LOS ANGELES — Mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter and former porn performer War Machine is being sponsored by adult company PUBA for his June 19 Bellator MMA Championship Tournament bout.

PUBA's sponsorship is their first for an MMA event, and the fighter’s first fight since Nov. 2011, according to the company.

"I am very happy and excited that PUBA has chosen to sponsor me for this fight," War Machine said. "I think we fit well together.When I was in the adult industry they were my favorite company to shoot for. They always had the hottest chicks on their sites. I hope all of my fans will use PUBA for all their XXX needs, I promise you won't be disappointed."

War Machine takes his 12-4 record into the ring against Blas Avena (8-6) for the welterweight feature fight on the card that will be broadcast on Spike TV live from the Winstar World Casino  in Thackerville, Oklahoma.

The sponsorship by PUBA is new territory for an MMA event,  the company noted.

"It is a natural fit for us," PUBA's co-owner Ben said. "MMA is the fastest growing sport in the world. The fans who love the intense action offered by MMA are the same people who dig what we are doing with our adult entertainment. We are MMA fans so it just seemed to be a perfect match for us. We know that War Machine will put on a great show and make us proud."

A Simi Valley, California native, War Machine has already picked up 12 MMA wins, seven by knock out with five submissions. In between bouts he has appeared in a dozen adult scenes including "Pretty Dirty (II)" for PUBA's Pornstar Empire line. "War Machine always brought great energy to his scenes," PUBA director Ivan said. "He fights with the same take-charge aggressiveness. We know he is going to have continued success."
