We went toe to toe with URCC and came out with a collab!
Whether you're a straight-up Mixed Martial Arts guy or just into insane bloody beat downs, you know URCC is holdin' it down here in the Philippines. Universal Reality Combat Championship or URCC is nearing it's 10th year and behind it all are the founders and organizers, Irwin Tieng, Franz von Muhlfeld, Jed Dario and Alvin Aguilar.

Coming-up thru High School and College, we watched our share of UFC, K1, Pride and of course URCC. However, with the exception of Verns(WIP USA) who trained in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, we at WIP aren't real MMA heads. But even so, we all knew about the Bad Ass Mother F'er called Alvin Aguilar. Back then it was just something kids in Manila knew about. There were legendary tales going around and I was quite surprised to read about some of it being referenced on Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alvin_Aguilar
All that aside and in the past, Alvin Aguilar is now known all over for his numerous achievements in the MMA scene and most notably, as the father of Philippine MMA by creating URCC. Talk about taking your passion to newer and greater heights.

Earlier this year, we were approached by URCC to help expand their brand merchandise and so WIP came thru with a easy to wear stretch-fit baseball cap. On the bottom of the visor is the famous URCC tag line "BAKBAKAN NA!" or simply translated to Let's Fight!.
The URCC stretch-fit caps come in 2 sizes S/M and L/XL and are now available at K-1 Extreme Sportshop (14 Gilmore, Corner Santolan Road, Quezon City. tel 7264681).
Follow URCC on Facebook and inquire about the caps while stocks last.
In the meantime, be sure to make it to Colt 45 URCC University Challenge 2011 coming this September 9. 1 Esplanade, Pasay City. For tickets: 381.0940 or 891.9999. For info: www.urccmma.com.

The Souljah reversible knit cap comes in 2 designs, Rastaman Souljah and Jamaican Souljah with several colorways. Initially it will be available on August 21 at the Rebel Lion store(open every Sunday at IRIE SUNDAY) and at our online store starting August 22. It will eventually work its way to our retail partners. More info on that to follow. Will retail for only Php800. For now, make sure to check this video to see how it looks reversed.
Now that you know when and how to get it, we can move on to the beez neez.
At last month's IRIE SUNDAY: Dancehall Night featuring Shortkut, WIP Caps held a little Dance contest for the ladies. And so we gave out a bunch of Souljah caps to the fine ladies that did their thing(to sum it all-up) and got the crowd wilin out. Go ahead and check out the official photos from that event right here.
Heres the video. Things got a little out of hand as we didn't prepare for crowd control :0
Anyway, since people were clamoring for more and more, we're doing it all over again this Sunday, August 21, 2011.
If you're a hottie gyal who thinks you got the stuff to throw down with 5 other girls then come down and you might just win some sick prizes from WIP Caps and the Rebel Lion store run by Papadom. Click here for the event details.
The Souljah knit caps will also be available for sale at the Rebel Lion store in limited quantities. Be the first to get one!

The secret's out, We made Victoria Court fitteds! That's whatsup!
Philippines' number 1 boutique motel tapped us to make these unique premium fitted caps. They go for P1,200 and you can pick them up at Bunker, located at the Ronac Center and at both P&P Tatoo locations.
Follow Victoria Court on Facebook.
On a serious note, it would mean a great deal to us if you could drop by Victoria Court HIV Awareness Organization and join the campaign to fight HIV and AIDS.
