WSOF-GC Expands Into Argentina With South America Affiliate, ULLAMP
Apr 29, 2016
World Series of Fighting – Global Championship (WSOF-GC) has once again placed a strategic hold on another viable MMA market, by signing a strategic agreement with Union Latinoamericana de Luchadores de Artes Marciales Profesionales (ULLAMP / Latin America Union of Professional Martial Arts Fighters) in Argentina to showcase their talent on the international MMA landscape.
ULLAMP President, Martin Gabriel Rodriguez states, “It’s a great honor for ULLAMP to join the WSOF Global family. Since 2009, through hard work, dedication, and a love that only true martial arts professionals can understand, we have produced events in seven Latin America countries. We have promoted a total of 59 events featuring amateurs, semi-professional, and professional athletes. Most of our events have been held in Patagonia, but we have extended into every province in Argentina. This partnership will allow us to continue to grow in the international market beyond our current borders. We are excited to bring ULLAMP to every continent in the world.”
ULLAMP CEO, Marcelo Barreira adds, “I want to give a special thank you to everyone who has helped make this possible. It has been an honor to work with many great people in Argentina to develop MMA and other combat sports. This new era will show our fighters from Argentina and Latin America to the rest of the world. By mixing our events as a combination of MMA, Sanda, boxing, and kickboxing, martial arts fans will see a truly different style of show. We look forward to keeping our new international spectators entertained and becoming new fans of our events.”
“I think the one thing people need to realize is that Martin and Marcelo are not just promoters, they are fighters as well,” emphasizes Zachary ‘Bootsy’ Harris, WSOF-GC Affiliate Coordinator. “They have a passion for martial arts that very few people will ever truly grasp. They both compete at a very high level and promote on an equally high level. We are fortunate to have a great team and organization like ULLAMP join our affiliate program.”
“The amount of response we have had from organizations around the globe has been unbelievable. They truly see the value of partnering with us to assist them with brand recognition and generating additional exposure to their already great product,” said WSOF-GC President, Shawn Wright. “This now makes eight new promotions we have added into our family since the beginning of 2016. That’s eight promotions on five continents.”
ULLAMP will host their next event on June 18 in Caleta Olivia, Santa Cruz, Patagonia, Argentina. Every MMA fan can watch an unlimited number of events from around the world for only $4.99 per month at WSOFGC.com.
World Series of Fighting Global’s ultimate mission is to bring together the best athletes from countries and organizations across the world to compete for a true, globally-recognized world champion.
