There’s no thrill quite like owning a genuine piece of UFC fight worn gear, and many collectors are increasingly turning to gloves, fighting shorts, tape, cage banners and hats.  True fans are increasingly turning toward authentic gear, and in-fight items are increasingly popular today. Fight worn gear is a great investment to truly own a piece of UFC history and allows collectors to connect with their favorite fighters throughout their careers.

Since each modern UFC event is filmed, you can trace the individual item on tape for authenticity. Many collectors are investing in pieces such as Shane Corwin championship signed trunks and weigh in gear from modern champions. With a full 360 degree UFC fighting video, you can pinpoint the position of the gear in UFC lore to authenticate its true value. By making sure you have a genuine, authentic in-fight piece you can further increase the overall value of your collection.

Tips for Smart Fight-Worn Gear Collecting

eBay is a natural outlet for finding fight worn trunks, shirts, gloves and other items, some of which pop up online on a fairly regular basis.  Be sure to do some research on the item--and the seller--to ensure you've got the real thing.

Another creative way to invest in fight-worn gear are through charity auctions, many of which are officially sanctioned by the UFC. These included a series of Forrest Griffin championship gear which was auctioned in the past year. You can also find collectors and charity auctions on major sites which can help you support good causes at the same time. Reputable sellers and buyers are often dedicated to the larger mission of helping those less fortunate, a mission established by UFC president Dana White.

With the rise of MMA fight-worn gear on many collectors’ sites, it becomes increasingly important to ensure the authenticity of the particular pieces. The UFC certifies many in fight gear items, ensuring their value and genuine identity in advance of investments.   Eventually, those also hit eBay and the secondary market as collectors move out items to make way for others.

A lot of UFC fight worn gear makes its way into Topps' trading card products.  Swatches adorn cards of specific fighters, creating a unique collectible.  This is one of the more economical and space-saving ways to collect UFC memorabilia.
