Since 1996 with Marco Ruas being the first big name fighter to endorse the brand the list of fighters who have been part of Team Revgear over the years is like a who’s who of the Mixed Martial Arts world. Notable entries to the list would be Brazilian stars from the Kings MMA stable led by the legendary Kings MMA Coach Rafael Cordiero such as Fabricio Werdum and Renalto Sobral, American fighters such as Ben Rothwell , Jamie Varner & Dwayne Ludwig or more close to home the now face of UFC Europe Dan Hardy and the Poster boy Jimi Manuwa.
But the article here is not about the past it’s about the future; there is a wind of change in the fight game as it has wised up, got lean and progressed to become a far more professional sport. The entry of mainstream sports brand Reebok into the UFC has certainly changed the face of sponsorship platforms and whilst only a short time ago athletes were happy to accept marketing dollars from fashion based fight brands whilst privately buying their own gear for real work in the gym the movement now is much more in line with other sports where the endorsement of a brand by an athlete will be because the equipment the brand provides is required for the athletes training.
To Mark the 20th anniversary of the brand REVGEAR re launch in both Europe and later in the year in their native USA. There are many new lines, designs, colours and styles in the pipeline and to match Team REVGEAR Europe also re launches with some loyal old faces such as Mike Wilkinson, Arnold Allen, Alex Enlund, Shaj Haque and Nathaniel Woods whilst welcoming new faces such as top UK Boxer Jon Lewis Dickinson, UFC Fighter Davey Grant, Matt Inman and promising Irish MMA prospect Tommy Quinn with room for one or two more along the way.
The Athletes we work with at REVGEAR match the brands attitude, style and ambition. Dedicated, Professional, talented and representing the new generation in the world’s top combat sports. In the early part of 2016 we have two massive events in Europe with #UFCLondon where we are represented by Mike Wilkinson, Arnold Allen and Davey Grant whilst on the same night #BAMMA24 in Dublin Ireland hosts many up and coming fighters where RGE are represented by Nathaniel Woods, Nathan Jones and Bola Omoyele to name but a few.
If you want to join Team Revgear at some point in the future make sure you start by making the REVGEAR brand part of your everyday kit bag, know the gear and show you want to be part of the new generation then when you are ready, when your record is glowing and the bigger stages await we look forward to hearing for you and adding your name to the list of elite fighters with #RGE2016
