Another One Bites The Dust, RVCA Banned From Sponsoring UFC Fighters

As was pointed out by our friends at BloodyElbow, BJ Penn’s t-shirt during today’s press conference had black tape covering up the shirt’s logo and it was learned that it was the RVCA clothing line.

RVCA has long been a sponsor of many UFC fighters, in particular Penn.

According to reports, the UFC has removed RVCA as a sponsor for all of their fighters due to the clothing line’s affiliation/sponsorship of Fedor Emelianenko.

It seems as though RVCA has been banned since sometime in November, but today was the first sign that they are indeed off of the UFC’s friend’s list.
