OPRO Announces Partnership with Ulster Amateur MMA Association (UAMMA)
OPRO, the world’s most technically advanced mouthguard company, has signed a long-term partnership with the Ulster Amateur MMA Association (UAMMA) to become the “Official Mouthguard of the Ulster Amateur MMA Association (UAMMA)”.

In addition, OPRO will also support one of the federation clubs, ZKJ, in their unique ‘Fight to Unite Project’ in partnership with the NI Youth Forum supported by Comic Relief. The programme will use MMA alongside a youthwork approach to help young people gain a greater understanding of themselves and others, enabling them to make positive life decisions and counterbalance the risk of relapsing into negative behaviour.

Young MMA competitors will benefit from this Comic Relief- supported programme designed to increase resilience in young people whilst promoting confidence and understanding among the group and their families.

The Ulster Amateur MMA Association (UAMMA) joins OPRO’s ever-increasing ‘official mouthguard status’ federations and clubs which include the German MMA Federation, Italian Grappling and MMA Federation, England Boxing, England Rugby, New Zealand Rugby, Australia Rugby, the GAA and England Hockey, and confirms OPRO’s status as the world’s leading innovator and manufacturer of mouthguards.

Founder and owner of the OPROGROUP, Dr Anthony Lovat BDS. commented, ‘this is an exciting time for OPRO as we celebrate our 20th anniversary. We recognise the tremendous growth and popularity of MMA throughout the world and are delighted to be a part of it. As a dental surgeon, my team and I are passionate in our commitment to provide the best fitting, most comfortable mouthguards for fighters worldwide.

We feel honoured that Ulster Amateur MMA Association (UAMMA) has appointed our product as their official mouthguard and are delighted to support such a worthwhile programme whose aim is to support the next generation. With over 20 years’ experience in the development of mouthguard technology, this level of professional recognition represents a great achievement for us all.

Danny Corr of the Ulster Amateur MMA Association (UAMMA) added, ‘choosing OPRO to be our official mouthguard supplier was an obvious choice for us. Our young fighters need all of the help and support they can get and OPRO’s generosity in supplying the federation with mouthguards means that they will compete wearing the best-fitting, most comfortable mouthguards in the world.’
