UFC and Edge Shave Gel Partner in Edge of Greatness
The makers of Edge® Shave Gel and the folks at the Ultimate Fighting Championship® (UFC®) just announced a partnership to identify fighters on the "Edge of Greatness" which delivers an opportunity for them to be an official spokesman for Edge Shave Gel. Under the leadership of former two-division UFC champion BJ Penn, four rising UFC stars will compete for the public's endorsement to become the next face of "Team Edge."
This collection of the UFC's most exciting up-and-coming stars will be mentored by Penn as they continue their journeys in the UFC's hallowed Octagon®. Motivated by the chance to earn a year-long Edge sponsorship, the following fighters will compete in the "Edge of Greatness" contest:
- Phil "Mr. Wonderful" Davis - a Pennsylvania native and Division I NCAA champion wrestler who is quickly climbing the ranks in the 205-pound division. He will fight former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans in the main event of UFC 133 on August 6
- Chad "Money" Mendes - a two-time All-American wrestler, currently undefeated and going for his second UFC victory in UFC 133 on August 6
- Michael "Mayday" McDonald - currently the youngest UFC fighter who boasts a 13-1 MMA record and 2-0 record within the UFC
- Brian "All American" Stann - a former Marine Corps Captain and Silver Star recipient who has won his last three fights, including Fight of the Night honors at UFC 130
"Every fighter has a dream to make it big, and he knows he can get there if he only gets the right edge. I know what it's like to work for a shot at glory, so I'm excited to work with these four guys to help them make it in the UFC as part of 'Team Edge,' and I encourage all UFC fans to go online and vote for who's ready to achieve greatness." - BJ Penn
To help Edge decide who should be the next face of "Team Edge," UFC fans can vote at www.edgeshave.com/UFC. The fighter who receives the most votes will be sponsored by Edge, helping propel him one step closer to the "Edge of Greatness."
Fans can vote up to five times a day, and each time they can be entered to win a weekly prize pack or a trip to an upcoming Las Vegas event to meet Team Edge and see a live UFC showdown.
