Out-Dun MMA is an apparel company located in Melbourne, Australia where MMA is still in it’s infant stages of growth. I meet the owner Anthony on Facebook andwe talked several times about MMA in Australia and in the states. The dude is a really laid back guy that knows the sport and wants to bring great MMA apparel to his Country. Out-Dun fight gear range from shirts and shorts to head gear and gloves and all can be found here. Out-Dun’s gear is very reasonably priced compared to other’s and even though it’s shipping from Australia the shipping is also reasonable. I sat down with Anthony (via the Internet) to ask him some questions so we can better understand what Out-Dun MMA really is.
Well I started training in BJJ and MMA in mid 2004 so I created Out-Dun MMA in 2006. I wanted to bring MMA and BJJ to Australia, we didn’t really have good suppliers of MMA Gear. In 2004-2006 all our Gi’s, rash vests, shorts, etc had to be imported from either Brazil or USA. I wanted to create and design the best possible products to train with for the athletes of both BJJ and MMA. I look at our products firstly from a fighters point of view then I design it with a marketing view. If you cant train with it then I wont do it, that’s why I wanted to start my own product line.
» Why did you choose MMA?
» What makes your apparel line different then the others?
Our drive comes from the fighters point of view or the people who love to train. I don’t look at whats in or what out I look at what I want as a fighter so I go to them and that’s something that most if not all companies don’t do, they just wanna sell their products to you and that’s it. I don’t, I want you to be happy from the time you buy it to the day it can not be used anymore.
» Do you sponsor any fighter?
I have a few local fighters who I am sponsoring and I got a couple well known guys who will turn some heads soon so watch out for them (sorry can’t name any names)
» Where do you see your company at in the future?
I want to see Out-Dun MMA grow in every way possible. I predict really huge things for us and as long as I have the support from the fighters and all the public who love the sport, I think the sky is the limit.
Thanks to everyone who has supported Out-Dun MMA over the years and I also wanna thank Josh at MMA VALOR for his continued support, Cheers!!
