Sprawl is nearly synonymous with mixed martial arts and grappling. Their logo and distinctive designs can be seen, besmirched with blood and sweat, any time you tune your TV to MMA. Walk into a fight gym, look around; someone is gonna be sporting Sprawls. Your grandma has heard of Sprawl shorts before. Speaking of shorts, this is where Sprawl has made their biggest contribution to the MMA fight apparel universe. They literally invented the loose-fit fight shorts that we have all come to love. As much as we love a good pair of vale tudo wedgie makers, we think it’s safe to give a hearty “thanks” to Sprawl for this invention. Not a company to rest on its laurels, Sprawl has continued to push the envelope in fight shorts innovation. When you put on a pair of Sprawls, you can expect well thought out features such as their patented, fully adjustable, Channel Lock™ waistband system that keeps your shorts where you want them when you need them to be there the most— in the cage. They’ve even slightly relocated the ubiquitous split seam side to reduce pesky ride-up while you’re working from your guard. Nobody likes ride-up, especially that training partner that you always end up catching in triangles. You can see high profile fighters such as Forrest Griffin, Josh Koscheck, Gabe Gonzaga and countless other fighters around the world rocking Sprawl shorts on fight night—it’s because they do what they’re supposed to do, and they do it well! In addition to fight shorts, Sprawl has taken their innovative approach to gi pants as well. “Why hasn’t anyone else done this yet?” innovations include a stretch crotch panel, drawstring and Velcro closure, and an inner mesh lining to keep your gi pants from sticking to your legs.
