The Melvin Guillard UFC 136 Walkout Shirt by Silver Star has just landed at MMA Warehouse featuring Silver Star and Young Assassin logos and a shooter graphic on a red tee at the heavy-handed Guillard meets Joe Lauzon at UFC 136 with hopes of earning a shot at the winner of UFC 136’s main event between lightweight champ Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard.
Here is the Melvin Guillard Iron Star UFC walkout shirt, which “The Young Assassin” debuted in a win over Jeremy Stephens at September’s UFC 119 and wore again on Saturday when he blasted Evan Dunham at UFC Fight for the Troops 2.
The tee features a black-and-white design that includes a pair of revolvers, “Melvin Guillard,” and “The Young Assassin” in a large front graphic along with a pair of Iron Star logos.
Two of MMA’s top clothing brands are now on the same team and under new ownership, as TapouT and Silver Star have been acquired by Authentic Brands Group in a push for more-rapid expansion.
“TapouT is more than a company or a brand to me, it is a way of life,” TapouT co-founder Dan “Punkass” Caldwell said in a release. “With the passing of my best friend and co-founder Charles “Mask” Lewis, we’ve been through a lot. Now we are focused on continuing to set the standard as the industry leader, bringing to life Mask’s dream of building a billion dollar empire. Authentic Brands Group understands what TapouT is about and they share our vision. Mask always said to simply ‘believe’ and that one word became our formula for success. We believe in Authentic Brands Group and they believe in us.”
TapouT, which also includes the Hitman Fight Gear brand, did more than $200 million in sales of MMA clothing and MMA gear in 2009.
TapouT’s “Punkass” and Tim “SkySkrape” Katz will stay on as the company’s president and marketing/creative director respectively and will also be joined bySilver Star co-founder Luke Burrett, according to Bloomberg.
Anderson Silva and Silver Star have just dropped their next signature shirt. This tee will be Anderson Silvas walkout shirt at UFC 117 as he takes on Chael Sonnen. It comes in either red or grey and has a circular logo on the front with a spider in the middle.
So it looks as if we have MMAWarehouse and MMAOverload going head to head in these exclusive walkout t-shirts now a days. MMAWarehouse is the latest to drop a bomb in the war with the exclsive blue Anderson Silva UFC 117 Shirt. MMAOverload also dropped a Anderson Silva shirt in yellow just a day or two ago. Not to mention both of them coming up with exclusive colorways for the Shogun Rua UFC 113 shirts as well.
For all of you waitin to get your hands on the new Anderson Silva UFC 117 shirt by Silver Star here is another colorway to trip ya up some more. First released in both red and gray, it is now available as an MMAOverload exclusive yellow. This is the tee Silva will be wearing against Chael Sonnen at UFC 117. If you are interested in some more MMAOverload exclusives check out the green and yellow Shogun Rua UFC 113 shirt.
The Silver Star World Domination USA T-Shirt is part of a series from Silver Star which also includes Brazil, UK, Mexico and more. It has a tattered red Silver Star banner across both the front and back, and also an American flag design inside of a large star on the back of this shirt.
Silver Star has once again hit the nail on the head with their Clay Guida UFC 117 Shirt. The Clay Guida UFC 107 shirt was a huge hit, and I fully expect this tee to be as well. The shirt comes in a green, almost tie dyed, design with an Iron Maiden-esque design on the front. Clay will be rockin out with this tee against Rafael dos Anjos on the main card of Silva vs Sonnen.
