The sponsorship will introduce the authentic experience and taste of Tequila CAZADORES to UFC adult fans around the world.
"We are proud to be the Official Spirit Sponsor of UFC," said Ariel Meyer, Vice President and Brand Managing Director, Tequila CAZADORES. "UFC organization has helped create mixed martial arts into a responsible, safe sport, with strict rules and regulations for athlete protection and fair play. Today, UFC is an increasingly popular event that reaches legal drinking-age consumers in an engaging environment for adult audiences. For these reasons we are excited about this partnership along with the opportunity to showcase Tequila CAZADORES as the "Spirit of Champions."
This sponsorship brings two complementary brands together creating a winning combination. As the Official Spirit Sponsor, Tequila CAZADORES will be featured nationally through Pay-Per-View broadcasts, digital and print media content as well as venue signage throughout the year. In addition, Tequila CAZADORES will host special adult consumer tastings, events, and promotions to support the Sponsorship.
Handcrafted in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico, the premier agave growing region, Tequila CAZADORES is an authentic 100% agave tequila deeply rooted in heritage. This makes it the best way to salute the authentic spirit of the UFC contenders.
