This is a perfect partnership for the up and coming RYU, it has the value of enormous exposure in the epicenter of Las Vegas sporting events.
The partnership is also valuable to UFC because it provides a reputable company to the roster of athletic apparel that has previously been banned from some establishments for the negative image they were deemed to promote.
The RYU brand is the ultimate in athletic gear; respecting the needs of the athlete, the honor of the sport, and the sustainability of the natural world that gives rise to all of these essentials.
Inspired by the Mixed Martial Arts athletes of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), RYU has created the finest athletic gear for the sport through innovative design and the commitment to sustainable practices of production.
The UFC is embracing the athletic gear of RYU because the connection is one of primal necessity. The UFC has created the environment for the evolution of professional fighting at its most raw and technical level.
The skill, precision, attitude, and endurance needed to compete in the UFC are at a level that few are ready to meet and they are supported by the hottest athletic wear available to hard core athletes.
There is no place as raw and primal as the Las Vegas strip, baby! This is gearing up to be an epic battle between two exceptional athletes.
Brock Lesnar is an all-around athlete, competing as an amateur and pro wrestler in the WWE, with a small stint in professional football, and ultimately as a premier fighter with the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
He is coming off of his loss to Cain Velasquez where he gave up the UFC heavyweight championship. He is ready to regain his composure.
His opponent, Alistair Overeem, is claiming a 2nd round knockout and that there is no way Brock Lesnar would be able to last even 3 rounds with him.
That is tough talk from a tough fighter. He talks about his intense striking ability and the inability of Lesnar to react well to being hit in the face.
This is sizing up to be an intense battle of skill and will. RYU will be there to represent the sport well.
