UFC Air Asia

In 2018, UFC and AirAsia will select its first ever UFC scholarship program recipient from Asia.

This is part of UFC’s new partnership with the airline company. According to a UFC press release, AirAsia is now the UFC’s first ever “Official Airline” sponsor. The partnership, which encompasses Asia and Australia, will begin on Saturday, November 4, during the UFC 217 card.

AirAsia will begin its international activations during UFC Fight Night Shanghai on Saturday, November 25 at Mercedes-Benz Arena in mainland China. With this partnership, AirAsia will also serve as presenting sponsor of select UFC Fan Experiences throughout the region and promote a national sweepstakes campaign where two fans will win a UFC VIP Experience during an event in 2018. This partnership will also include monthly training sessions featuring UFC athletes and members of the UFC Performance Institute’s staff.

Additionally, the UFC will have its first ever scholarship program. As part of this program, one Asia-based athlete will be awarded an all-expenses paid scholarship that includes travel to the United States and training at the UFC Performance Institute in Las Vegas, Nevada.
