These rewards will be in addition to the traditional “Fight of the Night” and “Performance” bonuses awarded to mixed martial arts athletes.
How can you vote?
During each fight, voting for the “Fan Bonus of the Night” will take place on Crypto.com/FanBonus and will be open to all users worldwide.
Each fan has three votes per Pay-Per-View (PPV) and will be able to choose two fighters in each fight.
Voting will open at the start of the Pay-Per-View prelims and will end one hour after the conclusion of the event.
The “Fan Bonus of the Night” is an innovative rewards method between the UFC and Crypto.com.
In November 2021, UFC and Crypto.com included a multi-year licensing agreement to issue a series of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT) related to mixed martial arts in which athletes will receive 50% of the proceeds from the sales of digital assets.
Praise for the UFC
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White assured that Crypto.com became one of the sport’s best partners in less than a year.
“This new ‘Fan Bonus of the Night’ is an incredible way to get fans more involved in our events while rewarding fighters for their incredible performances,” White said.
For his part, Crypto.com chief marketing officer Steven Kalifowitz said he was excited about this agreement between the company he represents and the UFC.
“We are challenged to build even more innovative and engaging experiences as our partnership continues.”
In July 2021, the UFC became one of the first sports brands to integrate cryptocurrency-based promotions after signing a $175 million sponsorship deal with Crypto.com.
