Default UFC Bans Clinch Gear And RVCA

http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2009/11/1...ufc-has-banned

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.

They usually bann them if they are an official sponsor of the promotion itself,not because they sponsor specific fighters.
Silver Star seems to be a pretty big sponsor lately.

BJ Penn ran his last training camp at the RVCA warehouse,
I cannot imagine him cutting ties.
I don't know his official relationship with them, but I had assumed he was part owner?

Also, if Dana hadn't pushed Dan completely out the door he certainly has now,
to say you cannot sponsor people who fight for any other company?
Come on.
Basically they are saying if you want to sponsor UFC fighters you can ONLY sponsor UFC fighters.
Pretty silly.

Kinda like the strong ties Matt has with OMR? That really saved them. . .
