Junior Albini’s diaper-looking Reebok shorts at UFC-Norfolk were impossible to ignore

If the Reebok fight kits were intended to usher in an era of across-the-board professionalism in the UFC, doing away with the days of the occasionally embarrassing attire choice, let’s just say that the powers that be didn’t see Junior Albini coming.

The 26-year-old Brazilian came up short against Andrei Arlovski at UFC Fight Night 120 in Norfolk, Va., but he also drew all the wrong kind of attention for the look he brought into the octagon.

It wasn’t just people on Twitter who noticed the hilarity of a fighter who goes by the nickname “Baby” showing up in a pair of fight trunks that resembled an adult diaper. Even UFC commentator and fighter Paul Felder could not keep himself from remarking on the look, as Albini turned in a lackluster performance en route to a unanimous-decision loss.

It’s safe to say that it’s not exactly the look Reebok was hoping for. And for UFC executives who once expressed hope that the outfitting deal would take the sport to a new level, this wasn’t exactly a high point. Though, you can’t say it wasn’t memorable.
