Upcoming Months Bring More Offerings

Paul Asencio, UFC Senior Vice President, Global Partnerships, made it clear that the new offerings are more than thrilling to all parties involved. Getting the best of both worlds is what poker players could do, but this collaboration does not rely on chance for its success.
