MIAMI, Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ — Tequila CAZADORES(R), the number-one premium tequila in the world, is proud to announce that it has been named the Official Spirit Sponsor of the Ultimate Fighting Championship(R) (“UFC(R)”) through March 2010. UFC is the world’s leading professional mixed martial arts organization (“MMA”) that offers a premier series of MMA sporting events.

This sponsorship will provide millions of adult UFC enthusiasts with the chance to enjoy a premium brand experience as Tequila CAZADORES takes the Octagon(TM) (eight-sided mat and cage) in upcoming UFC events. Just as UFC competitors, or “Ultimate Fighters(R),” are among the best-trained and conditioned athletes in the world, Tequila CAZADORES is the world’s best-selling premium tequila because of its uncompromising quality, authenticity and heritage. The sponsorship will introduce the authentic experience and taste of Tequila CAZADORES to UFC adult fans around the world.

“We are proud to be the Official Spirit Sponsor of UFC,” said Ariel Meyer, Vice President and Brand Managing Director, Tequila CAZADORES. “UFC organization has helped create mixed martial arts into a responsible, safe sport, with strict rules and regulations for athlete protection and fair play. Today, UFC is an increasingly popular event that reaches legal drinking-age consumers in an engaging environment for adult audiences. For these reasons we are excited about this partnership along with the opportunity to showcase Tequila CAZADORES as the “Spirit of Champions.”

This sponsorship brings two complementary brands together creating a winning combination. As the Official Spirit Sponsor, Tequila CAZADORES will be featured nationally through Pay-Per-View broadcasts, digital and print media content as well as venue signage throughout the year. In addition, Tequila CAZADORES will host special adult consumer tastings, events, and promotions to support the Sponsorship.

Handcrafted in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico, the premier agave growing region, Tequila CAZADORES is an authentic 100% agave tequila deeply rooted in heritage. This makes it the best way to salute the authentic spirit of the UFC contenders.

The official Tequila CAZADORES specialty cocktail, the CAZADORES “Ultimate” Shot Drink, will be available to enjoy at bars hosting events during the matches. Or, if you prefer a more mellowed tequila, replace the Blanco with Reposado, to create the CAZADORES “Face Off” Shot Drink.

    Cazadores is a shit Tequila, im from Guadalajara Jaliscon, 1 hour from Tequila.

    Cazadores is not make from the agave from Mexico.

    Drink to much and you gonna loose you vision.

    Better drink real Tequila like, Herradura, Don Julio, Chamuco, 1800, la cofradía, even Jimador is better.

  2. The Citizen says:

    Coyote, great post — does this mean that Harley D and Bud Light are gone?

    Get the Octogon Color Forms ready! Now we can see fighters slipping on a Tequila bottle.

  3. TequilaFan says:


    Your comments are completely false. Cazadores is made in Jalisco with agave from Jalisco. You can’t make tequila without sourcing agave from Mexico. Your comment doesn’t even make sense.

    Cool sponsorship for Cazadores for sure – recession wha?

  4. Zack says:

    LOL @ 1800 being better than the Caza. It’s all about 4 Copas Anejo. However for a tequila in the 35-50 price range, Corazon is the best.
