One of the most common and most important pieces in any contact sport is the protective cup. In Mixed Martial Arts there are many situations where you are happy that you decided to purchase a cup. We recommend that a cup would generally be worn during either training or sparring, but you don’t need to break to bank to buy decent protection. There are plenty of well-priced and low-cost options available on the market. Wearing a cup during training will help you get used to wearing one and will make you feel a lot more comfortable when your drilling techniques, just incase any freak limbs were to fly in that region, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
