UFC continued its "Octagon of Excellence" community outreach program by committing $5,000 to The Urban Assembly's Bronx Academy of Letters. While they cannot legally promote MMA in the state, the promotion will remain involved in New York. UFC Executive Reed Harris offered up the following comments….
"We got involved after we learned that even though this school is based on the academic principles of literature, they had sanctioned an ongoing jiu-jitsu club. "It's always great to see educators expanding their horizons and incorporating a program that will help the students learn focus, control and commitment in the jiu-jitsu environment."
The grant will assist the academy with the purchase of mixed martial arts equipment.
