Bud Light is set to return as the official beer of the UFC in the U.S. next year as the brand tries to recover from a conservative backlash to a promotion with a transgender influencer.
Under a new multiyear marketing deal between the promoter of mixed martial arts fights and Bud Light maker Anheuser-Busch, the brewer will become the UFC’s Official Beer Partner in the U.S. starting Jan. 1, the two companies announced.
Outside the U.S., AB InBev, the parent of Anheuser-Busch, will be UFC’s official global partner.
Financial details of the deal were not disclosed — but, citing a person familiar with the matter, Bloomberg reported that the global agreement marks the UFC’s largest sponsorship ever, surpassing a $175 million fight-kit deal signed with Crypto.com back in 2021.

A UFC spokesperson declined to comment on the financial terms of the partnership. Anheuser-Busch did not immediately respond to a request for comment Wednesday.
This isn’t the first time the UFC and the beer brand have paired up. Anheuser-Busch and Bud Light were UFC’s original beer sponsors more than 15 years ago, UFC CEO Dana White said in a Tuesday statement — adding that he feels UFC, Anheuser-Busch and Bud Light are very aligned when it comes to our core values.
News of the partnership comes during a rocky year for Anheuser-Busch. The brewer has seen a monthslong sales decline for Bud Light after conservative critics vowed to boycott the brand for sending a commemorative can to transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney earlier this year. Bud Light has also faced backlash from Mulvaney’s supporters and LGBTQ+ rights groups, who say the company didn’t do enough to support her.
In June, Bud Light lost its place as America’s best-selling beer after more than two decades, slipping into second place behind Mexican lager Modelo Especial. InBev also owns Modelo, but in the U.S. the brand is imported and sold by Constellation Brands.
In the main event, Alex Pereira (8-2-0) will become the first fighter headline back-to-back Madison Square Garden Fight cards, where he famously beat Adesanya for the belt last year at UFC 281. He’ll square off with Jiri Prochazka (29-3-1) for the vacant Light Heavyweight belt, which was previously held by Jamahal Hill, who vacated the title after rupturing his Achilles tendon.
The Pereira-Prochazka bout was originally slated to be the co-main event, but the planned Heavyweight headliner between Jon Jones and Stipe Miocic was scrapped due to Jones sustaining an injury to his pectoral muscles that required surgery.
