Jackson Wink MMA Academy to sell naming rights

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Jackson Wink MMA Academy, the mixed martial arts gym that counts UFC light heavyweight champion Jon "Bones" Jones, former UFC women's bantamweight champion Holly Holm and former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre among its notable fighters, will offer naming rights.

Gym co-owner Greg Jackson told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he and fellow owner Mike Winkeljohn will begin entertaining naming rights offers for their training facility in Albuquerque. Jackson said the naming rights could grant international exposure to a company, but he didn't give a price.

"It's something we've been talking about for a while now," Jackson said. "We are exploring our options, and we think we can give a partner a lot of exposure around the world because of our reputation."

Jackson Wink MMA Academy has been featured in several sports documentaries. Located just off Route 66 in downtown Albuquerque, the gym regularly attracts MMA fans and tourists who take selfies outside the facility. The gym recently opened an MMA-themed cafe.
