14 Sep, 2020
MANSCAPED™, the leading male below-the-waist grooming and hygiene brand, and UFC®, the world's premier mixed martial arts (MMA) organization, continue their exclusive partnership on UFC FIGHT ISLAND™. As the Official Electric Trimmer of UFC, MANSCAPED will have a highly visible presence in the Octagon as UFC FIGHT ISLAND continues to capture the attention of the sports world.
"We've been excited about UFC FIGHT ISLAND since Dana White mentioned it back in April," said Joey Kovac, Senior Director of Marketing at MANSCAPED. "We knew MANSCAPED had to be a part of it when we saw how stacked this card was."
This will be the first international card for this partnership as UFC moves to Yas Island in Abu Dhabi. Starting this weekend, UFC will hold its first in a series of events on UFC FIGHT ISLAND, with UFC® 251: USMAN vs. MASVIDAL. The exciting card is headlined by a trio of world championship bouts, including current welterweight champion Kamaru Usman vs. No. 3 ranked Jorge Masvidal, featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski vs. No. 1 contender Max Holloway, and No. 3 ranked contender Petr Yan vs. No. 6 ranked Jose Aldo for the vacant bantamweight title.
Placement of the MANSCAPED logo will include peripheral canvas positioning as well as in-broadcast mentions. MANSCAPED will serve as the presenting sponsor for UFC's Official Decision, Rules of the Octagon, and live read event announcement by Bruce Buffer.
MANSCAPED will be integrated into select UFC pay-per-views and Fight Nights for the remainder of 2020 and continuing through 2021. In addition to this sponsorship, MANSCAPED has recruited several top UFC athletes as brand ambassadors, including No. 1 ranked light heavyweight contender Dominick Reyes, former featherweight champion Max Holloway, and No. 2 ranked heavyweight contender Francis Ngannou.
