Las Vegas, Nev. – to ALL Fans, Artists and Designers, the UFC is asking you to show off your creativity and submit a design that will be worn by Ronda Rousey, the UFC women’s bantamweight champion during her next event. Rousey and the UFC are searching for a creative, unique design that showcases her personality and style. There is no cost to enter and all submissions must be received by Friday, October 31.
Also, including Ronda Rousey wearing the T-shirt, the winning designer will also receive The Ultimate UFC Pack, which includes a limited edition, custom-made EA SPORTS UFC Octagon Kit autographed by Ronda, Monster UFC Octagon™ Headphones and Earbuds, and T-shirts printed with the design. The EA SPORTS UFC Octagon Kit includes with a custom skin Sony PlayStation 4 console and two controllers, a copy of EA SPORTS UFC and a pair of Century UFC fight gloves.
“I’m excited to see all of the designs from our fans,” said Rousey. “Walkout T-shirts are an expression of the fighter and this contest gives one lucky designer the opportunity to be represented as part of the fight night.”
Rousey (10-0, fighting out of Venice, Calif.) has dominated the female sports world over the past few years. She broke through MMA’s glass ceiling and became the youngest Judoka contestant (at 17 years old) to enter the Olympic Games in Athens winning a bronze medal. Ronda’s move to the spotlight followed after she became the first female MMA fighter to sign a contract with the UFC. Since then she has appeared on multiple covers of mags and newspapers including ESPN’s “The Body Issue” and Maxim. She also coached the 18th season of TUF, the UFC’s reality television show The Ultimate Fighter and crossed over into the world of movies, hollywood style, with roles in “The Expendables 3,” “Fast & Furious 7,” and the upcoming “Entourage” movie. Ronda has finished all her opponents inside the Octagon and the fast 16 second knockout victory at UFC 175 in July marked the 3rd time she finished a fighter in less than 30 seconds. Incredibly, 7 of her 10 career victories have occurred in under one minute.

The designs must be original and include the UFC logo and name “Ronda ‘Rowdy’ Rousey” or “’Rowdy’ Ronda Rousey.” Entries should be designed at 300 dpi or be in vector format and saved for web as a 1200 x 1200 JPEG file.
