If you’re a fantasy football, basketball or baseball fan and have longed for a similar game for MMA, you’re in luck. UFC’s official statistics provider, Fightmetric, is in beta testing of their own MMA fantasy game, MMA Salary Cap Challenge.
The game works just like other salary cap style fantasy games. Players are given a budget for each MMA event to spend on the fighters competing on the televised portion.
Users will score points based upon round as well as knockdowns, significant strikes, takedowns, submission attempts and passes. Sounds pretty awesome to be honest, it seems like a cool take on the fantasy MMA field (as it separates itself from MMArmy and MMATycoon – both of which SMS plays!). With so much growth in fantasy sports, this was a no-brainer.
