I find it interesting that TapouT made a gutsy move like this to create a play on the 'Bones Knows' Shirt. This could indeed create a rivalry between the newly minted MMA sponsor Nike and longtime MMA clothing giant TapouT. This was perfect timing to release this shirt, in my opinion. With the fallout of UFC 151, many consider Jones to be the biggest loser and Chael being the biggest winner. TapouT only produced 500 of this limited edition shirt and claims they released it due to popular demand. What do you think of the design?
There has been a ton of hype surrounding the new TapouT "Sonnen Says" shirt that was released this evening. Why you might ask? Well, if you remember, Nike's recent "Bones Knows" shirt was a play on the classic Bo Jackson shirt "Bo Knows" back in the late 80s/early 90s. Well, this shirt has been making waves on Twitter and social media for fanboys of the one and only Chael P. Sonnen.
