Bryce Mitchell is getting his camo shorts.
After every fight, Mitchell has been clamoring for Reebok to make him camo shorts and was open about the fact he will keep bringing it up until it happens.
“Reebok, y’all are gonna have to kill me or make some camo shorts ‘cause I ain’t shuttin’ up until then,” Mitchel said after his win over Matt Sayles.
Well, according to UFC president, Dana White, Reebok ended up making camp shorts and Bryce Mitchell will be wearing them for his UFC Vegas 12 fight against Andre Fili.

It is cool to see Reebok oblige on making the camo shorts as ever since Reebok took over the outfitting, fight fans have complained about the lack of creativity they have and fighters all looking the same. But, in the co-main event on Saturday, that will all change as Mitchell is getting his camo shorts.
Bryce Mitchell is 13-0 as a pro including being 4-0 inside the Octagon. The Arkansas native dominated Charles Rosa last time out at UFC 249 and nearly pulled off another twister submission win. In the fight before, Mitchell did land the twister against Matt Sayles which is when he really started to put the camo short talk on the front burner. In his career, Mitchell also holds wins over Bobby Moffett and Tyler Diamond in the UFC.
Andre Fili, meanwhile, returned to the win column in June with a decision win over Charles Jourdain. Before that, he dropped a decision loss to Sodiq Yusuff earlier this year. The Team Alpha Male product holds notable wins over Myles Jury, Artem Lobov, and Dennis Bermudez.
“Touchy” will likely be Mitchell’s toughest test of his career and is looking to spoil the debut of the camo shorts. No matter what, Mitchell is at least getting his camo shorts on Saturday night at UFC Vegas 12.
