PlayChip Announces Conor McGregor coach Owen Roddy as Brand Ambassador
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

The striking coach to the ‘Notorious’ MMA fighter joined the PlayChip team ahead of the highly anticipated bout against Khabib Nurmagomedov.

 

The PlayChip has continued its heavy role in sports sponsorships, with the Universal Gaming Token adding highly-regarded striking coach Owen Roddy, amongst other members of Team McGregor, to its team of ambassadors. The company is also negotiating an ambassador role with McGregor himself.

Roddy is a senior member of Conor McGregor’s coaching staff and a close personal friend to the former UFC Lightweight and Featherweight champion. The agreement with PlayChip was reached last week in the build-up to what some had billed as the fight of the century, a part Roddy played a heavy role in promoting via a series of blogs on his YouTube and Instagram page.

McGregor was defeated by submission in the fourth round of Saturday’s hugely anticipated bout against his Russian counterpart. The loss was only his fourth in MMA since turning pro. The fight ended in a highly controversial manner when Nurmagedov turned his attention to fellow PlayChip holder and McGregor teammate Dillion Danis, leaping the fence in an apparently unprovoked attack.

Teammates of the Russian followed suit, jumping into the ring and ambushing McGregor with a flurry of punches.

It was a disappointing end to what had otherwise been a fantastic spectacle in MMA fighting. Head of Blockchain for the PlayChip Luke Lombe was in the venue to witness one of the biggest events in UFC’s history.

“We were disappointed to see such behaviour after such an evening of mixed martial arts at its finest,” he said.

“While the post-fight actions cannot be condoned, it is pleasing to see Team McGregor and Owen turn their attentions towards a future rematch. Like the PlayChip with cryptocurrency, Owen and his team have had a huge role in promoting MMA to a record global audience and will continue to do so. We are excited to be a part of that journey.”

Roddy joins international cricketing icon Brett Lee in his ambassador role with PlayChip, the exclusive cryptocurrency of an online gaming ecosystem consisting of eight platforms and over 1,000,000 users. A number of exciting promotions are expected to be announced in the coming weeks, including the opportunity to train with the world-renowned coach.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Isle of Man-based corporate services provider Middleton Katz has today announced a deal to join the SMP Group of Companies, a global professional and financial services group.  The transaction has been approved by the Isle of Man Financial Services Authority.

Middleton Katz is a well-respected service provider on the Isle of Man, delivering corporate, tax, and accounting services to a broad range of clients. The company has built its reputation on professional expertise, personal service, and attention to detail.

Martin Katz, Principal of Middleton Katz, commented: ‘I am incredibly proud of the business and sense of community we have built; as a small, close-knit team, we have consistently punched above our weight in terms of the services we deliver. However, joining a larger group gives us the back-office support we need to extend and improve the services we offer clients much farther than we could alone. For us, SMP was a clear candidate from the beginning. We have dealt with them many times in the past and always been treated fairly and respectfully, so we already have strong relationships with many of their team.’

David Hudson, CEO of SMP Group, added: ‘Middleton Katz is an efficient and highly skilled company that is well-loved and respected by both clients and staff for its personable and reliable service and culture. We know they will integrate very naturally into our business, and we believe our shared history and ambitions will be hugely beneficial for their clients and staff.

‘Middleton Katz is our second acquisition since completion of the MBO on 14th June and represents another significant milestone for our Group.’

The deal has been undertaken with the support of Palatine Private Equity LLP, the UK mid-market private equity house that took SMP through its 2019 MBO, with additional debt funding from Apera Asset Management.
