Case Study: Sherdog Fantasy

FightMetric designed, built, and operated a popular Pick ‘em game for one of the world’s most popular MMA sites. In addition to the standard selection of winner, method, and round, players had a limited number of ‘boosts’ to use wisely. Get a boost right and earn 200 extra points. Get it wrong and lose 50 points instead.

Case Study: MMA Salary Cap

FightMetric released the first ever stats-based fantasy game in 2011. Players get a budget, buy stakes in fighters at an event, and earn points based on their statistical performance. Players must pick a strategy when spending their budget, putting all of their money in just a few fighters or spreading it out across a wider set of fighters.
