Good friend of the site and author of “The Human Cock Fighter Blog” here at ProMMA.info, Brian Imes, sent me one of his HILLBILLY FIGHT WEAR T-Shirts this week. I’ve become somewhat of a collector of MMA T-Shirts and already had my eye on the Hillbilly brand for a while now, so I was very happy to get my package in the mail.
Coinciding with their title fight doubleheader “Diaz vs. Noons 2” tonight on Showtime, Strikeforce has pre-launched a new online apparel store at StrikeforceStore.com.
Although it is not MMA news, this definitely bears mentioning. As many of you probably know, Silver Star sponsors athletes across a number of extreme sports. With the addition of Jerome Le Banner, Silver Star has officially thrown its hat into the ring of another combat sport – kickboxing.
(IRVINE, CA) – Silver Star Casting Company has inked their first kickboxer sponsorship with K-1 kickboxing superstar, Jerome Le Banner. Details of the sponsorship include a signature walkout tee for his K-1 World Grand Prix 2009 Final fight on December 5, 2009 against Semmy Schilt in Yokohama, Japan.
Le Banner is famous for his aggressive fighting style, and knockout power. His upcoming fight will mark his 11th appearance at the World Grand Prix Finals.
(IRVINE, CA) – Wanderlei “The Axe Murderer” Silva has signed a sponsorship deal with Silver Star Casting Company for a clothing collection that will include a UFC 110 signature walkout tee for Spring 2010.
With the majority of his fights ending in knockouts or referee stoppage, Silva’s ruthless, street-fighting style has earned him the nickname “Axe Murderer” – a moniker and image that sits well with the edginess of the Silver Star brand.
“Silver Star is honored to be working with one of the most aggressive fighters in the sport,” says Silver Star president and CEO, Luke Burrett. “Wanderlei is a force to be reckoned with and always delivers fans an adrenaline -pumping fight.”

In this edition of PRO MMA’s (promma.info) Fight Gear Spotlight we want to take a look at the MMA clothing company PROJEKT LABEL (www.projektlabel.com).

On the “Team” page of their website it reads, “Projekt Label takes mixed martial arts seriously. We sponsor professional, as well as up and coming fighters and put them in a position that will allow them to support themselves and pursue their dream of becoming an MMA superstar. Our goal is to not only build the best MMA team on the planet, but to also give back to the sport and help it progress.”
