These sponsorships are used to cover expenses incurred by the fighters and coaching staff including training, travel, meals, and equipment. In addition to the pride of supporting the Berkshires’ premier Mixed Martial Arts team, sponsors are recognized in a variety of ways. Their name or logo appears on a “fight banner”, which is displayed at each event that the fight team participates in, as well as other demos and special events. Sponsors also appear on a "Walkout" style T-shirt, which is also used at the events and sold at the gym. Lastly, sponsors are mentioned on the ZenQuest website and social media.
ZenQuest’s MMA team currently has an impressive record of 9-1. Most of that has happened over the last two years, since our last round of sponsorships. Two fighters, Neil “Beast Mode” Von Flatern and Matt “The Machine” Bienia, have currently risen to amateur championship levels. In addition, there are other competitors working towards their own debut in the fight game.
This sponsorship round was more successful than the first back in early 2015. Once again, big thanks to all of the sponsors!!
