HARLEY-DAVIDSON AND UFC® UP THE ANTE AT UFC® 177 AND GIVE ONE LUCKY FAN THE CHANCE TO THROW

THE ULTIMATE PARTY OF A LIFETIME

One Fan Will Win a New Harley-Davidson® Motorcycle and a Rockin’ Weekend as

Host of a 2015 UFC Fight in Their Hometown

Las Vegas, Nev. ‒ Harley-Davidson and the Ultimate Fighting Championship® (UFC) will launch a new contest at UFC 177 this weekend sure to make one fan an instant hometown hero. The Harley-Davidson Hometown Throwdown III event puts one lucky fan and their city in the spotlight; the two iconic brands will roll into the winner’s home town with the ultimate prize package – a UFC fight and tailgate party topped off with custom Harleys, live music, Octagon Girls® and more. 

The contest, running through Dec. 31, 2014, kicks off with a bang Aug. 30 at UFC 177 in Sacramento, where Harley-Davidson will award a custom Harley-Davidson cruiser from their 2015 motorcycle lineup launched earlier this week to each of the five winning fighters on the main card, giving the fighters a reason to fight even harder.

“We want fans and fighters to know that when Harley-Davidson and UFC come together something big is about to happen,” said Dino Bernacchi, U.S. Marketing Director at Harley-Davidson. “We are raising the stakes for UFC 177 by giving each bout winner a new motorcycle, and we’re also bringing back for the third year a fan favorite – the Hometown Throwdown event – which proves to be a once-in-a-lifetime way to experience the world’s best fighters and the only motorcycle brand worthy of being in the Octagon.”

Fans can clinch the chance to host what could be the most street-rumbling, all-out bash their town has ever seen by explaining why their city should be the next location for the 2015 Harley-Davidson Hometown Throwdown event and how they would be the ultimate host at www.h-d.com/UFC.
