SafeAuto Insurance had an unforgettable weekend in Atlanta, Georgia as the UFC® invaded the Peach State. The state-minimum auto insurance carrier was the official sponsor of the UFC® 145 Tailgate Party at Centennial Park in the downtown Atlanta area. Thousands of fight fans visited the SafeAuto booth on an overcast Saturday afternoon as a surprise guest arrived to sign autographs.
Clay Guida, an official member of the SafeAuto Fight Team and one of the more recognizable faces in the UFC, signed autographs for three hours for crazed fans at the SafeAuto Insurance booth. Despite the long line, “The Carpenter” signed every last autograph and posed for photos with the patient fans.
“Wow, I wasn’t expecting this type of turnout,” remarked Guida. “It’s humbling to know that thousands of fans are anxious to meet me. I’ve always enjoyed interacting with my fans, the turnout at the SafeAuto Insurance booth today was incredible!”
As the SafeAuto Tailgate Party concluded, fans headed down the street to Phillips Arena for UFC® 145. SafeAuto Fight Team member Travis “Hapa” Brown, was looking to make a lasting impression in the heavyweight division as he took on Chad Griggs. After a vicious knee to the head, Brown was able to take control of Griggs on the ground and force his opponent to tap out midway through the first round en route to victory.
The win by the 6’7 fighter known as the “Flyin Hawaiian” made it known to the fighting community that Brown is a force to be reckoned with in the heavyweight division. A heavyweight bout between Travis Browne (13-0-1 MMA, 4-0-1 UFC) and Ben Rothwell (32-8 MMA, 2-2 UFC) was the most recent addition to this summer’s UFC on FOX 4 fight card.
As Travis Browne continues his mission to become the heavyweight champion, SafeAuto Insurance will continue to represent popular fighters in an effort to make mixed martial art fans aware that they are the strongest auto insurance company in the UFC®.
