UFC sponsoring Outsports LGBTQ Pride March in New York

June 22, 2018

MMA Fighting reports that the UFC is sponsoring the LGBTQ Pride March in New York for SBNation web site Outsports.  It is the presenting sponsor of the Outsports NYC Price March.

Outsports covers LBTQ athletes and is a sister-site of MMA Fighting and Bloody Elbow.

Tecia Torres, Nina Ansaroff and Sijara Eubanks will be part of the march this weekend.  All 3 are openly gay.

Payout Perspective:

The sponsorship for the event makes sense considering the number of openly gay athletes in the UFC.  Perhaps there’s a scheduling issue but I’m surprised Amanda Nunes is not a part of the event.  Ansaroff and Nunes are engaged.  Torres also is dating fellow UFC fighter Raquel Pennington.  A couple years ago, the UFC made an effort to reach out to the LGBTQ community and its nice to see them lend their support once again.
