UFC Bans Clinch Gear And RVCA
News is that the UFC has banned Clinch Gear (Dan Henderson's MMA Clothing line) after UFC 105. There was a good amount of Clinch Gear shown throughout the CBS Strikeforce broadcast.
There is also a strong rumor that the UFC has banned RVCA after they sponsored Fedor and appeared on the CBS Strikeforce card as well, though the brand has close ties with BJ Penn, so it would definitely be an interesting scenario if the rumor is true.
these bans tend to be temporary.
Perfect! Now Affliction Trilogy can finally take place, and the name will make more sense too!*
I cant believe how much that affliction **** costs
nearly £100 for a hoody and £40 a t shirt... A 'UCKIN' TSHIRT?
Oh noes! Now BJ will have to color in the blackbelt on a crappy pair of white tapout shorts.
Haha, I got banned from bloodyelbow today. Turns out the internet is different outside Bullshido.
This is the UFC trying to put more pressure on Strikeforce. It's hoping to keep it's 'A' level sponsors exclusive. It will work for a short period of time. If Strikeforce continues to grow in popularity, however, the UFC will have to reconsider.

If strikeforce dies, then an antitrust judge may very well not give them a choice. There are penalties for being too good at destroying your competition.
