The deal terms were not publicly disclosed, but according to sources, it’s worth $175 million over 10 years.

Ultimate Fighting Championship, a major global mixed martial arts organization, continues its deep dive into the cryptocurrency industry by announcing a sponsorship deal with a cryptocurrency exchange.

UFC announced Wednesday that it agreed to a fight-kit partnership with Crypto.com, one of the world’s largest crypto trading platforms by trading volumes, CNBC reported.

According to CNBC, the sponsorship is worth $175 million and will last over 10 years.

As part of the agreement, Crypto.com’s brand will appear on fight kit items worn by athletes during competition as well as clothing worn by the training staff. Additionally, Crypto.com has acquired the rights to UFC’s newly launched sponsorship category known as “Cryptocurrency Platform Partner.”

Crypto.com co-founder and CEO Kris Marszalek called the UFC deal a “historic moment,” noting that it would help the sports industry “accelerate the world’s transition to cryptocurrency.”

Ari Emanuel, CEO of talent agency Endeavor, which purchased a stake in UFC in April, said that the agreement is “just the beginning of a long relationship with UFC.”
