Description

UFC 14: Showdown was a MMA event held by the UFC on July 27, 1997 in Birmingham, Alabama. It featured two separate tournaments: a heavyweight tournament for fighters 200 lb or more, and a middleweight (formerly lightweight) tournament for fighters under 200 lb. The event also featured a Heavyweight Championship “Superfight” between Mark Coleman and Maurice Smith, as well as two alternate bouts in case of tournament injury.

Showdown was the first UFC event to require all fighters to wear padded gloves, weighing between four and six ounces. Up until then, it was the fighter’s option. (Melton Bowen was the first UFC fighter to choose to wear UFC glove, back in UFC 4.) It was also the first appearance of World champion kickboxer Maurice Smith and champion collegiate wrestler Mark Kerr, who was encouraged to try MMA competition by his friend and training partner, Mark Coleman.

This black shirt was a back up for referee Big John McCarthy for UFC 14. It come’s directly from Big John’s private collection. The verso  has a custom design from Body Alive. The front chest features the event details along with a cool patch for UFC Alliance – ULTIMATE FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP and Body Alive logo- in white.  For authentication it was autographed on the front in silver paint pen by McCarthy.
