You would need belt loops the size of buffet dinner plates in order to use a UFC belt to keep your pants up. When it comes to serving its utilitarian purpose, all UFC belts fail at life. If only society chose to use a studded jean-jacket to signify a combat sports accomplishment instead of a belt then one could see tangible evidence of your success along with recognizing your potential to be featured in an INXS video. One day the MMA world will evolve to that stage, but in the meantime we’re going to have to put up with these ridiculously oversize belts. Just take note that if you’re a fan and purchased a replica belt, don’t expect Jon Jones to sign it. He hates those things. Check out this excerpt from a With Leather interview.
“I would get rid of the replica belts.”
“I hate it when people come up to me with a belt that looks exactly like mine and they ask me to sign it. I worked three times a day for three years to get this [light heavyweight championship] belt, and now this guy asking me for an autograph has one just like it. Are you serious? I mean it’s not as heavy, but it looks just the same.”
“I never sign those belts.”
I worked twenty minutes to write this article, and now people are asking to comment on it? Are you serious. OK, go ahead. [Source]
