Thanks to a dedicated community that donated over 50 000 HYPER to the cause, the HYPER project is pleased to announce sponsorship of Jon Fitch’s upcoming fight in the MMA World Series of Fighting on Saturday, April 2nd, 2016. This is the first time in the world an MMA fighter has been directly sponsored by a cryptocurrency.
The event will be televised live on NBC Sports Network on April 2nd, with Jon Fitch sporting the HYPER logo. The fight is being held at the Hard Rock Cafe in Las Vegas on April 2nd, 2016. In the co-main event at WSOF 30, former UFC welterweight title challenger Jon Fitch (27-7-1, 1 no-contest) meets Joao Zeferino (20-7). The two will fight for the vacant WSOF (World Series of Fighting) welterweight title.
In terms of sponsorship, blockchain based currencies like HYPER have many advantages over fiat, including the speed and ease of transactions. Jon Fitch commented that “it was the fastest sponsorship payment I have ever received.”
As well as embracing emerging disruptive technologies like cryptocurrencies, Jon Fitch is also a strong campaigner for MMA fighter’s rights. He strongly believes MMA fighters should have the same rights and protections as other professional athletes.
