MetaFight is the first MMA game that puts you in charge of real-world fighters in the form of collectible NFTs.
The game allows you to collect real-world MMA fighters, build teams and challenge other players — inviting you to run your own gym, and with your strategic prowess, guide your fighters to triumph and claim the title of the world’s best MMA manager. Apart from your Starter Cards, every card is a unique, tradable, and sellable NFT.
The platform recently launched its Alpha and saw more than 35,000 games played in the first two hours. The game will be available on mobile and desktop browsers.
MetaFight also has a friendship with some of the world’s leading MMA gyms, including MMA Factory, France’s largest MMA gym and home to UFC Heavyweight Champion, Francis Ngannou and MetaFight’s own Ciryl Gane. It will be announcing further partnerships with great fighters in the due course.
MMA fans and sports enthusiasts can expect to see exclusive Ciryl Gane special collectibles on the MetaFight platform soon. Don’t forget to tune in to Gane’s much-anticipated fight with Jon Jones at UFC 285 this weekend for the vacant heavyweight title.
Giving Back To MMA Fighters
MetaFight offers athletes who join the platform a compensation model in which they receive a share of the proceeds from the sale of their collectible cards. In a sport like MMA — where revenues are poorly distributed — this can have a major impact on the careers of young rookies who often do not even earn the minimum wage as professional athletes.
“I’ve always been interested in exploring new technologies related to sports, and MetaFight particularly caught my eye when I discovered how its payment model could support athletes in pursuing their sporting passions,” shared Gane. “Joining the MetaFight board and contributing to its growth is an exciting opportunity for me.”
“Julia Mahé-Emsallem, the CEO of MetaFight, stated, “Ciryl is a highly valuable addition to our team. With his in-depth knowledge of the sport and experience as an MMA world champion, he will be instrumental in helping us improve our platform and establish MetaFight as a top provider of digital collectible cards for sports fans. Having him on our board will also enable us to gain a better understanding of the challenges faced by top champions and make the game as authentic as possible.”
Speaking on the game more generally, CEO Julia Mahé-Emsallem said: “MetaFight’s goal is to support the growth of MMA worldwide by helping fighters and industry professionals like coaches, agents, and organizations. By launching Alpha, we’re progressing towards our goal and providing an opportunity for all members of the MMA community to benefit from our platform and contribute to the growth of the sport.”

As per the roadmap, MetaFight has some exciting plans for 2023. One of these plans is our PVP mode, which allows users to battle their friends and compete for a spot on the leaderboard, ranking the top players.
Players can join leagues and compete against other players, with their rewards and ranking determined by their performance in the league. MetaFight is the initial NFT and metaverse game to implement this concept.
MetaFight solves many problems of NFT games, such as high transaction fees, slow confirmation times, and security concerns. The game is built on Immutable X, a layer-2 scaling solution built on top of the Ethereum blockchain, designed to enable fast and secure trading of non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
