Reebok reveals official Conor McGregor walkout t-shirt and fans are not happy

UFC 229: Khabib v McGregor

Since partnering with UFC back in 2015, Reebok is yet to earn the respect of the fans, and this latest Conor McGregor walkout t-shirt design definitely won't help them.

The Adidas subsidiary recently revealed the t-shirt design which McGregor will wear on his way to the Octagon on January 18, 2020 for UFC 246, and fans can't decide whether it's hilariously bad or just plain awful.

The Irishman is currently scheduled to face off against Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone in a welterweight bout next weekend, in what could be McGregor's first win in three years. 

The t-shirt can be purchased from the UFC Store for $60 (£49.95), and people have not taken kindly to it.

"It's the official UFC 246 walkout t-shirt and completely unimaginative", said MMA journalist Luke Thomas, as per MMANYTT.

"I think after all these years, the one constant in Reebok shortcomings is they don't do creative well. They've got some stuff that's simple and clean, but when it comes to creative design, they're just not good at it."

As expected, Twitter found it absolutely hilarious.


One user joked that the design looks more like Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston than the 'Notorious', while another suggested that Reebok get USADA to start drug testing their graphic designers.

Some fans have said that McGregor may well refuse to walk out in such a badly designed t-shirt, but until the Reebok partnership with UFC expires, it looks like he'll be stuck with them for the foreseeable future.

It looks like either Reebok needs to hire a new team or maybe start using something other than Microsoft Paint to create its designs.
