Los Angeles— BELLATOR MMA, a leading global mixed martial arts organization, is proud to announce the addition of two new sponsorships from BLACKHAWK Tire and OLD WORLD INDUSTRIES and its PEAK brand.

BLACKHAWK Tire and PEAK will both be part of every national BELLATOR event with in-cage signage and co-branded posts on all BELLATOR social media channels. The mark for both begins this week in conjunction with BELLATOR 288, which will take place Friday, November 18 at Chicago’s Wintrust Arena and will stream live on SHOWTIME.® at 9 p.m. ET.

“We’re thrilled to become the ‘official tire’ of an iconic MMA brand like BELLATOR. This sponsorship aligns perfectly with BLACKHAWK Tire’s rugged attitude and the inspired performance we put behind every product we make, taking every tire from initial concept to the street,” said Mark Pereira, Chief Marketing Officer, BLACKHAWK Tire. “We are thrilled to have millions of fans around the world ‘Spot the Hawk’ at BELLATOR events with our logo on the web and throughout the arena.”

“BELLATOR MMA is a natural choice to connect with our consumers and promote PEAK® The Vision and Safety product line, including automotive lighting, wiper blades and windscreen washer, said Philip K Philip, CMO, Old World Industries. “We are just as excited about the sponsorship as we are about the BELLATOR MMA event happening this Friday night in Chicago, where our headquarters is located.”

Friday BELLATOR 288 is headlining two world championship fights, including the World Light Heavyweight Grand Prix Final rematch between world champion Vadim Nemkov (15-2, 1 NC) and ranked No. 1 Corey Anderson (16-5, 1 NC), while the co-main event includes Patrick “Pitbull” (24-10) defending his lightweight belt against the undefeated, ranked No. 1 Usman Nurmagomedov (15-0).
