COLUMBUS, Ohio – On Thursday afternoon, UFC president Dana White along with Tony Ponture, vice president, global media and sports marketing for Anheuser-Busch, announced a new three-year deal between the fight promotion and Bud Light, making it the major sponsor for the organization going forward.

White expressed his excitement about the new deal with Bud Light.

“Not only did we get and land a blue chip sponsor, we landed the biggest. The biggest sponsor in sports, period,” he stated. “Not only are these guys the biggest and the best at what they do in their industry, but they’re the biggest and the best marketers in the world. We’re not talking the United States. We’re talking the world. When I say these guys are No. 1, No. 2 is far behind them.”

Budweiser sponsoring the ufc.. fox looking to buy out the fertittas? What does this say? this says that ufc fighters might get start getting paid and treated like proathletes, that 44.95 ufc ppvs are a thing of the past.. and that dana white will have some serious big wigs to answer to, meaning he might have to tone things down a little more and be a little more of a president of a legitimate sport as opposed to a boxing promoter.

That was the best "BIG UFC ANNOUNCEMENT" ever, by far, i was thinking it would just be a signing like Fedor or Gomi or maybe that old guy Randy something coming back but was shocked and very very happy to hear of such great news, this makes a big difference to my UFC viewing experience

I actually think this sponsorship deal managed to outshine the Elite TV deal. So well done Dana. You come back strong. WAR Dana!
