OPRO sign Danny Roberts as UFC brand ambassador


OPRO, the world’s largest manufacturer of the most technically advanced mouthguard, have signed UFC Welterweight star, Danny Roberts, as their first ever UFC brand ambassador.

The partnership with Danny forms part of OPRO’s ambitious plans to continue to grow their presence in the combat sports market, cementing their position not only as the mouthguard of MMA, but also of combat sports as a whole.

This partnership comes after OPRO announced their global, multi-year licensing agreement with UFC back in January 2018. A deal which grants the oral protection giants the rights to produce UFC branded mouthguards and provide bespoke mouthguards to UFC athletes.

David Allen, OPRO CEO, said: “We’re delighted to have Danny on board. Danny has been a fan of our mouthguards for many years, so this is a particularly exciting deal for us that reflects our continued growth in the combat sports market.”

Danny, who has a record of five wins and two losses in the UFC, joins the likes of Double Taekwondo World Champion, Bianca Walkden, and British Karate World Champion, Jordan Thomas, signifying OPRO’s commitment to providing only the very best protection for athletes across combat sports.

For Danny, it’s also a particularly exciting time as he competes on the main card of UFC Fight Night 147 in a Welterweight bout against Claudio Silva. The highly anticipated event takes place on March 16 at London’s O2 Arena and will see Danny wear one of his bespoke, custom made OPRO mouthguards.

Danny said: “I’m really excited to be on board with OPRO. Their mouthguards really are the real deal in terms of comfort, fit and protection. MMA is a sport of skill, power and precision so I need to know that I have the best protection when it comes to my mouthguard. OPRO mouthguards are a cut above the rest and I have complete confidence in its protection and fit as I head into my fight on Saturday.”

OPRO have partnerships with hundreds of teams and associations across the globe including the likes of Great Britain Taekwondo, USA Wrestling, Wrestling Canada Lutte, USA Taekwondo and the German, French, Italian, Cameroonian and Northern Ireland Mixed Martial Arts Federations.
