“SafeAuto is happy to continue our sponsorship of the UFC,” said SafeAuto President Jon Diamond.  “Fans of the UFC appreciate all the hard work that these athletes put into mixed martial arts.  We look forward to continuing our support for this growing sport, as well as the athletes themselves.”

“SafeAuto has been a great partner for the UFC and we are excited to continue working with them as we get ready for some of the biggest years in UFC history,” Mike Mossholder, UFC Vice President of Global Marketing Partnerships, said.

The SafeAuto Fight Team site includes exclusive interviews, previews, and videos of all the company’s sponsored fighters.
