The Revgear Travel Locker XL (also known as “The Beast”) is a top pick for MMA fighters this Christmas.

As an MMA fighter, I know the hassle of multiple bags. This backpack changes that. It’s big yet not bulky, measuring 20″ by 22″ by 16″. It fits everything: gloves, shin guards, gi’s, water bottles, and clothes.

Its standout feature is versatility. It has compartments for laptops and gadgets, great for gym-to-work transitions. The separate, secure laptop section adds convenience and security.

The comfortable design includes padded straps with hooks and a padded back. This makes it comfortable and practical for daily use.

It’s an all-in-one solution for fighters who need a practical solution for regular training.

Top-performing T3 boxing gloves, hand wraps and a glove deodorizer to complete the set!

Buy on Hayabusa

I’m always on the lookout for great training kits for fighters. This year, the Hayabusa T3 Boxing Gloves Training Kit stands out.

It’s an ideal present for any MMA fighter needing a new training kit for the New Year ahead.

The kit includes the brilliant T3 Boxing Gloves, Perfect Stretch Hand Wraps, and a Boxing Glove Deodorizer.

What impresses me most is the Dual-X wrist straps of the gloves. They offer a snug fit and excellent wrist support, crucial for fighters.

The multi-layered foam provides unmatched knuckle protection as well, essential in a sport as intense as MMA.

To complete the glove kit, you’re getting 180-inch hand wraps made of a breathable cotton/nylon blend and a glove deodorizer to help your gloves stay bacteria and smell-free.

The 10% discount when bundled makes this kit a good choice. It’s a thoughtful, practical gift that any MMA fighter would appreciate this year!

Grappling Dummy

The Hawk Sports Clown Grappling Dummy is a versatile training tool, ideal for those in combat sports.

Its moveable limbs make for a realistic training experience in MMA, Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, Karate, and Wrestling. You can practice strikes, throws, and grapples, which is great for honing skills.

Customizable in weight, it can be filled up to 80 lbs., adapting to different training needs. The durable canvas covering and heavy-duty stitching ensure longevity. Its clown design may not appeal to everyone, and the arms could be a bit longer.

I found the dummy to be sturdy and useful for practicing at home. It withstands rigorous use, a big plus for intense training sessions.

While its effectiveness in actual sparring scenarios is limited, it’s a great tool for drilling techniques. Perfect for beginners and experienced fighters, it’s a worthy investment for enhancing combat skills.

The Hawk Sports Dummy is not just a training aid but also a fun addition to any fighter’s gear collection. Whether for serious training or playful sparring, it serves its purpose well.

A world's first: the 3D-printed boxing glove that makes every heavy punch feel like air.

For a Christmas gift that will impress any MMA fighter, the Hayabusa T3D boxing gloves are an excellent choice.

Their standout feature, the 3D-printed lattice cushioning, offers unmatched impact absorption. This cutting-edge technology makes them perfect for intense training while minimizing the risk of hand and wrist injuries.

Hayabusa T3D boxing gloves

Crafted from durable Vylar-engineered leather, these gloves promise longevity, even through rigorous sessions.

Their ergonomic design and Dual-X wrist straps ensure a snug, comfortable fit, especially accommodating for fighters with smaller hands.

While their initial stiffness requires a break-in period, and the unique design may not be ideal for sparring, these minor drawbacks are outweighed by the gloves’ overall quality and performance.

These boxing gloves are a premium and thoughtful gift for the MMA fighter in your life, offering a blend of innovative technology, comfort, and safety. This Christmas, they’re sure to be a hit for any dedicated martial artist.

Pro Series MS1 MMA Gloves

Revgear Pro Series MS1 MMA Gloves

Incredibly diverse MMA glove that will protect your knuckles while transitioning between stand-up and ground fighting.

Buy on Amazon Buy on Revgear

After using the Revgear Pro Series MS1 MMA gloves, I feel they are a solid choice for MMA fighters.

I can easily transition from grappling to standup training without changing gloves, which is very convenient.

The contoured finger loops make forming a fist quite easy, though they can be a little cumbersome to get on and off since they’re a tight fit.

The gloves are made from 100% Softech leather and the pre-curved shape gives a comfortable, broken-in feel right out of the box.

The multi-layered ‘RAM Force’ padding offers great protection for my sparring partners, despite the thickness.

I recommend these gloves for their reasonable price and quality. They’ve proven durable in my mixed Muay Thai and grappling sparring.

The flexibility, comfort, and solid wrist support make them an excellent Christmas gift for any MMA fighter.

Athletes Ice Bath Tub

After using the XL Cold Pod Ice Bath Tub, I can confidently say it’s a game-changer for MMA fighters and athletes.

Its 116-gallon capacity and easy installation make it a great choice for fighters of all sizes, with an upright sitting position that can accommodate individuals over 6 feet tall.

Lightweight and portable, it’s ideal for daily cold therapy which has unique benefits for rapid muscle recovery and reduces soreness.

It isn’t an insulated tub, though, which means it will require regular additional ice added to it if you want to get to those sub-zero temperatures.

Aside from that, there are many health benefits I’ve experienced from a cold plunge like reduced swelling, pain relief, insomnia relief, and more, making this a solid option for an active fighter who would appreciate more recovery tools.

WHOOP 4.0

WHOOP 4.0

Yet to find a better fitness tracker for health, fitness, and sleep data all in one, than the WHOOP 4.0.

Buy on WHOOP Read our review

The WHOOP 4.0 stands out as an excellent gift for martial artists.

It’s stylish and comfortable, blending in with various settings. For martial arts, the WHOOP 4.0‘s slim design is generally excellent, but it will be uncomfortable under gloves or Gi’s.

The ANY-WEAR apparel range is a smart add-on for flexible device placement during training by placing it on your waist or body.

Whoop 4.0 band on wrist

The app offers detailed health data, useful for tracking recovery and sleep, and is data-rich, though it can be overwhelming at times. The WHOOP’s sleep tracking is impressively accurate, providing valuable insights after a week’s use.

WHOOP’s strength lies in its adaptability for martial arts, thanks to the ANY-WEAR apparel. While it requires a subscription and additional apparel purchases, its effectiveness makes it a worthwhile gift for any serious martial artist.

Fusion Rash Guard

Hayabusa Fusion Jiu-Jitsu Rashguard

Four-way stretch and silicone waistband make it great for heavy grappling sparring, and the color-changing fabric looks incredible.

Buy on Amazon Read our review

After using the Hayabusa Fusion Rash Guard, we think it’s a top pick for MMA fighters this Christmas.

Its color-changing effect during movement is not only cool but adds to that premium feeling of the 4-way stretch fabric.

Wearing the Hayabusa fusion rash guard

We appreciate the silicone waistband, which keeps the rash guard in place during intense grappling sessions.

While wearing it, its snug fit conforms perfectly to the body without any restrictive feeling. The long sleeves can be a bit limiting in terms of traction during training, but it’s still top-notch.

In my opinion, its durability and comfort make it an excellent choice for both Jiu-Jitsu and wrestling fighters.

Handheld Back Massager

After using the Zyllion Handheld Back and Neck Massager, I think it’s a top choice for MMA fighters looking for deep tissue massage at home.

Its powerful 5,000 RPM percussion motor really gets deep into muscle tissue, providing instant relief from cramps and knots. This is crucial for recovery and muscle pain relief.

The ergonomic design makes it easy to reach tough spots like the upper or lower back. There’s a long-lasting 2200-mmAh battery included, too.

I tried the soft silicone heads and ball attachment with heat. The heat function is great for improving blood circulation to the knotted areas.

At times it can feel a bit too heavy to use when trying to get to those neck and shoulder points and lifting your arm constantly, but if your loved one is an experienced boxer then they’re probably all to familiar with keeping their hands up for long periods!

It’s a great massager for a fighter, still, as it’s robust for many uses and really adds to that at-home TLC recovery.

Impact Custom Mouthguard

Impact Custom Pro Mouthguard

A perfectly molded mouthguard for your fighter's face. No more missing teeth from sparring. Market leader providing mouthguards to pro athletes in combat sports, an ideal tool for fighting safely.

Buy on Impact Read our review

After using the Impact Custom Pro Mouthguard, I believe it’s a top choice for MMA fighters seeking a custom mouthguard.

Its snug fit provides excellent protection, essential for heavy contact sports like MMA, BJJ, and Muay Thai.

The process of creating a mold with the provided kit is straightforward. Once you send it back, Impact keeps your mold on file for easy replacements, too.

The variety of customization options, from colors to logos, adds a personal touch that adds to the possibilities as a gift option.

It’s more expensive than standard boil-and-bite mouthguards, but for good reason; to protect a fighter’s teeth and jaw.

In my opinion, the Impact Custom Pro Mouthguard stands out for its professional quality at an affordable price and an affordable alternative to the eye-watering prices from a dentist or orthodontist.

Boxing Fundamentals Course

After using Luke Howard’s Boxing Fundamentals Course, I feel it’s a top-notch choice for beginners.

The course expertly balances video lessons and an eBook workbook, creating a complete training experience.

The workbook details complex boxing concepts in an easy-to-digest manner, complemented by video sessions for getting your workouts in with guidance.

The course covers everything from basic stances to advanced techniques. Including footwork, defense, weaving, and much more.

In my opinion, this course is an exceptional resource for anyone looking to dive into boxing. The structured programming and clear, engaging instruction make complex techniques digestible and would make an awesome gift.

Century Bob XL

Century BOB XL

Experience dynamic training with this life-like, adjustable-height opponent bag.

Buy On Amazon

The Century Bob XL stands out as an excellent Christmas gift for MMA fighters. Its freestanding design makes it more versatile than a heavy bag.

The realistic upper torso is perfect for practicing combinations and accuracy, with a durable construction and a large striking surface which is great for both boxing and kicks.

The adjustable height and easy mobility add to its appeal. For fighters focusing on strikes, the Bob XL is a valuable and effective training tool—a gift that will truly brighten their day.

Dustin Poirier’s Hot Sauce

Dustin Poirier's Louisiana Style Creole Maple Hot Sauce

Delicious hot sauce that suits the mid-heat tastes with a kick of sweet maple syrup.

Buy on Heartbeat Co Buy on Amazon

After trying Dustin Poirier’s Creole Maple Hot Sauce, I think it’s an excellent Christmas gift for MMA fighters and hot sauce enthusiasts alike.

This sauce strikes a perfect balance between sweet and spicy, delivering a mid-heat level that’s not too overwhelming.

It’s particularly great with meats that pair well with sweetness, like chicken or beef brisket.

While it has a noticeable sweetness, the heat level is still significant, making it a good choice for those who appreciate a bit of spice. My family also enjoyed it, quickly finishing off the bottle for me.

It’s a brilliant stocking filler extra and one of those special gifts for UFC fans.

Quick Gel Hand Wraps

Hayabusa Quick Gel Boxing Hand Wraps

Two pairs of easy slip-on hand wraps to make boxing training easier than ever.

Buy on Amazon Buy on Hayabusa

If your significant other is complaining about their handwraps selection, then the Quick Gel Hand Wraps Multi-Pack from Hayabusa might be what they need.

The ease of slipping on these wraps is a game-changer. They offer good protection with their gel/foam padding and more consistent wrist support inside their boxing glove.

What’s great is the pack includes two pairs in choice colors to add a personal touch and a wash bag for storing them once they’re sweaty.

Another welcome addition to the stocking fillers under the Christmas tree this year!
