Do you think you are good at fight analysis? Do you think you have what it takes to take out Pro MMA Now’s best fight analysts? Do you want a chance to win REAL money? If so, join the UFC 148 Pro MMA Now “Smack Down” Kountermove tournament!
Here’s the lowdown on everything. You may have heard of Kountermove before as it’s basically a version of Fantasy MMA with the real chance of winning REAL money. It all depends on how good you are at analyzing fight matchups and predicting how each fight will go. You have a salary cap of 25,000 dollars(these are fake dollars) in which you draft 5 fighters for each event. Each fighter has a dollar value(favorites to win the fights usually have higher dollar values). The five fighters you select can’t go over the 25,000 salary cap.
Here’s how to play….
1) Pick a Game: You will simultaneously select (1) the “Entry Fee”, from a choice of free games or various cash games, and (2) the size of the opponent pool you wish to play in.
2) Draft Your Team of Fighters: You then draft a team of 5 fighters, under a salary cap of $25,000 in fake money. You may edit your team of fighters at any time right up until the first preliminary bout of the event begins.
3) Score points and win cash (or play for free!): Kountermove determines a fighter’s fantasy score as follows. A first-round win (by knockout, submission, DQ, or other) earns 100 points, second-round win earns 75 points, and third, fourth, or fifth-round wins, again by knockout, submission, DQ, or other, earn 50 points. Rounds won (win-by-decision fights only, two out of three judges required) earn 10 points each.
In addition, fighters earn fantasy points for Significant Strikes Landed (.5 points each), Takedowns (2 points each), Submission Attempts (3 points each), Knockdowns (3 points each), and Dominant Positions (2 points each). Like other fantasy sites, Kountermove awards zero points to players who draft a fighter who scratches or an entire fight that scratches because of injury, illness, or any other reasons. Decisions and points are final in the cage – scoring is based only on the final call, during the event, in the cage.
