Mixed martial arts goliath UFC has announced a new, multi-year global marketing partnership with Howler Head Whiskey, one of the fastest-growing flavoured whiskey brands in North America.
Howler Head becomes UFC’s first-ever ‘Flavored Whiskey Partner’, creating a new sponsorship category for the combat sports company. In return, Howler Head gets a branded presence at all UFC events, along with in-venue and onsite fan activations at select Pay-Per-View and Fight Night events, beginning with UFC 261: Usman vs Masvidal 2, which takes place at VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida April 24.

Howler Head is a badass brand. Since its launch, it has become one of the best-selling whiskey brands in the United States and it aligns perfectly with our fan base.”
