Oakland, California resident Nicholas Posner has been a diehard UFC fan from the very beginning. In fact, when the Ultimate Fighting Championship was banned from television, Posner would rent the VHS tapes so he could watch his favorite fighters. So imagine his excitement when he received word that he had won SafeAuto’s “VIP at the UFC” contest.
“I’ve never won anything like this before in my life,” exclaimed Posner. “When SafeAuto explained that the grand prize included airfare, hotel and tickets to UFC 137 — plus a private meet and greet with Donald “Cowboy” Cerronein Las Vegas — I thought I was dreaming.”
Posner and his friend Ray never miss a PPV, so his first challenge after winning the contest was to get permission from his girlfriend to make the trip with him. Said Posner, “I got the necessary permission from the G/F. So, on a scale of 1-10, my excitement level is 1,000,000!”
As an official sponsor of the UFC, this is the second such contest to be held by SafeAuto. Before the “VIP at the UFC” trip to Las Vegas, the state minimum auto insurer provided two lucky fans with a trip to UFC 133 in Philadelphia. “We’re as excited about the UFC as our Facebook fans are,” said SafeAuto President Jon Diamond. “Our customers love this sport and we’re thrilled to be able to provide a VIP experience to the lucky winners!”
Posner believes that, when it comes to the UFC, SafeAuto is definitely on the right track. “Giving away a prize package like this is a great way to meet new customers,” said Posner. “And with the MMA quickly becoming mainstream, it’s easy to see the potential. Before entering this contest on Facebook, I had never heard of Safe Auto. Now I’ll never forget them.”
As for the fight itself, Posner and his best friend Ray will see SafeAuto Fight Team Member Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone battle it out with Dennis Siver at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The main card for the evening will be Georges St. Pierre versus Carlos Condit. “I’m juiced to see Condit finally bring a fight to St. Pierre and make him finish! For me, this is the perfect prize!”
