Ahead of UFC 257 headlined by Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier II, StreetX has teamed up with UFC Light Heavyweight fighter Khalil Rountree Jr. on a commemorative capsule. Rountree is set to face Marcin Prachnio in the main card of the upcoming massive event in the start of his push to break into the UFC’s Light Heavyweight Top 10.

Marking Rountree’s return to the Octagon after a brief hiatus and signing a contract extension with the UFC last year, the range once again serves to show the Perth streetwear imprint’s love of combat sports.

The special range draws upon graphical reference from both parties with items fit for wear year-round in Australia and Khalil Rountree Jr.’s current home base in Thailand. Portraying the fighter’s early “The War Horse” moniker, items display elements of muay thai and metal references drawn from the early days of the UFC. The collaborative capsule is comprised of a logo emblazoned hoodie, graphic T-shirt and bold nylon sport shorts.

The Khalil Rountree capsule is available now on StreetX’s website ahead of UFC 257 taking place January 24.

In case you missed it, Israel Adesanya is set to challenge Light Heavyweight Champion Jan Błachowicz at UFC 259.
