This is what the UFC fighters recieve before each event:

Fighter must bring 2 pairs of shorts to the event. Shorts must not match in color OR coordinate at least 3 weeks prior with the other camp to make sure you are not wearing the same color as your opponent. Call me if you need help coordinating.

ABSOLUTELY NO pornography, tobacco, profanity, gambling/gaming, hard liquor, or other MMA orgs allowed as sponsors. Affliction and Extreme Couture products will not be permitted either.

ABSOLUTELY NO SPONSORS THAT COMPETE WITH UFC EXCLUSIVE SPONSORS WILL BE APPROVED. UFC Exclusive Sponsors: Supplements – Xyience (No other supplement company); Tires: Toyo Tires; Beer: Anheuser-Busch Products (Bud/Bud Light); Motorcycles: Harley Davidson.

Make sure you get your Sponsorship Request Forms filled out and faxed to the UFC office ASAP. The deadline is ******. If it’s printed on fighter clothing or cornerman clothing for any event activity, it has to be on that request form. Don’t finalize any sponsorship deals until your sponsors have been cleared by the UFC.

Plan on being tested by the State Athletic Commission for any illegal substances.

Just thought it was interesting to see what they are allowed to wear and that, not trying to start a fight.

Question: With the signing of Anheuser Busch (Bud-Light), is Micky's still the main Premium Malt Liquor sponsor of the UFC?

Word on the streets is that only fighters no longer tendered UFC contracts will be on the future Mickey's cans.

Apparently the Elvis Sinosic Mickey's can comes out in May.

We should sponser a fighter. I'd get a kick out of seeing a fighter with mmaplayground.com on his ass.

Not a horrible idea, it might be hard to all agree on one fighter though

thats an awesome idea......we'd just have everybody request fighters and the top requested fighters be put into a poll by the mods....just a thought though

Why not Anderson Silva? I think everyone would be down. He is pretty open about sponsorships from what i hear.

MMAPlayground.com isn't allowed to sponsor fighters. I talked to Kalib Starnes manager back at Hostile Territory in October. He said that fantasy sites which use gambling weren't allowed. Plus, you also have to think about UFC trying to run their own fantasy thing as well. It really is a great idea but wouldn't work. However, we could probably sponsor an HDNET, Strikeforce fighter if the site wanted to.
