UFC 205 is less than two weeks away, and the fever pitch is hitting an all-time high ahead of the first pro MMA event to be held at the fabled Madison Square Garden Arena. Dana White has already gone on record to declare that the ticket sales for the event have broken MSG’s in-house records, fighters on the card are doing double duty with training and marketing the card...all seems to be going swell at this stage.
With all the pomp and circumstance surrounding this event, it’s only fitting that the UFC apparel sponsor, Reebok, should release some extra special gear to commemorate the event. They’ve pulled out all the stops and have just released their NYC-themed fight kits and product line.
MMA Fighting reports that an official announcement will be made sometime this afternoon to unveil the promotion’s first ever event-themed gear.
“We’re excited to reveal our UFC City Pack: New York leading up to our historic event next Saturday at Madison Square Garden,” UFC senior vice president of global consumer products Tracey Bleczinski said in a release. “This New York inspired and limited edition product line represents the strength of the city and its rich fighting history, while paying homage to the historical significance of hosting our first event at The World’s Most Famous Arena.”
Since UFC 205 will likely be the biggest card of the year—of any year to date, the new line is sort of fitting for the magnitude of the event. Below are some extra snapshots of the gear you know you’ll be looking to get your hands on:
