UFC World Champion Cris Cybrog Wears Bournemouth Clothing Brand Combat Dollies
By: Combat Dollies
Combat Dollies is a women's gym and fitness clothing brand and was started by Bournemouth mum Gemma Ruegg.
Gemma started Combat Dollies when she first began training in boxing and martial arts and found a lack of women's clothing that catered for serious physical training.
"I was fed up with always having to wear men's clothes when training as this was all I could find in the MMA (mixed martial arts) section.
I wanted to look and feel good when training but still feel feminine.
So I designed a few pairs of leggings for myself and had them made.
When I wore them to the gym next time the ladies I trained with liked them, so they bought some and before I knew it I was selling them to other gyms.
And that's how Combat Dollies started."
The story of how Cris Cyborg - the most famous female fighter in the world, came to be wearing Combat Dollies is almost as fortuitous as the start of the company.
"Cris Cyborg messaged me on social media one day and said she liked our clothing and asked if we could send her some. She is the best fighter in the world and a huge inspiration, so of course - I absolutely said yes! Then I saw that Cris Cyborg had posted pictures and videos of herself wearing our Combat Dollies leggings. It really is amazing."
Cris Cyborg has been pictured on her social media account wearing Combat Dollies - Blue Camo Leggings.
