As the sport of mixed martial arts continues to gather more mainstream acceptance, the addition of major sponsors is a large part of that expansion. Alienware, Dell’s premier high-performance PC gaming brand, is the latest major sponsor to sign on to support MMA through a deal signed with Suckerpunch Entertainment and its stable of fighters.
The deal with Alienware, a subsidiary of Dell Computers, will begin immediately. It will feature sponsorship of upcoming UFC 113 fighter Matt Mitrione, who will face Kimbo Slice on the main card of the show in Montreal on May 8.
The deal will coincide with Suckerpunch's roster of fighters, which includes UFC stars like Amir Sadollah and Pat Barry as well as WEC fighter and legendary computer gamer Jens Pulver. The fighters will be supporting Alienware's new M11x system which is a 11.5 inch, fully portable laptop gaming computer.
