UFC CBD Partnership:
Joining the Battle for Better Health

Our UFC CBD partnership started with a passion for mixed martial arts and the bodybuilding community. From day one, it was a natural fit. Why? Because we put the same sweat, blood, and grit into building the Fusion brand that we see in our athletes every day. On and off the Octagon, we have the same fire in our belly and drive for success!

By partnering with top UFC, MMA and bodybuilding athletes we set out to prove that CBD:

  • Enhances athletic performance and ability
  • Boosts pre-workout energy levels
  • Helps with focus, concentration, and mental clarity during a workout
  • Speeds up the post-workout recovery process and aids with healing
  • Helps regulate weight levels by reducing fat and burning calories
  • Relieves muscle soreness and minimizes associated pain
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Lowers stress levels
  • Improves sleep patterns
  • Calms the stomach and minimizes nausea
Official Partners of the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship

“The fastest growing combat sport in the USA,” Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC) has trusted Fusion CBD Products as its official partner since 2019. BKFC is the first promotion allowed to hold a legal, sanctioned, and regulated bare-knuckle event in the United States since 1889. The championship is dedicated to not just creating the safest, most exciting, and highest level bare-knuckle fighting organization in the world, it’s also leading the way for a new, fully recognized professional combat sport. Fusion’s mission is to support them in getting there; not only through sponsorship but by helping bare-knuckle fighters achieve peak athletic performance and safe recovery.

We work with some of the best of the best that swear by Fusion CBD Products as part of the rigorous training program and regimented daily lifestyle.
