UFC to push Glasgow’s hosting of European Judo Championships

The Ultimate Fighting Championship mixed martial arts series has announced a promotional partnership with the 2015 European Judo Championships.

UFC will support the event, which takes place at Glasgow’s Emirates Arena on April 9-12, through branding, marketing and promotion to its MMA audience.

The partnership builds on UFC’s established association with the British Combat Sports Federation.

David Allen, senior vice-president and general manager at the UFC, said: “MMA is made up of a number of different combat sports and UFC feel it is important to see individual disciplines thrive as well as promoting mixed martial arts. The European Judo Championships will be a fantastic platform for fans and practitioners to see world-class sport in a great city.”
