MMA Tee Shirt

If you’re into eating punches, getting it on with a little dirty boxing and like nothing more than some blood spilling ground and pound, you are clearly a cage fighter fan, and over the past few years a vast range of brands have emerged to cater to your passion for the octagonal ring. It doesn’t matter whether you have never raised a fist in anger, or you don’t know your Tito Ortiz’s from your Fabricio Werdum’s, if you just want the ballsy cage fighter look, and love the whole UFC machismo thing, you can buff up, trim down and look right on the button with cage fighter gear.

Affliction Tee Shirt

Affliction Tee Shirt

Affliction is one one of the best selling bad boy – or bad girl brands out there, brimming with machismo, lots of tattoo and skull inspired imagery, as well as the enduring motto – live fast. Their clothing is constantly changing and the choice is huge, whether your looking for a walk out tee shirt or a menacing hoodie.

American Fighter Tee Shirt

American Fighter Tee Shirt

American Fighter is an Affliction sub brand which focuses more on the fight theme with big blocky typo strong tee shirts.

Punishment Athletics Tee Shirt

Punishment Athletics

Punishment Athletics is another cool brand that endorses the cage fighter ethos with a range of graphically powerful tee shirts and accessories.

UFC Hoodie

Anyone who knows even a little bit about cage fighting will have heard of the UFC. UFC – which stand for Ultimate Fighting Championship – is the largest mixed martial arts promotion company in the world, which hosts most of the top-ranked fighters in the sport and produces events worldwide. Based in the United States, the UFC has eight weight divisions and enforces the Unified Rules of Mixed Martial Arts. Dana White serves as the president of the UFC while Frank and Lorenzo Fertitta control the UFC’s parent company, Zuffa, LLC. Needless to say, there is any amount of UFC branded leisure wear out there.

Tough guy watches

OK, so you have this bad boy tee shirt and hoodie look going on, now you need a watch to go with it. You could of course opt for a cheap stainless steel Affliction branded watch, but let us assume you have a more rarefied and educated sensibility when it comes to watches. Here is a selection of watches that are born hard, designed for adventurers, explorers and military types, and tough though they are, we have not opted for the obvious route of a Casio G-Shock.

Nite Watches CR8 300T Chronograph

Nite Watches

Nite is a British watch brand which designs its own range of stylish, tough and sporty watches. The Chrono CR8-300T is possibly the coolest looking watch in the Nite collection being stealth-like in design with graphite dial and bezel numerals, red second hand and blue and orange GTLS illumination. With a black PVD case and ultra tough polymer strap it will give that added aura of machismo matched with your walk out tee shirt.

Wyler Genève Code-R

Wyler Geneve Code R

The shock-absorbing case design of the Swiss made Wyler Genève Code-R collection employs robust yet lightweight materials such as titanium and carbon fibre resin as the basis for what is a big, tough watch. The movement is sealed in a titanium container held in place by a carbon-fibre frame to which the upper and lower metal plates are fixed by means of titanium screws mounted on springs. This leaves the movement suspended inside the watch, allowing shocks to be absorbed using a principle similar to that of a car’s suspension.

SAS Watches Sea Classic 01

SAS Sea 01 Classic

This is the first watch ever produced by Ireland based, but Swiss made watch brand SAS Watches. The watch is designed for plenty of action above or below sea level. The watch is designed to plenty of  abuse in tough environments, but in their own words, you can swap a dry suit for a dry Martini, with an easy system to change the look of the watch, by simply using the supplied Allen key to change the strap.

Kobold Phantom Tactical

Kobold Phantom Tactical

The Phantom, from American watch brand Kobold is a tactical chronograph, created in cooperation with some of the nation’s leading military and law enforcement trainers, Special Forces members, and Green Berets. Its name highlights the fact that it features a black stainless steel case and matching black stainless steel bracelet. As such, it is not only optimally disguised among the black tactical equipment and clothes worn by these professionals, it is also the most recognizable Kobold watch when worn with civilian clothes. However we have chosen the limited edition silvered dial version.

Luminox Atacama 1920 series

Luminox Atacama Filed Day Date

Swiss brand Luminox make tough, reliable watches with tritium gas indices that are said to last for up to 25 years. Field watches are one of the most-loved and enduring watch styles worldwide. They have long been the staple of military watch design, often worn by those in law enforcement, but today are most often seen as gear for the adventurer or outdoor enthusiasts, and of course, wannabe cage fighters. The Luminox’s Field series watches come in either 42mm or 47mm stainless steel cases and are available in either day/date or chrono/alarm versions, with our exclusive sound box construction that amplifies the alarm sound. The Luminox versions of the venerable field model are as one might expect, a little bigger and bolder, a bit more rugged.
