LOS ANGELES, May 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- HashAtIt.com is set to sponsor former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Tito Ortiz in his first fight since July 2012, in the inaugural Bellator pay-per-view, scheduled for May 17, 2014.
Officially launching last week, HashAtIt.com is the first social media search engine that gives users a way to gather information on any metadata tags (#hashtags) from popular social networks such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest, collecting all the results in one place.
Founded by Laurie Paolone, HashAtIt.com's beta-testing phase ended last month, following a successful sponsorship campaign with #1 Female MMA Fighter Worldwide, Cris Cyborg, where fans of the sport were able to track the social conversation under the tag #criscyborg leading up to and during the Lions Fight event.
Paolone herself is an avid participant of the sport, hence her interest in sponsoring Tito Ortiz for his highly anticipated "come-back" fight, which will take place at the Landers Center in South Haven, Mississippi. Having studied mixed martial arts for the past 14 years, Paolone still trains today, 3-4 times a week. "I used to compete and have over 6 fights to my name," said Paolone. "I've worked and trained with the best trainers in MMA and really love this community, thus am proud to support it, whether it's through sponsoring fighters, sparring/training with them, or just watching them fight."
With the HashAtIt.com sponsorship, users of the social search engine can expect live posts during the pay-per-view fight by going directly to HashAtIt.com/titoortiz, or by following the hashtags #titoortiz, #bellator120 and #MMA at HashAtIt.com. Compatible with multiple language input options, fans can collect all relevant posts and status updates worldwide, as-it-happens, in real time with its user-friendly interface and customizable hashtag boards, allowing viewers everywhere to chime in on the conversation.
