LAS VEGAS (June 15, 2011)— XYIENCE, makers of Xenergy, the official energy drink of the UFC®, is celebrating the victories of its team athletes Mark Munoz, Sam Stout, and Krzysztof Soszynski at UFC 131® Dos Santos vs. Carwin on Saturday, June 11 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver. The three athletes are recent additions to XYIENCE’s team of professional mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters, and this event was the first time that each entered the octagon while representing XYIENCE.
“We select our brand ambassadors for a variety of reasons, and at UFC 131 our three athletes demonstrated the outcome of tireless dedication to one’s craft,” says Jessica Hughes, who oversees XYIENCE’s brand ambassador program. The three fighters signed with XYIENCE to represent Xenergy through 2012.
Further adding to the excitement, Stout, a lightweight contender, earned “Knockout of the Night” honors from the UFC for his first round knockout of MMA veteran Yves Edwards.
In Munoz’s middleweight bout against Demian Maia, both fighters showcased the versatility in their skills. However, Munoz, an acclaimed collegiate wrestler and former NCAA Division 1 National Champion, proved his exceptional skills in wrestling and boxing, along with his infamous ground-and-pound technique by securing a victory by decision over Maia.
Veteran light heavyweight Krzysztof Soszynski, who started in MMA after a stint as a professional wrestler, faced Mike “The Master of Disaster” Massenzio. During this back-and-forth bout, Soszynski was able to take the win unanimous decision.
“XYIENCE is extremely proud of Mark, Sam and Krzysztof and we congratulate the athletes and their coaches,” says John Lennon, XYIENCE’s president. “We understand the sacrifices that are made in the months leading up to a fight, and want to thank the fighters’ families for their support during that time.”
