The Baltimore Sun is reporting that Everlast will make its official debut into MMA tonight at UFC 91 with none other than Randy Couture as their lead guy. Couture will reportedly wear Everlast’s new “Omnistrike” shorts in his fight againt Brock Lesnar to help with his overall flexability. According to Everlast, the shorts “provide maximum range of motion, comfort and durability.”
Randy’s made no secret about possibly having to be on his back a lot during tonight’s main event, but he also wants to give himself a chance on the feet and with his wrestling.
Everlast has been a sponsor at Randy Couture’s gym in Las Vegas, Xtreme Couture, for the past few months. It’ll be interesting to see how their relationship grows as Couture’s partnership with Affliction is disintegrating.
