Stat Based Fantasy Sports Finally Enters the MMA World

Finally, MMA fans can experience what fantasy NFL fans have been experiencing for years with a groundbreaking stat based fantasy game. Unlike other MMA pick em’ games, MMA Xtreme Fantasy offers the ability to choose a team of fighters for one event, which will represent different statisitical categories and have them compete in a league for large cash prizes.

Up until now, there have only been variations of fantasy MMA games where you can pick a winner and how they win. By definition though, true fantasy games that are played for cash prizes can only be based on statistical results and not by actual outcomes. MMA Xtreme Fantasy is the first fantasy MMA site to offer such leagues.

There are two main reasons why a true fantasy MMA game took so long to develop. The first one was simply stats. Until recently, there have been no official stats taken for MMA fights. However, with there being official stats for high profile fights now, the capability of true fantasy leagues is a reality.

The second reason was how different MMA is compared to most other sports that fantasy leagues are played in. Most sports have a large pool of players to choose from and a consistent season. What Xtreme Fantasy Leagues.com has done was use the basic principles of how traditional fantasy sports have been played and flipped the concepts in order to maintain the traditional style of fantasy play, but fit it into the sport of MMA.

Instead of drafting a fighter for a certain position, team owners are drafting them for a certain statistical category. This is why MMA Xtreme Fantasy can offer 10+ teams per league with only a small group of fighters to choose from. Each league also only runs for one event, cutting down the commitment time and other issues that arise from not having a set season.

Owner, Mike Sixel believes this is what the sport needs to take it to, yet another level. “Even being a huge fight fan myself”, explained Sixel, “There are always at least one or two fights that are either boring or I simply don’t know the fighters. I didn’t have any investment in those fights, but now people will have that investment and excitement because of the true fantasy MMA experience.”
