It didn’t mean to put a rhyme in the post title, but saying “gear” just feels better then “merchandise” when talking about a brand like this. No Fear is a lifestyle clothing brand that was created in 1989 by Mark Simo, and Brian Simo. They started in 1989 and really hit the scene in the early to mid 90s. Everyone had No Fear shirts… I know I did.
Do you remember No Fear shirts? They had sayings on them, most of the time it would be a situation in which a person was required to show ‘no fear’. A sports example of a No Fear shirt I had was something like “Bottom of the ninth. Bases loaded. Full Count. Two Outs. No Fear.”
Here are more No Fear saying I found online:
- Don’t let your fears stand in the way of your dreams.
- Losing is for those who are afraid to risk everything to win.
- Commitment isn’t the time you spend, it’s the line you cross.
- Few are born with it. Even fewer know what to do with it.
- Fear is in the eye of the beholder, don’t let it be you.
- Play hard, play rough or take your ball and go home.
- It is far better to have played and lost, then not to have played at all.
- A champion is someone who gets up, even when he can’t.
Now No Fear has an awesome line of MMA gear. Check out some of the shirts we have:
Are there any cool No Fear sayings you remember?

Mixed Martial Arts is one of the fastest growing sports across the globe. On Saturday night, UFC 94 was held in Las Vegas. The premier fight was a rematch between two of the leagues best pound for pound fighters, BJ Penn and Georges St-Pierre. Here is the lead UFC.com was selling fans on:
In March 2006, top welterweights Georges St-Pierre and BJ Penn fought for the division’s No. 1 contender’s spot. St-Pierre earned a razor-thin split decision and went on to win the Ultimate Fighting Championship welterweight title. Penn dropped to the lightweight division and won the organization’s 155-pound title.
Now they’re about to do it again. But this time, there’s much more at stake. UFC lightweight champion BJ Penn looks to be the first fighter in history to hold two UFC championships at the same time when he faces Georges St-Pierre for the UFC welterweight championship at UFC 94: ST-PIERRE VS. PENN 2, live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Millions of viewers tuned in to Pay Per View to watch this fight. In 4 rounds, George St. Pierre was able to defeat BJ Penn by TKO. Penn is now 1-3 lifetime when fighting in the 170 lb class, a weight class he should never climb to again.
GSP’s win has brought about talks of whether or not he’s the best 170 lb fighter of all-time? He boasts an 18-2 record at that weight, but in my opinion needs to win more title defenses to earn the title of “best of all-time.” Matt Hughes may have lost his belt to GSP back in 2006, but he still holds a 43-7 lifetime record.
Who do you think is the best welterweight fighter?
