We owe a lot to Joe Rogan, as he's been a huge supporter (no pun intended) of Diamond MMA for years. He even managed to crash our original website many years ago with his first shoutout of our products on his show. On a recent show with Greg Fitzsimmons, Joe got into just what he loves about Diamond MMA.
My name is Tyler Diamond & I'm a 25 year old professional MMA fighter out of Team Alpha Male in Sacramento, California. I currently have a record of 5 wins with 0 losses. 4 of those wins coming by way of KO & TKO. I wrestled from when I was 11 years old till I graduated college. I wrestled at North Dakota State, a division 1 program & fought amateur MMA while competing in wrestling.
Not really, but Diamond (@DiamondMMA) reached out to one of MMA's most prominent figures, "Big" John McCarthy, and he likes our design and feel. He's just been lucky enough to avoid a nut shot so far. Once he does get hit down there while wearing Diamond, he'll realize the product's full protective potential. We are honored that a man who's spent his entire career protecting professional athletes would enjoy our safety gear!
So a couple months ago I made a thread asking why the Diamond MMA compression shorts were $110.00 when the Jaco compression shorts were only $49.00. All of the compression shorts in the UG store were in the ballpark of $49.00 or cheaper and the Diamond MMA compression shorts were more than twice the price. I hadn’t even heard of the Diamond MMA shorts before. I asked for some reviews from anyone who had them and several people said they were great but most of the posters thought that $110.00 was a ridiculous price for what seemed like regular old compression shorts.
Well the powers that be over at the Diamond MMA HQ got wind of my sarcastic ass thread and Craig Diamond (the Kirik of Diamond MMA) hit me up on Twitter to offer me a free pair of the shorts in exchange for an honest review that I’d post on the UG. Well honesty is my numero uno policy and my balls are my numero uno priority, thus my review is born.
