Earlier this year, the UFC announced that they had renewed their sponsorship deal with Bud Light. The promotion revealed that Bud Light would increase their pay-per-view sponsorships from two events per year to four. Bud Light also agreed to back one special promotion event per year.
The special promotion event for this year will be "The Battle on the Bayou," which is scheduled to take place on September 17 in New Orleans, LA. Bud Light has already rolled out a commercial for that event featuring UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and UFC president Dana White.
The "special promotion" part of the New Orleans fight card is that Bud Light is giving away trips for two to New Orleans on their facebook page.
It appears that the next event that Bud Light will sponsor will be UFC 132. They have recently released a commercial for the event featuring UFC octagon girl Arianny Celeste.
UFC 132 will take place on July 2 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV. The main event on the card will feature the UFC's first bantamweight title fight as champion Dominick Cruz defends his title against the only man to defeat him, Urijah Faber.
Also appearing on the UFC 132 fight card will be Wanderlei Silva who will make his long-awaited return to the cage. His opponent will be Chris Leben.
Tito Ortiz will fight for his UFC career on the UFC 132 fight card, as Dana White has said that this is Ortiz's last chance with the promotion. Ortiz has not won a fight since 2006 and will be the underdog on July 2 when he faces Ryan Bader.
