MMA Fighter Refuses to Wear a Cubs hat at Wrigley because he's a Mets fan

MMA fighter Chris Wade, from Islip, LI, showed loyalty to the Orange and Blue in a big way at Wrigley Field. 

From Newsday: 

“Before throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at Wrigley Field on Wednesday afternoon, Islip’s Chris Wade declined to wear the Cubs hat he was given, electing to don a cap made by Island Strong, a Long Island-based apparel brand he co-founded.

There were two factors behind the mixed martial artist’s decision.

First: the die-hard Mets fan wasn’t planning on rocking another team’s regalia, regardless of occasion.”

Now that’s a REAL fan. Too often you see public figures donning caps of teams from the city they’re currently in for PR purposes. Do a google images search of a random celebrity at sporting events and feast your eyes on the amount of different team gear they can be spotted wearing. It’s just the nature of that world, I guess.

Not for Chris Wade. He’s true to his roots. 

I’m not the biggest MMA/UFC guy, but now I’m all in on any fight Wade has. He'll be squaring up tonight, in his PFL debut, live on Facebook at 6pm CT. Tune in HERE. 

United we cheer for you, Chris Wade. Bring that W back to Long Island!
