UFC Unveils New Logo and Brand Identity

The newly designed logo architecture and brand signatures, which include an ownable tab system utilised across all UFC properties, will be made prominent in marketing and promotional materials serving to distinguish Pay-Per-View events from broadcast and those exclusive to UFCFIGHTPASS.com.
“UFC has and always will be true to its DNA,” UFC chief global brand officer Garry Cook said. “We didn’t set out to reinvent ourselves, we looked at ways to build on our solid foundation and better deliver on a broad range of storytelling components, providing more context and meaning, and further enhancing the viewing experience for our fans.”
