OPRO, the world’s leading provider of innovative and technically advanced mouthguards, have signed a one-year deal with leading Chinese mixed martial arts (MMA) organisation, Legend Fighting Championship (Legend FC).
Legend FC is China‘s original MMA organisation which invited national champion fighters from throughout the Asia-Pacific to compete for regional supremacy. Legend FC adapts Chinese martial arts to MMA, bringing out the stories behind the practitioners to help grow MMA across China.
As the Official Mouthguard of Legend FC, the deal will see OPRO supply all Legend FC fighters with elite level mouthguards that will be worn while training or competing inside the cage.
Legend FC fighters will receive their mouthguards in time for the organisations highly anticipated return to Macau’s MGM Theater on 14 September for Legend FC 13, which fans can tune in to watch on FOX Sports Asia, Guandong TV sports, Shenzhen TV, Jinghai TV, Shaanxi TV, Shanxi TV, Facebook Live, Tencent Sports, Sina Weibo, Zhibo.TV, GedouMi Live, Baidu Sports and NetEase Sports.
As well as Legend FC fighters receiving bespoke, OPRO Custom-Fit mouthguards, OPRO will work with Legend FC partner gyms to provide members with access to their award-winning product line at reduced prices.
The partnership comes at an exciting time with MMA being widely recognised as one of the fastest-growing sports in the world.
“At OPRO HQ we’ve had ambitious international expansion plans for some time now,” OPRO Sports Marketing Director, Daniel Lovat said. “We’re thrilled to be able to announce our partnership with Legend FC who have made huge strides in helping to grow MMA in Asia.
“OPRO have a number of high-profile partnerships in place within the world of combat sports and it’s truly very exciting to be able to include Legend FC in that line up.”
Matthew Kwok, Chairman of Legend Fighting Championship, said it was a privilege to work with OPRO as Legend FC extends the reach of mixed martial arts in China. “Legend Fighting Championship has exciting plans in place over the next 12 months and we are proud to take this journey with amazing partners like OPRO.”
