When MMA fighter Aaron Pico enters the ring this weekend, he will be doing so with the fans of World of Tanks Blitz, Wargaming's mobile game based on the WoT franchise. He will be wearing specially branded shorts "featuring the iconic Blitz shield". According to Pico, the partnership is fitting since "[his] great grandpa was a tanker" and that, after playing the game, he's 'hooked'.
“Aaron is a young, driven competitor who blends his skill and smarts to win. He truly is unbreakable, and perfectly fits the World of Tanks Blitz player profile," states Thaine Lyman, General Manager, Wargaming Mobile. “We immediately became fans of his style, his spirit, and how he carries himself in the cage. When we then heard him speak about how he approaches his craft, we knew that he was the perfect fit for our game."
