UFC World Champion Robert Whittaker Becomes Latest PlayChip Brand Ambassador
The current UFC Middleweight Champion struck a deal with the Universal Gaming Token in the lead up to his highly anticipated title fight at UFC 234 in Melbourne next month.
One of Australia’s biggest stars in mixed martial arts has joined the PlayChip Ambassador team ahead of his title clash with USA’s Kelvin Gastelum.
Robert “The Reaper” Whittaker, the incumbent UFC Middleweight Champion, is becoming one of the most recognisable names in the sport having remained unbeaten since 2014, racking up nine straight victories. He is currently ranked #12 on the UFC’s list of best pound-for-pound fighters.
Whittaker’s addition to the PlayChip family continues the Universal Gaming Token’s affiliation with the rapidly growing sport of Mixed Martial Arts, following its agreement with the striking coach of Conor McGregor, Owen Roddy, late last year. Cricketing icon, Brett Lee, rounds out the group of ambassadors for PlayChip.
PlayChip Foundation board member, Daniel Simic, was thrilled with addition of the prize-fighter and backed both parties for big things in 2019.
“We are proud to have Robert join the team ahead of his massive clash next month,” he said. “Robert embodies everything we strive for here at PlayChip – dedication, professionalism and an unstoppable drive for success”.
Robert Whittaker was also excited about the new partnership, saying, “PlayChip is at the cutting edge of online gaming. It’s a dynamic first mover in a big market and is a great fit for Team Whittaker. I look forward to changing the game of UFC and online gaming with PlayChip”.
Whittaker is defending his UFC Middleweight World Championship Belt at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne on February 10. He is fighting against 4th ranked US contender, Kelvin Gastelum, in a match where tickets sold out in just 3 hours.
