UFC Flyweight Brandon Moreno made his ‘This is SportsCenter’ commercial debut in “Elevator.” The spot debuted across ESPN platforms ahead of his fight on Feb. 24 during UFC Fight Night: Moreno vs. Royval 2 on ESPN+ and ESPN Deportes.

“Elevator” was developed with ESPN’s U.S. Hispanic audience at the forefront. With spots in both English and Spanish, ESPN wanted to serve fans globally. “Elevator” is also airing across ESPN platforms internationally.

The Spanish-language version includes SportsCenter anchor Jorge Eduardo Sánchez and ESPN Deportes Commentator Mauricio Pedroza, as well as SportsCenter anchor Nicole Briscoe who is featured within the English-language spot.

“Early mornings are part of the job here at ESPN. Whether it’s your team hyping you up or a cup of coffee, we all have to find a way to bring the energy,” said Seth Ader, Vice President of Brand Marketing at ESPN. “But more importantly, this spot is an example of how This is SportsCenter serves as an amazing platform to show the diversity of athletes and backgrounds in the sports universe.”

“Elevator” was developed in collaboration with Arts & Letters Creative Co.
