The UFC 200 press conference took place today at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV.  The Ultimate Fighter Season 23 coaches, Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Claudia Gadelha, will go toe to toe in July where Gadelha will attempt to dethrone Jedrzejczyk from holding the title for women’s straw weight division.

But it wasn’t the press conference nor the stare down that caught our attention.  Did you happen to check out the kicks that Jedrzejczyk was wearing?!?!?!?!  All sci-fi geeks should recognize them as they are, yes, the Reebok Alien Stompers that Sigourney Weaver‘s Ellen Ripley was wearing in the 1986 hit Aliens.  

Looks like someone got the Alien Stompers a little early as 4/26 is “Alien Day” to pay homage to LV-426 (if I need to explain it, don’t read on any further lol).

From the official Alien Day press release:

Fox Consumer Products has teamed with an impressive portfolio of licensing partners; showcasing everything from unique apparel to exclusive comic books to high-end collectables. One of the most-requested licensed products, the Reebok Alien Stomper worn by Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley, as well as the mid tops worn by Lance Henrikson as the Android Bishop, are being released by Reebok in limited edition to mark ALIEN DAY. The iconic movie sneakers will be available beginning April 26th at Reebok.com and select Reebok stores worldwide.

Wouldn’t it be great to see the champ walk in wearing the Alien Stompers at UFC 200?!?!  Check out the pics below from todays press conference and some shots of the Reebok Alien Stompers.
