UFC stand down from British Judo sponsorship deal

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) have agreed to stand down as British Judo sponsors with immediate effect, to support the progress of the British Judo Association and British Judo athletes.

British Judo and the Ultimate Fighting Championship have amicably agreed to part ways meaning further sponsorship and advertising through British Judo will come to an end. The UFC had previously planned to sponsor the British Open, which will take place in July, but have now stepped down as sponsor.

We would like to thank UFC for the way they have handled this situation and for their support and sponsorship to date.
