I had this for more than a month now and happy with the purchase. I use it more for a blocking pad for my daughter. I dont knwo if it would withstand a ufc fighter but nothing would. . It has a good amount of padding and doesn't hurt to kick. I wish the straps were a bit more durable and the weak point looks like the attachment to the pad. For a young athlete it shoudl be fine but for a big heavy professional fighter it wouldnt last a week.
