Smuggling Duds first burst on to the MMA scene back in November 14, 2009 at the UFC 105 weigh-ins, Manchester, UK. The weigh-ins saw TUF 9 UK vs USA winner Ross “The Real Deal” Pearson, runner up Andre Winner and welter-weight standout “Slick” nick Osipczak wear their designer underwear on the scales.
Since then they have gone from strength to strength with top UK fighters such as Dan “The Outlaw” Hardy, Jimi “Poster Boy” Manuwa, Curt “The War” Warburton, Colin “Freakshow” Fletcher, “Beautiful” Che Mills, Bradley “Bear” Scott, Mike “The Warrior” Wilkinson, Phil “Billy” Harris, Andy “The Little Axe” Ogle, Phil De Fries, Rob “C4” Sinclair and Dean “The Renegade” Amasinger all wearing them on weigh in day.
Smuggling Duds is fast becoming the underwear brand of choice among elite athletes from the world of motocross, kite surfing, touring cars and of course mixed martial arts.
