SOME OF CAGED STEEL’S RANGE...
CAGED STEEL „Fight Team‟
Zipped Hoodie
Super heavy weight hoodie.
Fitted at the waist, fine cotton
weave and a brushed finish
makes this hoodie feel really
soft and nice to wear.
Interview – CAGED STEEL
Established since 2007, this West Yorkshire based label
set out to take MMA fight wear in a refreshing new
direction.
Caged Steel is fast becoming known for its intense
attention to detail. From the latest printing techniques,
remarkable embroidery and its innovative designs.
Recently breaking into the USA and opening their own
warehouse. Caged Steel are setting out to give the
Yankee brands a run for their money!
We caught up with Caged Steel Founder Jamie
Thwaites for a quick chat…
Kelina “How did Caged Steel come about, who's
involved and what are your backgrounds?”
Jamie “I started Caged Steel fight gear in 2007. Back
£39.99
Caged Steel „Marine‟
Fight Shorts
These shorts are made out of
brand new lightweight fabric,
which make them light but strong.

inside leg, and a 6 inch split down
the outside leg. Embroidered
logos and personalised buckle and
draw-string.
then there wasn‟t many other brands, and what little
there was around was poor. It seemed to be an ideal
business to go in to, as I had been doing „Vale Tudo‟
when I was at University. The market was growing
and it was a sport I loved!”
CAGED STEEL „Destroy‟
T-Shirt
Kelina “What are your designs inspired by?”
100% brushed cotton. Like
all our products, custom
made to give you the best
quality and feel.
Jamie “Inspiration? I try to keep the designs smart
and simple. Everyone was jumping on the „Affliction‟
bandwagon with skulls etc, I wanted to stay with a
smart, catchy and robust product.”
Kelina “So what makes Caged Steel a quality
brand?”
Jamie “We work with our suppliers very closely to use
all the latest developments in materials etc. For
example the shorts are made out of a new twin weave
material that is very strong, but very soft against the
skin. Our Sharkskin rash vests are made from a duobreathe material that lets air in at the SAME time as
letting moisture out! A brand new material.”
Kelina “What are Caged Steel‟s greatest
achievements to date?”
Jamie “In 3 years we have become the largest
European MMA brand. Sponsoring fighters such as
Ross Pearson and Jim Wallhead, as well as many of
the top MMA events around the country.”

tell us all...
Kelina “Hi Pete, so how did Big Dogz start?
Pete “Big Dogz Fightwear came to fruition after reading
an interesting magazine article about a well known
American MMA clothing line. A seed was planted, ideas
began to hatch and pen was put to paper. Eventually Big
Dogz Fightwear was born in May of 2009. We wanted to
bring to the table, something that would stand out from
every other design which seemed to be based around

from?”
Pete “My good friends nicknamed me "Big Dog", so I
used this name to represent our firm.”
Kelina “What are your designs inspired by?”
Pete “The Old Skool New York Rap scene. Growing up,
we listened to groups like the Beastie Boys, Pete Rock
and CL Smooth, Biz Markie and more recent groups such
as Wu Tang Clan and the Roots. This music has played a
big part in our lives and continues to do so today. Throw

Fight Shorts
Kelina “How does All Valley fit into the MMA
clothing market?”
Made from polyester
Microfibre with a lycra crotch
inset. As worn by Paulo
Thiago during his UFC
victory over Josh Koschek.
Chris “The high cost of buying equipment can deter
people from taking up a martial art. The AV brand is built
on offering an affordable, high quality altenative to the
more expensive premium brands such as Tapout. Styled by
the street, tested in the cage is how we do things.”
Kelina “What makes All Valley a quality brand?”
£20.99
Chris “The fabric compositions of AV shorts mean they are
strong and allow freedom of movement. The graphics are
designed to capture the essence of the committed fighter”
Kelina “Where did the name All Valley come from?”
Chris “Simple, Daniel Larusso won the „All Valley Karate
Championship‟s in the movie „Karate Kid‟. Not a trained
killer by anyone‟s standards but he inspired a generation
who took the attitude - If he can do it, why can't I?”
ALL VALLEY Black

Kelina “Tell us about your new range”
Jamie “The new 'L' logo range was designed by an
Australian company with an impressive portfolio. The
idea behind it was to have a UK MMA brand that
didn't announce to the world that you were a 'cage
fighter'. This is a subtle range that can be worn
outside of the gym with only those 'in the know'
understanding what the logo represents.”
SOME OF LIKE 2 FIGHTS RANGE…

represented at that time and decided to create a brand that
was true to what I felt UK MMA stood for.”
Made from fine quality Nylon
Taslon and Micro fibre. Lycra
is in between the legs. A
strong, durable pair of shorts
that are built to last!
£29.99

treatment so we ensure that they are of the absolute highest
quality and built to last.”

and filled with latices foam
Kelina “What are Like 2 Fight‟s most memorable
achievements to date?”

notably has been Jim Wallhead in his successful bout at
'Knuckle Up at The Manor'. Others include Paul Sass, Mark
Glover, Danny Withington, Chris Thompson, Chris
Whitehouse, Dave Faulkner, Jason Young, James McGuiness,
Richie Ryder, Chris Garry...the list really does go on!

Kelina “What are your designs inspired by?”
Carl “Most of the designs so far have been based on
the Demon logo which we had designed by one of our
graphic designers. We are currently working on a lot of
new styles. There‟s Japanese and Tattoo styles on the
way soon. And we‟ve recently employed a fashion
graduate to help us branch out more into the fashion
side”.
Interview – DEMON FIGHTWEAR
Demon Fightwear is the latest UK MMA label on
the block. This South Shields based brand, run by
Carl Rannigan, Terry Mcdougal and Phil Dolphin,
already have an impressive selection of fightwear
to make your mates jealous! We caught up with
Carl Rannigan to tell us more…
Kelina “Tell us about yourselves. What are your
backgrounds?”
Carl “Myself and Phil both work offshore on oil rigs
throughout the north sea, me as a scaffolding inspector
and Phil as an electrician. Terry works part time as civil
engineer and also as a personal trainer. While running
Demon Fightwear together in our spare time. Both myself
and Terry have been involved in MMA for over ten years
as both fans and competitors. Both of us have competed
in MMA in the past, me at an amateur level and Terry at
pro level with a perfect record of ten wins and no losses.
We don‟t compete anymore, due to work commitments,
but still like to train in MMA. Phil has not competed in
MMA but has been an avid fan for a number of years and
has trained in kung fu in the past”.
Kelina “What Are Demon Fightwear‟s greatest
achievements to date?”
Carl “To date we are the official sponsors of 2
northeast based events Total combat and the NFL
(Northern Fight League). We also have what we like to
call „Team Demon‟ which is made up of our sponsored
fighters Anth „The Terrier‟ Grecian Total combat
lightweight title holder, Gareth Jackson and O „Ice Box‟
Okunu are to name a few. All are up and coming local
fighters”.
Kelina “What does Demon have in store for
2010?”
Carl “We have already started on a women‟s range
with some new designs for t-shirts and hoodies. We
are also working on our new men‟s range of t-shirts,
shorts and hoodies. We‟re also working with a
consultant to develop 2 new and unique style of gloves

Christmas”.
SOME OF DEMON’S RANGE…
Demon Ground & Pound
T-Shirt
Kelina “How did Demon come about?”
Carl “Initially the idea was to open an online MMA and
Supplement store, then Terry came up with the idea to
manufacture our own MMA equipment. We had a lot of
different idea‟s for the naming of the brand but were still
undecided when one of our wives came up with the name
Demon. We all thought it had a ring to it and that is how
Demon Fightwear came about”.
Kelina “What makes Demon a quality brand?”
Carl “All of our products are made from the highest
quality material. We have a range of materials we use for
our shorts such as Teflon, Micro fiber and a heavy duty
stretch fabric. The shorts all come with a triple stitch for
extra durability. Our T-shirts are constructed using
215gsm 100% pure ring-spun cotton this t-shirt is a
fabulous choice. We use a range of different styles of
printing such as Screen print, Foil print, Transfer print and
are looking into other styles of print for future designs.”

Interview – RANDORI FIGHTWEAR
Randori Fightwear, based in Wolverhampton, is a
family run company with over three generations of
experience in combat sports and Martial Arts. We
caught up with Randori Fightwear owner Keenan
Pedley to find out more…
Kelina “How did Randori come about, who's
involved and what are your backgrounds?”
Keenan “Randori Fightwear came about from me and my
father's passion for Martial Arts. We wanted to produce a
quallity brand that meant something to REAL Martial
Artists. A subtle brand that could be worn casually that
was in-obtrusive. I have been involved in Martial Arts
since I was six years old. My Grandfather was a boxer
and prize fighter so I guess you could say combat sports
run in the blood. I started my training in traditional
Karate but the last few years have seen me move with
the times. I started to train in MMA and NO-GI
submission whilst still keeping my Karate training up.”
Kelina “Where does the name 'Randori' come
from?”
Keenan “Randori, a Japanese term that literally means
"chaos taking" or "grasping freedom" has many
interpretations within Martial Arts depending upon the
discipline practiced. When in combat, to "take the chaos"
thrown at you and to perform to the best of your ability
shows true warrior spirit.”
Fightwear brand which has gained Grappling Arts
Association of Great Britain approval for our 4oz
grappling gloves, our rash guards and our technical fight
tops. Randori Fightwear has sponsored several local
fighters including Dan 'Danimal' Weiss (K1 and full
contact fighter) and Dan Burton (Muay Thai and full
contact kickboxer). We also sponsored an American
young up and coming fighter Will Chiado ( AMMY MMA
fighter). Randori Fightwear is the brand of choice for
such people as Sensei Iain Abernethy, Sensei Harry Cook
and Sensei Akira Sato 8th Dan Shito Ryu Karate.”
Kelina “Tell us about your new ranges”
Keenan “We have just launched our Randori softshell
jacket which has had great feedback and is being
featured in MMA Ultd Magazine in December. We have
also launched a range of women‟s gear including 4oz
gloves, 10oz bag gloves and a hoodie. These look
amazing!”
Kelina “What does Randori have planned for
2010?”
Keenan “We plan on bringing out a Japanese Kanji
range next year which will be heavily influenced by
designs from the far east. We are also looking at
bringing out some full leather focus pads and thai pads.
We also plan on adding to our existing women‟s range
with a new ladies technical fight top and some shorts.”
SOME OF RANDORI’S RANGE…
Randori Short Sleeve
Rash Guard
Kelina “What are your designs inspired by?”
Keenan “Our whole brand name encaptures everything
about us really! Randori Fightwear is recognised by its
Old English font used in our logo and its subtle and inobtrusive designs. We don't look like an MMA fashion
brand. Randori Fightwear can be worn on a night out
letting people know what you‟re into without being too 'in
your face' so to speak. Randori fightwear is a brand for
serious Martial Artists that know what it means. To
everybody else it‟s just a nice looking top!”
Kelina “What makes Randori a quality brand?”
