With the new partnership between MMA Elite — a mixed-martials arts brand licensed by Ultimate Brand Management — and MusclePharm, the new supplement line will be released in the Las Vegas area first and will then spread nationwide.
The first two products to be featured are Perform Elite, a pre-workout product, and Recover Elite, a post-workout supplement, at a suggested retail price of $19.97 each.
MMA Elite powered by MusclePharm is a supplement line that will feature formulations from MusclePharm, a sports nutrition company that also is the official nutritional supplement provider of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
