You won’t meet two bigger UFC® fans than Michael Schweigert Hogart and Frank Horak. While attending broadcasting school together, the two hosted their own MMA radio show. With such a familiarity with the growing sport of mixed martial arts, the two couldn’t believe what they were about to experience courtesy of SafeAuto Insurance.
The diehard fans won airfare, hotel, tickets to the UFC® on FX bout in Minneapolis, plus a private meet and greet with SafeAuto Fight Team member Travis ‘Hapa’ Browne at the weigh-ins. “Not only did we get to meet one of our favorite fighters in Browne, we also got to meet Randy Couture and my dream girl, women’s Strikeforce champion Ronda Rousey,” stated an ecstatic Schweigert.
As an official sponsor of the UFC®, the state minimum auto insurance company will run several contests on their Facebook page to reward the rapid UFC® fan base. “Even though ‘Hapa’ couldn’t pull of the win, overall this trip was a once in a lifetime experience,” said Schweigert. “I’ve been bragging to all of my friends non stop about the access we got this weekend!”
SafeAuto tries to constantly stay engaged with their social media following. The “VIP at the UFC” Facebook contest was another example how they were able to excite their online following. “It really speaks volumes about SafeAuto that they would reward fans like this, it’s just amazing!” stated Schweigert.
