The most sought after martial arts fighting stage, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), has penned down a partnership renewal with the sports supplements brand, Thorne HealthTech.
UFC commenced this partnership in 2019 by providing Thorne’s NSF Certified for Sport supplements to its star athletes.
Through this extension, the premier MMA organisation will continue to inculcate the sports brand’s highly certified supplements into fighter’s food charts developed by the UFC-registered dietitians and nutritionists. With this move, both parties would aim to further strengthen and nurture their relationship and commitment as, since the start, there has been no record of a failed drug test or weight management problem by consuming these supplements.
Clint Wattenberg, the Director of Sports Nutrition at UFC Performance Institute, gave his opinion on the renewal and said, “In the first three years of our partnership, Thorne products have become an indispensable component of UFC athlete fight preparation and recovery tactics through the UFC Performance Institute’s nutrition team. Thorne products are made of the highest quality ingredients, allowing for precision supplementation and enabling our dieticians to better meet each athlete’s individual performance, recovery, and nutritional support needs.”
Paul Jacobson, Thorne’s CEO, commented on this extension and said, “When we were approached by UFC to partner and support athlete health and performance, we saw an opportunity to leverage our health intelligence platforms, including testing, data-based solutions and Thorne supplements, to further optimize a fighter’s performance. We are thrilled that our commitment to providing scientifically backed, clean, natural solutions for the most unique and complex health and wellness issues is helping UFC’s ecosystem of athletes and dieticians to achieve better health and performance.”
Thorne HealthTech is known and trusted for delivering a supreme scale of products in professional sports. With certifications like NSF International for implementing Good Manufacturing Practices and NSF Certified for Sport, the entity has developed more than 30 supplements that nourish the athletes.
