MusclePharm® Corporation (OTCBB:MSLP)

MusclePharm's top management has extensive experience in the sports world and has harnessed this drive and focus into building a business to benefit its customers and help Fuel The Athlete Inside™. Headquartered in Denver, Colorado, the company is a fast-growing developer and manufacturer of safe, scientifically approved nutritional supplements that are free of banned substances and tested by athletes. They are designed to help athletes, bodybuilders, weightlifters and fitness enthusiasts improve their performance. Each and every MusclePharm product is the end result of an advanced six-stage research and testing protocol involving the expertise of top nutrition scientists. In addition, the products have been field-tested by more than 100 elite professional athletes from the NFL, MMA, MLB and elsewhere. To date, the company has developed eight products: ASSAULT®, BATTLE FUEL®, BULLET PROOF®, COMBAT POWDER®, RECON®, SHRED MATRIX®, and MUSCLEGEL®. Two additional products are due in stores in 2010. MusclePharm products offer up to twice as much of the active ingredients per serving as competing products and incorporate a proprietary mix of ingredients not available elsewhere, such as Suma root– the “Russian SecretSuma is a natural, performance-boosting, strength-and muscle-building herbal derivative that has been used for years by top Russian athletes.

If you go back to 1984, Nike (NYSE:NKE) was trading as low as $0.41 per share. It was NKE's association with Michael Jordan that propelled NKE into becoming a household name. NKE today trades for $73.64 a gain of 17,860% over the past 26 years. Anderson Silva is the Michael Jordan of MMA! MusclePharm is quickly becoming a household name in MMA circles. I doubt MSLP will ever become as big as NKE, but I certainly believe MSLP has astronomical upside potential at its current price of $0.75!

MusclePharm® Corporation, one of the fastest growing nutritional supplement companies in the United States with a proprietary formulation used in eight performance products, reported today that MusclePharm athlete and NFL star Joey Porter will wear MusclePharm's new clothing line during a 17-episode weekly series spanning the 2010 NFL season on NFL Network.

The new MusclePharm-branded hats and shirts will be unveiled to the retail market in the coming weeks and Porter's notoriety in the world's most popular sport presents an ideal platform to create exposure for the product line.

Consistently recognized as one of the most recognizable faces in the NFL thanks to his outgoing nature, Porter will be wearing MusclePharm apparel in all 17 episodes of a weekly NFL Network series that focuses on the upcoming NFL season.

The Arizona Cardinals and Super Bowl-winning linebacker is a 4-time Pro Bowler and was voted one of the top defensive players of the last decade. Porter has been an important MusclePharm spokesman due to his relentless playing style, tireless work ethic and outspoken personality, making this project a perfect way to reveal the new MusclePharm-branded apparel.

“At MusclePharm, we find creative ways to make our brand stand out to multiple audiences and in multiple formats to reach all consumers,” said Cory Gregory, MusclePharm's President. “We currently have focused on brand awareness in marketing in the UFC, NFL, MLB and in action sports markets. We believe we are a company that crosses over to multiple demographics and helps all of these athletes in these different sports, while also appealing to the normal, everyday athlete.”

MusclePharm products are currently available in 1,200 of the top General Nutrition Centers (GNC) in the United States, as well as Vitamin Shop. MusclePharm's award-winning products — Assault®, Battle Fuel®, Bullet Proof®, Combat Powder®, Recon® and Shred Matrix®—are also available online at gnc.com, bodybuilding.com, amazon.com and many other locations.
