Quepasa.com and Ultimate Fighting Championship® Join Forces

Latino Social Network Set to Bring the Excitement of the UFC® to Its 9+ Million Members

WEST PALM BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - February 18, 2010) -   Quepasa Corporation (OTCBB: QPSA), owner of Quepasa.com, a Latino online social network, proudly announces its new dynamic feature: an online community devoted to the Ultimate Fighting Championship® (UFC®), the fastest growing sports organization in history, and an exciting contest to its 9+ million members, giving them a chance to be a part of the most thrilling live event in the world.

"The UFC is appealing to our Quepasa members, and our new online community will give the fans a versatile new tool that will enhance their enjoyment," said John C. Abbott, CEO of Quepasa. "The online community, which will be in English, Spanish and Portuguese, is designed to give fans access to UFC Live Events, videos, images and news articles. The enthusiastic fans will be able to share messages and engage in meaningful discussions with other likeminded fans." 

The new online community which will debut in early March 2010 will feature a UFC-themed contest set to run for six weeks. The contest, titled "Why I Watch" will see contestants design an entry incorporating their favorite UFC videos and compose a statement explaining why they watch the UFC. The contest will employ widgets that allow the sharing of the UFC brand message across all social media platforms. Contestants will be eligible for prizes depending on how successful their entry creates a "buzz" on both Quepasa and the social web as a whole. The contest is aimed at Quepasa users and UFC fans in the United States, Mexico and Brazil.
