What a crazy day for MMA.
I hadn't heard it.
They announced it at their press conference today.
Kimbo's getting his own malt liquor drink!!?!??!?!
Wait, that was their special announcement? Who was the special guest then?
I can't find who the special guest was....it may just have been the PR rep from Anheuser Busch.
WEC is also getting the Bud Light sponsorship.
Thats cool, needed some big name sponsors.
man, all this talk is making me thirsty.......for a yeling.
They will make the money right back with Evan Tanner back in the game.
In for Okami bud light shorts.
This does nothing for us fans.
so what does this mean? Why such a big deal? Bud Lights gets to advertise their stuff on UFC shows? UFC gets more money? What does it do for us?
You get to watch bud light instant replays instead of mickey's replays
more revenue, better production, better pay, etc...
Once 1 large corporate sponsor jumps on others will follow and eventually get into bidding wars.
This will also make the UFC more attractive to ABC/NBC/HBO etc.
It's a business baby, and business is booming!
HUGE day for MMA. CBS deal finalized and now the UFC gets their first huge sponsor. IDK about you guys, but I'll definitely be drinking some bood light Saturday.
i would never drink that shit
more exposure for the ufc. fighters may get tossed into the ads and bringing more people and money into the sport. more fairweather superficial fans, but bigger fighter paychecks.
yeah, stick to Rickards
I guarantee they don't change their production.
Youre right, and thats pretty sad. The UFC needs a overhaul IMO. Production is horrible.
And so it begins
