The recent Reebok deal that has fighters in an uproar has now affected longtime MMA apparel brands such as Fight Chix. Fight Chix, which has been around since 2006, has been major brand in the sport and been welcomed by the UFC brass to any and all functions. However, Nuesser was surprised to receive an email stating Fight Chix is not welcome to this year’s Fan Expo in Las Vegas, nor are any other brands as Reebok will be the only apparel company at the event. Not too pleased, and with good reason, Nuesser went into great detail about how this affects Fight Chix, fighters, other companies involved in MMA and how she plans to remedy the situation.
