This weekend, Bryce Mitchell will be of rocking custom Venum/Realtree camo shorts at UFC 272.
Camo shorts are essential to the No. 11 ranked featherweight. After his complete domination of Charles Rosa at UFC 249, he told UFC president Dana White that he wanted camo shorts for his next fight. He got them. Reebok made a unique pair just for him, and he fought in them against Andre Fili. Mitchell hasn’t fought since then because of a broken hand.
When the UFC switched clothing sponsors to Venum, no one knew if the Arkansas fighter would get his camo shorts. Well, it was revealed on Wednesday that he got him. He wrote on Twitter, “U bet ur ass I got em.”

Mitchell Was Praying About It
Mitchell explained how the UFC and Chief Business Officer Hunter Campbell got him the shorts during UFC 272 media day.
“Yes sir, I got them,” Mitchell said at the UFC 272 media day. “I’ve really got to thank God and I’ve really got to thank Hunter Campbell. You wouldn’t believe the power of prayer, brother. About three weeks out from this fight, Hunter Campbell was saying ‘we can’t do it, there ain’t enough time, the Venum factories are shut down.’ My entire family was down on their knees praying, I was down on my knees praying, I had people in my inner circle praying.
“Two weeks or a week out from this fight I called Hunter Campbell and said, ‘listen brother, we can make this happen, I know we can. There’s a guy in Nashville that can do it. You’re missing out on a huge demographic.’ We were laughing, and he said ‘let me make some phone calls.’
After that phone call with Hunter Campbell, Mitchell knew he would get them.
Mitchell fights No. 10 ranked Edson Barboza this Saturday on the main card of UFC 272.
