"Belt The Champ" Winner Will Have Chance to Participate in UFC History

Play Ultimate Poker now for the chance to award the championship belt to Jon Jones or Dan Henderson after their September 1st fight in Las Vegas.
Throughout the history of the UFC, there are few moments as iconic and memorable as the ones when the championship belt is placed around a fighter’s waist as Octagon announcer Bruce Buffer declares him the winner. This act announces to the world that the fighter now wearing the belt is the best of the best in his division.

Currently, the men holding this honor are the superstars of the sport, ranging from all-time greats Anderson Silva and Georges St-Pierre to those seen as future greats like Jon Jones, Junior dos Santos, Dominick Cruz, Benson Henderson, Jose Aldo, Carlos Condit, and Renan Barao.

And while this is certainly a diverse group, the one thing they all have in common is that there has been only one man tasked with the job of giving them their championship belt in the Octagon on fight night, and that man is UFC President Dana White.

Until now.

On Saturday, September 1st in Las Vegas, Nevada, White will surrender his duties for one night and one fight only, as the Grand Prize winner of Ultimate Poker’s “Belt The Champ” tournament will not only win roundtrip airfare to Vegas, hotel accommodations, Octagonside seats, and an exclusive backstage pass, but he or she will also step into the Octagon after the main event light heavyweight title bout between Jones and Dan Henderson to award the belt to the champion.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity that will forever put the Grand Prize winner in the annals of UFC history, but to have this shot at glory, you’ve got to play the game, and all it takes is a visit to https://apps.facebook.com/ultimatepoker/ to begin.

Once you’ve logged on, look for the “Belt The Champ” Round One tournaments in the ‘Sit N Go’ Tab. Click 'Register' to register in the tournament, and you’ll be on your way.
