In the ad, Thomspon and Dillashaw can be seen wearing formal office clothes working across each other when Dillashaw is irritated by the noise made by Thompson. This led to a full-blown brawl as both fighters start swinging. They both manage to land good shots displaying the flexibility of Van Heusen’s clothes before the fight ends with Dillashaw slamming Thompson on a table.

It should be noted that the partnership begins with UFC 227, a PPV which is being headlined by Dillashaw. However, the CMO of PVH Heritage Marketing (parent company of Van Heusen) was quick to claim that Dillashaw starring in the ad and the partnership beginning from his PPV was a mere co-incidence and wasn’t planned. Here’s what he told Adweek:

We didn’t plan it this way but T.J. will be in a title fight for a pay per view event, as part of the sponsorship with UFC, we wanted to be in the space, we wanted to be endemic and inside the space.
