CHICAGO, Jan. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Glenn Robinson, Chief Executive Officer of JACO, the elite performance sports brand that designs apparel for high performance hybrid training, today announced that JACO will be the exclusive clothing sponsor for the UFC on FOX headliner “Suga” Rashad Evans in the nationally broadcast event this Saturday, January 28, live from the United Center in Chicago.
The former light heavyweight champion of the UFC, Evans (21-1-1) will battle the undefeated rising star in Phil “Mr. Wonderful” Davis (9-0) in the first official fight that is part of FOX’s seven year, $700 million deal with the Ultimate Fighting Championship organization.
“As a former champion, this UFC on FOX event determines whether my next fight is a chance to reclaim the UFC light heavyweight title,” said Evans. “This is also a live nationally broadcast television event, and I will be fighting for a sold out crowd in my hometown of Chicago. This is the time for me to perform at my absolute best, and I will be wearing only JACO – the absolute best performance gear in the industry.”
“JACO is honored to serve as the exclusive clothing sponsor for ‘Suga’ Rashad Evans in the live UFC on FOX event this Saturday night,” said Robinson. “I look forward to Rashad’s walk to the Octagon wearing JACO’s gear and classic Tenacity logo in black and new ‘SugaFly’ yellow, and to watching him walk back out the number one contender in the light heavyweight division.”
Evans and his team, Head Coach Mike Van Arsdale, Striking Coach Brian Douwes, and Ground Coach Flavius Silva will wear matching JACO black and “SugaFly” yellow training jackets, T-shirts and pants from Evans’ hot new trademark “SUGAFLY” Collection.
