(PRESS RELEASE) -- BetMGM, a leading sports betting and digital gaming company, announced today the signing of mixed martial arts journalist Ariel Helwani as a brand ambassador. Helwani, an award-winning media personality, will integrate BetMGM into his promotional content and also be featured in upcoming BetMGM marketing campaigns, social media content and promotions, as well as fan events.

"Sports betting has always been intertwined with the mixed martial arts world and now, with its availability in more states, I'm excited to work hand-in-hand with BetMGM to deliver unique insights into the sports betting world," said Helwani.
