Press Release: Bodega Premium Blends Continues to Sponsor UFC Fighter Mitch Gagnon

Toronto -‐ August 25, 2014 – Bodega Premium Blends @BodegaCigars is excited to announce their continued support for MMA fighter Mitch Gagnon @MitchGagnonUFC. With an impressive 11-­‐2 record and two UFCTM Fight Bonuses in his last four fights, Mitch is considered, by many, as the top bantamweight in Canada. With a wrestling and grappling background, Mitch’s standup talents have impressed fans as of late. His aggressive style makes for exciting fights that rarely make it passed the first two rounds.

Mitch’s next opponent will be undefeated fighter Aljamain Sterling at UFC Fight Night 54 in Halifax Canada, on October 4th 2014. This will be Mitch’s fifth fight in the OctagonTM. His goal: to make it four wins in a row. “Having Bodega in my corner, during my fights, is a lot more than just having their support. They’ve become family”: declared Gagnon.

“Our partnership with Mitch dates from a few years ago”, stated Chief Brand Officer Ron Plante. “Enjoying a Digestivo during the gathering of friends and brothers, at a post fight celebration, is what Bodega Premium Blends is all about” he continued.

“Our commitment to Mitch, to his training plays out usually at After Party events” said Chief Relationship Officer Stephane Barjolin. “It’s a natural fit… ReuniónTM of Friends and Bodega Cigars.”

Rob Mariani, Chief Strategy Officer, was quoted: “My first live UFCTM event was the Jones/Gustafsson card in Toronto where Mitch was awarded Submission of the night. The adrenaline, the sense of camaraderie I felt was surreal.” Rob added: “We hope Mitch has room for us in the future… His star is bright and rising”.

CEO, Gino Domanico @Cigar_G added: “Investing in your life’s momentsTM isn’t just some crafty marketing tagline. We truly believe in contributing to all our friends lives whether it’s helping Mitch aspire to greater heights or simply offering new, exciting and premium blends to all our customers.”

Thats pretty rare seeing cigars sponsoring any sport, of any kind. First that I can recall.

No, I said the same thing when they first sponsored Mitch for his last fight - I've never seen it before.  Doesn't mean it hasn't happened, but its a new arena for me.
