Release Date: November 2nd, 2017
NOVEMBER 2, 2017, SACRAMENTO – Today, Trifecta (https://www.trifectanutrition.com/), the nation’s largest all-organic meal delivery service, announced a new digital partnership with the world’s leading Mixed Martial Arts promotion UFC® (http://www.ufc.com/) for the highly anticipated UFC® 217: BISPING vs. ST-PIERRE Pay-Per-View event taking place at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, November 4, 2017.
Coinciding with this sponsorship, Trifecta is also proud to announce that UFC bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt and UFC women’s strawweight Paige VanZant are joining Trifecta’s stellar roster of world-class athletes. Garbrandt, currently ranked sixth in UFC’s pound-for-pound rankings, will face former UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw in the co-main event at UFC 217. After winning the bantamweight title at UFC 207, Garbrandt set his sights on Dillashaw, a former training partner at Team Alpha Male, in what has become one of the hottest MMA feuds in recent history. VanZant, a former model, is a popular female mixed martial artist who has appeared on television shows such as Dancing with the Stars and Chopped.
“The Trifecta team is extremely excited to get our partnership with UFC started with the sponsorship of UFC 217 showcasing Cody ‘No Love’ Garbrandt, our good friend and sponsored athlete,” said Greg Connolly, Trifecta’s Chief Executive Officer. “Cody has been training tirelessly for the fight, and having Trifecta handle his nutrition, along with his newly pregnant wife Danny’s nutrition, has really helped ease the burden on him during these last weeks of fight camp. We have big aspirations for the future for this partnership with UFC, and we are excited to kick it off with a bang at UFC 217.”
Leading into UFC 217, Trifecta is releasing a new video featuring Garbrandt during the final stages of his fight camp. Cody has continued to improve his all-around MMA game, fighting smarter and more efficiently than ever before, while keeping his nutrition on point throughout this fight camp.

Garbrandt’s coach and UFC Hall of Famer Urijah Faber recently became an investor and Managing Partner at Trifecta and has since launched the “Trifecta Podcast” with Trifecta’s Co-Founder and CEO, Greg
Connolly, that discusses the behind the scenes business elements of the nutrition and fitness industries.
“The one thing we can’t get more of in this world is time, and the most important thing in the world to me is my health. Trifecta was the perfect company for me to partner with to achieve both of those elements because I am a user of the service myself. I’m also a foodie and it’s important that the food tastes amazing, and Trifecta delivers on taste as well,” said Faber. “For my athletes at Team Alpha Male, the organic ready-to-eat meals by Trifecta are the perfect complement to a heavy regimen as an athlete.”
In addition to Cody Garbrandt and Paige VanZant, Trifecta boasts an impressive roster of world-class athletes and celebrities such as Oscar winning actor Octavia Spencer, Wonder Woman/Justice League actor and CrossFit star Brooke Ence, Team USA’s most popular weightlifter Mattie Rogers, Seattle Seahawks tight end Luke Willson and over 130 additional NFL players and other celebrity athletes. Earlier this year, Trifecta became a title sponsor of Team USA Weightlifting followed by a title sponsorship of the CrossFit Games, teaming up with CrossFit, Inc. to combat chronic disease.
Since launching in August 2015, Trifecta has become one of the fastest growing companies in the country and has grown over 46,000% month-over-month in the last 25 months.

Trifecta offers meals in four categories to meet everyone’s needs including Paleo, Vegan, Clean Eating and Classic Meals. Additionally, Trifecta has an A La Carte section that operates more like an online grocery store deli with fully prepared meats and vegetables you can order by weight.
