Tequila Cazadores Spirit Award

It’s encouraging to see spirits brands being welcomed as sponsors of mainstream sports. Since early 2009, Tequila Cazadores has been the Official Spirit Sponsor of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, or UFC. Part of that sponsorship includes the “Tequila Cazadores Spirit Award”, which is given out on a monthly basis “to the UFC fighter who best exemplifies social responsibility, commitment to the MMA art form, or good sportsmanship” according to the spirits company.

UFC fans decide the winner by voting online, with the most recent recipient of the award being UFC bantamweight Miguel Angel Torres. Tequila Cazadores VP & Brand Managing Director Fannie Young says, “Miguel’s work-ethic in and out of the Octagon are an inspiration to us at Tequila Cazadores. Miguel’s dedication to his craft and strong, competitive spirit make him the perfect recipient of this award.  We are proud to honor such a talented fighter who embodies the core values of our brand.” Tequila Cazadores donates $1,000 to a charity of each winner’s choosing, with Mr. Torres supporting the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

• Forrest Griffin – May 23, 2009

  1. Manly Wine Consumption – MMA Fight Night | By the glass ... a wine blog by Woodland Hills Wine Co. | Tuesday, October 4, 2011

    […] Due to completely unrelated circumstances, I try to no longer watch the fights at bars and have started watching the fights at a buddy’s house, where a handful of guys will share the expenses. Everyone always drinks beer. It’s always Bud Light, the official beer sponsor of the UFC. Unless you are a Brock Lesnar fan, in which case, you drink Coor’s Light. If it devolves into tequila shots, don’t worry, the official spirit sponsor of the UFC is Tequila Cazadores. […]
