Are you wondering what the best MMA clothing brands are?
In this article, we’ll look at the 10 best MMA clothing brands in 2023 and beyond, ranked starting with the best. However, the best MMA clothing brands are subjective, so it’s worth checking them all out for personal preferences.
10 Best MMA Clothing Brands
This is a 2023 best MMA clothing brands list, meaning many of the old kings such as Tapout and Bad Boy aren’t on the list because they discontinued their clothing lines and there are new players in the industry.
The official store and Amazon store of each brand will be linked below. It’s worth checking both because the prices and sales can vary between the two.
>Founded: 1993 by Art Davie and Rorion Gracie
The UFC has the most variety of MMA clothing out of any brands on this list. They’re always bringing out new graphic t-shirts and other clothing of UFC fighters.
The clothes can be a little pricey for what they are, but they often have deals where t-shirts go from $35 to $15, so it’s well worth checking out.
They have men’s, women’s, and kid’s sections, plus dedicated men’s and women’s athleisure sections.

Not only is Venum one of the best MMA gear brands, but it’s also one of the best MMA clothing brands. Since becoming the UFC’s official outfitter in 2021, the exposure has led them to ramp up their output and start producing high-quality apparel.
Most of the clothing is form-fitting with quality materials and designs, and it’s also very easy to tell it’s made by an MMA brand. Venum has a men’s, women’s, and kid’s section, and sells a huge variety of clothing including more unusual products like polo shirts and boardshorts.
>Founded: 1999 in California, USA, by Pat Tenore and Conan Hayes
RVCA has been around since 1999 and makes some of the best quality clothing in the MMA industry. The clothes are fairly pricey but the clothes are made with better quality materials and have fantastic aesthetics.

RVCA sponsor UFC fighters Jalin Turner and Rose Namajunas to advertise their combat sports clothing.

6. Dethrone Royalty

Affliction was an early UFC sponsor that also sponsored many of its fighters until 2008, when they formed an MMA promotion and the UFC prohibited Affliction clothing of any kind. Still, they became hugely popular with their shirts featuring Randy Couture, GSP, and Quinton Jackson.
Even in 2023, Affliction has a huge link to MMA and they’re still offering some great clothing. Affliction clothes are known for tight-fitting, vibrant colors, wacky designs, and quality materials. And while they’ve diversified their clothing to capture a larger market, they still make what made them famous.
A lot of their clothes feature skulls, flames, eagles, crosses, and snakes, and alongside their “Live Fast” motto, Affliction clothing was and is the choice of clothing for MMA, rock, and tattoo lovers.
