“Whatever it takes.”
This is the battle cry of the remaining Marvel superheroes in the highly-anticipated movie, Avengers: Endgame.
The trailer for the sequel to the 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War landed last March 14 and has gained millions of views on social media hours after its released.
True enough, this upcoming film will be a guaranteed blockbuster and there is no stopping it from dominating the box office this April.
In a bid to ride on the Avengers: Endgame’s hype train, the world’s most prestigious mixed martial arts organization, the Ultimate Fighting Championship, has decided to use the movie as its reference for its pay-per-view offering next month.
Last December, the UFC also turned to the movie’s first teaser to promote the second instalment to the Jon Jones vs Alexander Gustafsson rivalry at UFC 232.
Capitalizing on the film’s hype for the second time, the Nevada-based promotion released the promo for UFC 236 with the Avengers: Endgame theme.

The UFC will head to Atlanta, Georgia next month for its third pay-per-view event this year.
UFC 236 is slated to take place at the State Fram Arena on April 13, with the rematch between featherweight champion Max Holloway and lightweight contender Dustin Poirier headlining the equally-stacked fight card.
Holloway will make his highly-awaited move to the 155-pound division in an attempt to secure the interim lightweight strap, with the division’s current champ, Khabib Nurmagomedov, currently serving a lengthy suspension.
After sweeping the last five outings, rising star Israel Adesanya will lock horns with Kelvin Gastelum for the interim middleweight title as the reigning champion, Robert Whittaker, is sitting out to recover from an injury.
Check out the Avengers: Endgame-inspired promo for the UFC 236 in the video below.

Holloway, who has been on a tear since losing to Conor McGregor six years ago, was compared to Iron Man for his incredible rise to stardom, winning thirteen consecutive fights.
Adesanya’s epic clash with MMA legend Anderson Silva was also featured in the promo video along with the line “The world has changed. None of us can go back,” which resembles the Kiwi’s evolution from a top prospect to a legit title contender.
