UFC 2009 Undisputed Sponsor List

Posted March 31st, 2009 at 7:56 am


MMAPayout has an interesting piece up revealing the list of approved sponsors in UFC 2009 Undisputed. In total there are 17 camps and 33 commercial sponsors. What is unique about this arrangement is that the fighters have been allowed to sell the placements on their in-game gear. They can negotiate with the sponsors as individuals and reap the benefits.

Certainly the level of exposure through the video game is equal to that, or possibly even superior to, the level of exposure companies receive from fighters at live UFC events; and in this case, fighters on the main card (again depending on their popularity) are receiving at least $20k per placement.

It appears there will be no alcohol or gambling sponsors which isn’t a surprise considering they will be attempting to appeal to a wide-ranging consumer base. UFC continues to impress with the depth it is offering. Click here to read the full article and see the entire list of sponsors.
