MMA’s top clothing brand TapouT has been synonymous with the sport for over 10 years, but their future could hold many changes. Sources close to TapouT have told MMAPrime.TV that the company will soon announce that they are sold or being sold and that sales representatives have already been let go from the clothing company’s headquarters. The source also stated that the new buyer is possibly none other than reputed billionaire Warren Buffett.

Wow, that could be huge for punkass and skrape. They are already a success story, but it could be the icing on the cake.

The Tapout guys are a really cool story in the history of mma. Whatever they choose to do I wish them luck and hope that Tapout is around for many years to come!

If Warren Buffet really did buy this, and if he takes Skrape and Punkass out of the mix, I'm betting TapouT sees a decline in its market dominance. I doubt Skrape and Punkass would want to be completely out of the picture, so it could be a good thing, but if they're out it will surely open the market for other vendors eventually.

Can't say I would support them if Punkass and Skrape are gone.
