UFC announces partnership with Performance Inspired

Las Vegas – UFC® today announced a new partnership with Performance Inspired™ that establishes the brand as the “Official Sports Supplement” of UFC. With this partnership, Performance Inspired will supply its line of sports products to the UFC Performance Institute at the “Performance Inspired Fueling Station” for use by athletes currently competing under the UFC banner that visit the facility.

“The UFC has the most comprehensive anti-doping program in sports, and we just opened a state-of-the-art performance institute at our new offices, so the health and performance of our athletes is essential to everything we do,” UFC President Dana White said. “That’s why we’re partnering with Mark (Wahlberg). The reason he’s been incredibly successful is because he does things the right way, so our fighters know his Performance Inspired products are top quality, natural ingredients, that are safe to use and will help them maximize their own performance.”

“Inspiring people to be active and healthy is rewarding for me personally and the charity element of our business is an added benefit,” Performance Inspired Co-Founder Mark Wahlberg said. “It’s one of the reasons we created Performance Inspired, as it’s all about giving back and helping athletes on any level maximize their true potential. UFC athletes need nutritional support and we’re glad we can fill this necessity.”

“We’re proud UFC has put their trust in Performance Inspired products,” Performance Inspired Co-Founder Tom Dowd said. “We spared no expense formulating Performance Inspired to ensure our products both taste amazing with meaningful formulas to support the needs of athletes and customers who are looking for effective high-end nutrition they can trust.”

In addition to product placement at the UFC Performance Institute, Performance Inspired will also have a presence inside UFC’s world-famous Octagon®, on UFC.com and live-event programming, as well as being integrated across multiple UFC-based social and digital platforms.

As the world’s first mixed martial arts multi-disciplinary research, innovation and performance center, the Performance Institute is a state-of-the-art 30,000 square-foot facility providing benefits and services to all athletes competing under the UFC banner. The Performance Institute is equipped with a full-time staff of experts in the fields of strength and conditioning, nutrition and physical therapy, with a designed focus to provide athletes with world class performance optimization, at no cost to the athletes.
