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.
“I fell in love with Howler Head during the pandemic and it is by far the best whiskey I’ve ever had,” says UFC President Dana White. “So, you can imagine how excited I am that these guys are coming on board as an official partner. 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.”
