Bushmaster Firearms Sponsors WEC Featherweight Champion
Windham, Maina – -(OutDoorWire.com)- Bushmaster Firearms International, LLC, (BFI) is proud to announce its sponsorship of WEC Featherweight Champion, Mike Brown. Mike will defend his championship title on June 7 at the Arco Arena in Sacramento, California. The event will be broadcast on VERSUS at 9:00 p.m. EST.
Currently ranked as the #1 featherweight fighter in the world, Brown who is a native of Portland, Maine, began his wrestling career at Bonny Eagle High School in Buxton and continued perfecting his wrestling skills at Norwich University. Brown now lives in Florida where he trains with some of the world’s best athletes at the American Top Team Academy.
“We are excited to sponsor Mike for his upcoming title defense,” stated John DeSantis, President and General Manager of Bushmaster Firearms. “Mike’s dedication to his sport and fans really got our attention. He is an enthusiastic new shooter and we look forward to working with Mike as he focuses on developing his shooting skills.”
Brown has had an interest in the shooting sports for years but lacked a mentor until BFI Sales Representative, Jarrod McDevitt, had a chance to take Mike to the range with a few Bushmaster rifles. McDevitt stated, “Once Mike fired that first shot with our rifle, he was hooked! He is a fierce competitor in the cage and I can tell you first hand he absolutely is one on the firing line as well. Mike now enjoys getting out to the range when he needs to relax.” McDevitt continued, “I am thrilled that BFI is sponsoring Mike’s WEC title defense and that we can work with him on the range.”
“This relationship is going to be so much fun,” stated Brown. “I am excited about working with a Maine based company, especially a company as famous as Bushmaster Firearms!”
