans who will wear just about anything if it says MMA on it, regardless of how terrible the clothing is.

Case in point, you can bet a large number of those in attendance at UFC 118 will be wearing the ridiculous James Toney signature shirt above by Twistd Apparel.

Not only does it look like it was airbrushed by the amusement park vendor who normally hawks Tupac shirts to middle class white kids, it doesn’t even depict what Toney will actually look like come fight night since the artist used a terribly Photoshopped promotional pic from the UFC.

Below on the left is the laughable, obviously altered photo and on the right is a new photo of Toney that was put up on the UFC’s website  a couple of weeks ago.

We’ve taken the liberty of making a more accurate version of the shirt for James’ Octagon debut against Randy Couture that most of us would wear:

(Now that’s a "Lights Out" shirt we can get behind)

Jake Sheilds is so boring...

That ONLY an Imma Mumba Jumba shirt could make him even remotely entertaining.

Not to be a copycat, but I agree that this shirt needs to exist.

The Imma Mumba Jumba shirt is so awesome that it makes me forget how boring Jake Shields is...

The Vuarnet logo sure looks alot like the Insoc flag from "1984". Coincidience? I think not!

I would absolutely pay 20 dollars for an "Imma mumba jumba" shirt. Make it happen, people.

@MR, I agree with your thoughts on MMA shirts in general, and don't understand guys who walk around in "MMA" "Tapout" or "UFC" shirts...I remember pointing some guy out to my brother who was walking like he had a stick up his ass, and arms postured wider than he actually is ( to give the impression that he was a monster; he mustve been around 180lbs on a beer and chips diet). When we got closer the douche was wearing a ufc ball cap and a Tapout shirt - go figure

ANYONE who wears a T-shirt containing a picture of themselves is a

Here is a headline taken from MMA

James Toney's trainers: Randy Couture is going to hospital after UFC 118 bout
....and I couldn't agree more, visit James Toney to see how he's getting along after the "Anal Rape"

James to Randy at bedside: awww muh ma fuckin god Randy I cant believe ya did dat ta me,....ya made me da biotch. Jus' like Orenthawl James.

The back of that shirt should say "Mumble the Mumble...Rumble the Rumble".

You do not buy a tooney shirt.

you get one with every double whopper purchased.
choshow- August 18, 2010 at 11:55 am

All im saying is Toney hasnt seen the abs shown on his walk-in shirt since he was beating kids up for their lunch money in grade school.

Man, that Photoshop thing works great.

No wonder my MS-Paint submissions never win anything. Fuck you, Bill Gates, you owe me some free shit! Cheap-ass muthafucker.

almost as epic as amir sadollah's shirt of him wearing an amir sodallah shirt
"holla fo sadollah"
BoJimbo Spice- August 18, 2010 at 11:06 am
Ah this is the greatest mma shirt ever conceived.
destinationblood- August 18, 2010 at 10:56 am
bottom of his shirt says STD...obviously the tailend of twistd, but youd figure someone would have pointed that out before it was put into circulation

New contest CP:

Worst comment each week gets a Toney walkout shirt...and you can only send it back once you have taken a picture with it on in public.

Dirt- August 18, 2010 at 10:54 am
I can't wait to see him without a shirt, that PS pic looks terrible!
I bet he's a few inches shy of Big Counrty

I like a lot of Triumph United clothes. They don't make use of skulls and crosses a whole lot.

RVCA makes some nice clothes as well.
CAP10- August 18, 2010 at 10:45 am
I like the baggy fit. It's the perfect shirt for a fat kid to wear in the pool.
cecils_pupils- August 18, 2010 at 10:36 am
imma mumba jumba Randy Coture no wam sayn

El Guapo- August 18, 2010 at 10:24 am
Leave those poor middle class white kids out of this. Haven't they suffered enough already??

And it's nawmsayin, not "no wam sayn"... Nawmsayin?
