Matt Brown on rumoured fighter uniform: I don’t care what I wear to the cage

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

In the second part of Bloodyelbow.com’s interview with Matt Brown, the welterweight competitor discusses the rumored fighter uniforms and how he feels about them.

Matt Brown is not giving the rumored UFC uniforms much thought - particularly if it is not going to negatively affect his potential income.

Over the past few months, rumours and pictures regarding the plans to institute official UFC uniforms have seeped into the public, leading to a variety of opinions on the potential long-term losses that could result from this deal.

These rumours have encouraged responses from the likes of UFC strawweight competitor Felice Herrig and former UFC middleweight Nate Quarry, who questioned the financial benefits this uniform would offer fighters.

"The Immortal" was not quite as concerned as some of his fellow fighters. His position is simple: as long as the uniform does not mean a loss in income, he is on board with the idea.

"It is not something that I feel I have any real control over. I don't know any of the details about it so it is really hard to offer a comment. Hopefully, we either make more money or at least don't make any less money.

"If one of those two things happen then it shouldn't be a problem."

The latest rumours hinted at a potential deal with Under Armour, which UFC President Dana White insisted had not come to fruition even though the company's CEO was present at UFC 172 in Baltimore.

If the deal were ever finalized, it would mean the homogenization of fighter sponsorships, and the implementation of similar uniforms for the walkouts to the cage, which Brown is indifferent about.

"I don't care what I wear to the cage to a certain degree. It is all about do we make as much money or less money. As long as one of those two things happen then it makes no difference."

Brown is scheduled to meet touted Brazilian Erick Silva in the main event of UFC Fight Night 40 next week. The third and final installment of this interview will detail his thoughts on the upcoming match-up and why he believes he should be granted a title shot should he win against Silva.
