Clinch Gear was all over the Showtime broadcast of last night's Strikeforce Challengers card, with five of the 10 main card fighters wearing our shorts.
Tarec Saffiedine, one of our exclusive team athletes, made an impressive Strikeforce debut with a unanimous decision over James Terry. Saffiedine wore the Primo Pro Series Orange performance board shorts while Terry wore our Classic Black MMA shorts.
In the main event, Sarah Kaufman wore the Pro Series Black MMA shorts in her 135-lb. title bout with Takayo Hashi. Kaufman earned a unanimous decision to claim the championship belt. This was the second time we have sponsored Sarah, and we are proud to have her represent the brand.
Team athlete Paul Bradley also wore the Pro Series Black MMA shorts in his bout with Luke Rockhold. Though Paul lost, we are definitely in his corner and know he'll return with a vengeance.
Finally, Karl Amoussou wore the Pro Series Black MMA shorts versus Trevor Prangley. Unfortunately, the contest was halted prematurely when Amoussou suffered an inadvertent eye poke. We look forward to working with Karl again upon his return to the Strikeforce cage.
