BlueGrace(R) Logistics Sponsors UFC(R) Fighters in January 28 Matchup

Freight and Logistics Concept Emphasizes Unique Corporate Culture with Continued Support of MMA Fighters

January 27, 2012 // Franchising.com // TAMPA, Fla. – Tampa’s BlueGrace Logistics’ involvement in sponsoring MMA fighters for Ultimate Fighting Championship® (UFC) bouts continues with sponsorships of two contenders in matchups this weekend. BlueGrace is supporting main event fighter Rashad Evans and preliminary card event contender Michael Johnson. The UFC on FOX2 event will take place Saturday, January 28 at the United Center in Chicago.

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad “Suga” Evans will take on rising contender Phil Davis on Saturday in a non-title affair. Michael “The Menace” Johnson, a veteran of “The Ultimate Fighter 12,” will face Shane Roller after Johnson’s original opponent, Cody McKenzie, was forced to bow out of the upcoming contest due to injury.

“MMA fighters exemplify determination, discipline and integrity, which is the reason BlueGrace gets involved in the sponsoring these tremendous athletes.” said BlueGrace President and CEO Bobby Harris.

MMA is one of the fastest growing sports today and BlueGrace has a number of customers across the nation who are fanatics, as well as corporate employees who enjoy the sport. MMA stars such as Thiago Alves and Carlos Condit often visit the BlueGrace headquarters for career fairs and onsite broadcast interviews on WTAN Sports Radio, providing a level of engagement for customers who frequently visit the headquarters as well. In addition, many of the fighters are highly engaged with social media, using forums such as Twitter as an opportunity to connect with the BlueGrace team and generate excitement about both brands.

BlueGrace Logistics is one of the fastest growing and most progressive providers of transportation, logistics and technology solutions to businesses and individuals nationwide, serving more than 2,500 customers in 60 cities. In addition to its January 28 sponsorship of Evans and Johnson, the company has also previously sponsored such MMA fighters as Thiago Alves, Alistair Overeem, Carlos Condit, Donald Cerrone, Johny Hendricks, Vagner Rocha, Pat Barry and Roy Nelson.
