Maybe most of you are unaware how much Tapout the company did for early MMA in the nineties. Those guys busted their butts driving around the country supporting the sport.
For years, I felt the same way most of you guys did. Then I realized that wearing a Tapout shirt is equivalent to wearing a football jersey. It's a way for the fans to express their support for MMA. So, while I would not be caught dead in any Tapout gear myself, I no longer hate Bubba, the 350 lb slurpie junkie, that goes out with his best Tapout shirt on in the evening.
