LAS VEGAS, NV
Monday, September 17th, 2018

UFC®, the world’s premier mixed martial arts organization, today announced a new marketing partnership with Oscar Mayer®. The partnership names P3 Portable Protein Packs as the “Official Protein Snack” of UFC, creating a new, exclusive sponsorship category for the MMA promotion.

P3 Portable Protein Packs are the “Official Protein Snack” of UFC

P3 Portable Protein Snacks deliver a tasty combination of meat, cheese, nuts, and fruits, all in one portable pack. They come in multiple varieties and sizes, all offering a convenient way for consumers to get their protein. Oscar Mayer established the Adult Snacking segment with P3 in 2014, and since its launch, the P3 brand has successfully built awareness and has grown in popularity with consumers. They are widely distributed in retail grocery and convenience stores across the country. The UFC partnership will further expand awareness to a new and coveted loyal MMA fan base.

Under the terms of this partnership, P3 will have a branded presence inside the world-famous Octagon® at select UFC events for the remainder of the year. Additional partnership activations will include the integration of P3 branding throughout UFC’s telecasts, digital media campaigns, and Fight Week integrations. At select participating retail locations, P3 displays will feature images of UFC athletes and official UFC logos at point of sale.

P3 will be present at UFC® 228: WOODLEY vs. TILL

The first P3 activation with UFC will begin on Saturday, September 8, with UFC® 228: WOODLEY vs. TILL, featuring the highly anticipated welterweight championship bout that will see Tyron Woodley defend against undefeated No.2-ranked contender Darren Till.
