The Head Hunter Joins the WheyUP Team
Mixed Martial Arts fighter Paul Buentello will endorse new energy drink that is packed with whey protein
Chandler, Ariz. -- June 7, 2007 -- Paul Buentello, a world-class Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter has joined the WheyUP team. Buentello, nicknamed "The Head Hunter" for his aggressive style, will endorse WheyUP for his upcoming bout on June 22 against Carter Williams (3-1-0 in MMA). The fight is scheduled to air live on Showtime pay-per-view. The Buentello-Williams match is on the undercard of the Ken Shamrock-Phil Baroni championship bout.
WheyUP, the original protein drink with energy, combines 22 grams of whey protein with an energy formula in a sugar-free, non-carbonated beverage. It represents a breakthrough in the sports energy drink market.
"WheyUP is a great product that I will use while training for my upcoming fight," said Buentello, a 33-year-old native of Amarillo, Texas . "WheyUP provides the energy that I need for an extreme workout, but it also has the protein and amino acids to help my body recover. While training for a fight, my body tends to get sore and muscles are broken down. The protein in WheyUP helps to repair those muscles."
Buentello (22-9-0 in MMA) now fights for the Strikeforce Fighting Championship organization. In his debut in the UFC (UFC 51) in 2005, Buentello knocked out Justin Eilers in 3:34 of the first round. His next fight (UFC 52), Buentello took out UFC veteran Kevin "The Shaman"" Jordan with a guillotine choke submission at 4:00 of the first round. At UFC 55, he lost a title shot against UFC Heavyweight Champion Andrei "The Pitbull" Arlovski.
WheyUP is targeted toward health-conscience individuals and fitness enthusiasts. It is ideal for low-fat and low-carb diets, exercise programs, weight-training programs, athletic activities, and as part of a healthy, active lifestyle. The fitness industry recommends consuming a minimum of 20g of whey protein prior to working out. With WheyUP, getting energized and adding healthy protein to a diet has never been easier.
WheyUP's inventor and founder, Arizona-based entrepreneur Erik Rothchild, developed the product through his own personal nutritional supplementation.
