The SafeAuto Fight Team website ( includes exclusive interviews, previews and videos of all the company’s sponsored fighters, as well as UFC content.

“SafeAuto is happy to continue our sponsorship of the UFC,” said SafeAuto CEO Ron Davies. “Fans of the UFC appreciate all the hard work that these athletes put into mixed martial arts. We are proud to be the only car insurance company that is an official sponsor of the UFC. We look forward to continuing our support of this growing sport, as well as the athletes themselves.”

“We’ve built a valuable relationship with SafeAuto through the years and we’re pleased to continue our partnership,” said UFC Vice President of Global Marketing Partnerships Mike Mossholder. “Our partnership drives home the fact that SafeAuto is a well-established and industry-leading brand.
