AppGear have recently just hit the jackpot for an amazing (and incredibly awesome!) social media campaign by getting the chance to work with UFC fighters taking part in UFC 154 this weekend (Saturday 17th November). To give you all my personal perspective while I write this blog… I want to let you know that I am officially shaking with excitement! I have been a UFC fan for many years and I now actually have the chance to work with some of these amazing athletes/fighters while promoting our incredible augmented reality game; Elite CommandAR.
Here’s a bit of background for all you non-fans… UFC was created in the United States back in 1993 and was originally promoted as a competition to determine the most effective martial arts for unarmed combat situations. It wasn’t long before the fighters realized that in order to compete and be the best, they would need to train in additional disciplines (fighting styles). UFC fighters began to morph themselves into well-rounded, balanced fighters who could fight standing or on the floor. The blend of fighting styles and skills became known as Mixed Martial Arts (MMA).
If you have never seen a UFC event before you should tune into the fight this weekend to check it out! These guys are incredible! But not only that… a few UFC fighters will be promoting Elite CommandAR during the event and we’ll have a competition running during this time on Twitter and Facebook where 5 lucky winners will get the chance to win autographed pictures as well as their very own Elite CommandAR to enjoy over the holiday season!
Stay tuned for further updates and information, which will be coming your way soon!
