ETFMG extends sponsorship deal with UFC heavyweight Alexey Oleynik

Fresh off his 60th victory at UFC 273, heavyweight Alexey Oleynik’s sponsorship deal with ETF Managers Group (ETFMG) was extended on April 20.

The extension, which started in 2019, continues Oleynik’s primary promotion of the MJ exchange traded fund (MJ ETF), the first and world’s largest exchange-traded fund traded at the New York Stock Exchange. The fund is designed to give investors access to top names in global cannabis.

“He’s the hardest working guy in the UFC. This is well deserved,” ETF Mangers Group CEO Sam Masucci said in a press release.

“ETFMG has been a great partner, and Sam has become a great friend,” Oleynik (60-16-1), 44, added. “I am honoured to continue representing this outstanding brand.”

Oleynik recently submitted Jared Vanderaa at UFC 273. He is the only fighter to win fights in four different decades. His seven submission wins is also second most in UFC heavyweight history.

Financial terms were not disclosed.
