UFC Signs a “Spirit Sponsor”

(Actual slogan: "The One With The Deer On It.")

If you’ve been feeling like recent UFC events have lacked ‘spirit,’ I have some good news for you.  The UFC now has an “official spirit sponsor,” and it’s Tequila Cazadores.  Giddy-up.

According to a recent press release, “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.”

That’s right, UFC-related tequila tastings.  Is it just me, or did it suddenly get dangerously awesome in here?  And I do mean literally dangerous, because there are very few scenarios that begin with feeding tequila to testosterone-fueled young men and do not then move directly to chairs being thrown, shirts removed, faces punched, and property damaged.  But hey, where I come from we just call that spirit.

Now begins the countdown to the moment we hear Joe Rogan say, “Talk us through the Tequila Cazadores replay.”  It’s still better than Mickey’s Fine Malt Liquor.  Oh, how far we’ve come.

Hmmmm....the one with the Deer on it? That reminds me of another Very popular liquor with a deer on the bottle....Jagermeister. Could they be trying to fool drunk college guys into buying the wrong bottle?

Did you just talk shit on Mickey's?!? That stuff was the tits back when you could get a 40oz for 95 cents. Now you might as well just buy beer you like. The days of bargain drinking have passed us by, gents. No tequila for me, senor. Last time I drank it I blacked out and woke up with the biggest whore in my high school.

So now the UFC and Golden Boy share a sponsor. Wonder if Dana did that on purpose.....

oops- Mezcal, not Mexcal.

Mmmm! Cazadores is some good stuff. If all you have experienced is Jose Cuervo Gold, no wonder you don't like tequila. Quick lesson from a tequilla lover-

Tequila is derived from the Agave plants (the best ones are in the Mexican state of Jalisco). If your bottle has a worm in it, it's not tequila; it's mexcal- a non distilled spirit for the agave. Blanco, or silver tequila has just been distilled an is clear- great for margaritas. Reposados are aged in barrells for less than a year and have a yellowish color- great shooters. Finally, the anejo is aged over a year and is to be sipped like a fine scotch. Make sure your bottle (whatever you get) is 100% de Agave. Salud!

Are they going to serve semen-sushi at those adult consumer tastings?

It's about fuckin time!
GSP is not impressed- February 25, 2009 at 4:24 pm
I was watching the last UFC event, Sanchez vs Stevens, and was a little shocked to see beer bottles in the crowds.

Beer bottles. As in made of glass, not that aluminum bottle shit that budweiser does. Can you imagine that here in the states at an event like this? Most events I go to, MMA related or not, beer is doled out in flimsy dixies cups so nobody gets shanked or bashed over the head. I guess its just how the British get down.

You know Cazadores is good because it's made with authentic Mexican deer.

Tequila goes with fighting almost as well as Harley Davidson goes with midlife crisis's.

sorry CP but uh....who gives a fuck?
Fedor a million ankles- February 25, 2009 at 3:47 pm
I would never buy a bottle with a deer on it full of pale yellow liquid. Ick.
