Newcomer Felice Herrig not happy about prospect of UFC uniforms

Felice Herrig

She's one of the newest fighters on the UFC roster, but women's strawweight fighter Felice Herrig is speaking out against the prospect of uniforms in the UFC.

We posted about Dana White's open musing about the possibility of fighters wearing official UFC uniforms. Well one fighter who isn't digging the idea is newly signed women's Strawweight fighter Felice Herrig, who's known for her wild outifts and brash sexual posturing.

Here's what she had to say on Instagram:

"I design and custom make all my weigh in and fight outfits so for me this is a very big deal and a very big part of my brand and image.

A lot of fighters like myself get paid more money from sponsors and a lot is based on marketability and mother style I bring to weigh ins and also the fights. Taking that away takes a lot away from what they are trying to do as far as getting people hooked to WMMA.

It's called business and regardless of what some people might think there is a lot more to a fighters business than just the act of them playing their sport."

Herrig will debut on the 20th season of The Ultimate Fighter.
