Silver Star Casting Teams With MMA Champ “Suga” Rashad Evans To Create The First Signature Fighter Clothing Collection

I received a press release today from Silver Star Casting Company. You may remember Silver Star as the company that designed GSP's, Rashad Evans's, Karo Parisyan's and Rob Emerson's walk-out shirts for their most recent UFC matches. Or you may remember them from the interview I did with Luke Burrett, the company's owner.

After the jump you'll find the latest press release from Silver Star about the new Signature Fighter Clothing Collection they are designing with Rashad Evans. This is another good development for sponsorships in MMA.


From the Press Release

Silver Star Casting and “Suga” Rashad Evans are both undefeated, on the rise, and serious contenders. With the union of two industry forces, Silver Star and Evans are creating a full collection of premium tops and accessories inspired by the the line's signature high-octane look, and Evans' status as an undefeated MMA champion.

Evans, who holds the Light Heavyweight champion title, is best known for defeating MMA star, Chuck Liddell, and " The Ultimate Fighter 3" winner Michael Bisping. Most recently, Evans defeated Forrest Griffin, the winner of the first season of “The Ultimate Fighter” reality TV show, and retained his title of Light Heavyweight champion.

Rapidly becoming the clothing choice for MMA fighters and fans, Silver Star Casting Company's series of premium signature fighter shirts will be expanded to include the first full signature fighter collection, in collaboration with “Suga” Rashad Evans.

By working with Rashad, we've brought a champion from the fight world into the apparel industry to bring a whole new vision and feel to the marketplace” says Silver Star owner, Luke Burrett. “Rashad has Silver Star's full support and together we're introducing a product line fight fans can wear with pride.”

The “Suga” Rashad Evans signature collection will include the Silver Star's signature graphics, premium cuts, and envelope-pushing details. The collection will hit stores in May 2009.

Silver Star Casting is a cutting-edge company that's not afraid to break the rules. With roots firmly planted in hard-rocking and ass-kicking, its full line of men's and women's shirts, outerwear, fleece, headwear, jeans, shoes, belts, buckles jewelry, and watches can be found in over 2000 stores worldwide. www.buysilverstar.com
