Armadillo Studios partners with UFC’s Amanda Nunes


Known as ‘The Lioness’, the Brazilian MMA professional and current UFC Featherweight Champion Amanda Nunes has teamed up with Miami-based slots developer Armadillo Studios to develop a dedicated game, raise the studio’s US and global profile and, according to Armadillo’s CEO, Razvan Haiduc, “provide some much-needed gender balance to the casino vertical.”

Nunes was the first woman ever to become a two-division UFC champion and only the third fighter in UFC’s history to hold titles in two weight classes simultaneously. And she is clearly excited by this project from the young studio: “I am thrilled to be involved in this awesome project,” she said. Having a brand-new slot title made from scratch in my image by a US game studio is an exciting adventure and rare opportunity. I hope that sports fans all over the world will be just as excited as I am and curious enough to take it for a spin!”

Razvan Haiduc added: “As a fan of MMA myself, I am very excited to be working with Amanda. Her global presence is huge, and we are ready to use it. Armadillo Studios has ambitious plans for 2022 and our tie with Amanda is the first step in the right direction. This branded game is set to hit the market in the second half of 2022, and we are confident it will be a massive success.”
