Reebok didn't flub Demetrious Johnson's T-shirt; UFC champ plans on changing his nickname


No, Reebok hasn’t struck again.

It looked like the UFC’s official apparel partner had flubbed when it left off the word “Mouse” from Demetrious Johnson’s longtime nickname on his specially made “Legacy Series” T-shirt, which was unveiled as part of a redesign to UFC fight kits today.

But the UFC flyweight champ said he wants it that way.

“I never gave myself the nickname ‘Mighty Mouse,'” Johnson told The Blue Corner. “Hopefully down the road, I’ll change it to just Demetrious ‘Mighty’ Johnson.”

That’s the logo on Johnson’s new walkout T-shirt, combined with a big “X” to mark the spot. Johnson (26-2-1 MMA, 14-1-1 UFC) will wear it for his potentially record-breaking title defense against Ray Borg (11-2 MMA, 5-2 UFC) at UFC 215, which takes place Saturday at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Of course, it makes things a little easier for Reebok not having to worry about the legal ramifications of using the likeness of a copyright-protected cartoon character. Johnson’s own T-shirts leave out the word “Mouse,” as well.

You’ve got to hand it to Reebok, though, for trying to bring back some of the individuality lost when the UFC uniforms were first released nearly three years ago.

Now, if they can just keep their design department from making mistakes like these, everything will be just fine.
