FightMetric gives UFC fans insight and a chance to play fantasy sports

“More than anything, FightMetric has helped legitimize mixed martial arts as a sport, giving it statistical leaders that separate it from the public misconception of an unfettered brawl.”

Ultimate Fighting vs. Math: No Holds Barred

“[FightMetric] is a kind of experiment of its own — one that asks what happens when you set the powerful urge to watch lawless, explosive violence on a collision course with the blunt tyranny of math.”

FightMetric scores big by adding numbers to UFC matches

“Identifying fantasy as an application for statistics was easy…But figuring out how to translate the company’s raw data into a meaningful game was a challenge — particularly in a sport where speed matters more than volume.”

Charity: Strength in Numbers

FightMetric has created the Strength in Numbers campaign to promote charitable giving and support important causes. For every minute UFC fighters spend competing in the Octagon, FightMetric will donate $2.50 to the Fisher House Foundation.

In 2013, FightMetric’s Strength in Numbers donated over $20,000 to the Fisher House Foundation, a unique public-private partnership that supports the U.S. military and their families. Fisher House Foundation builds homes that provide free, temporary lodging for the families of military members and veterans receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers. These “homes away from home” enable family members to be close to loved ones at the most stressful time – during hospitalization for a combat-related injury, illness, or disease. We are proud to support them again this year.
