What People Are Saying About Us:
Brian Hemminger (@gotahemmi) of MMAMania.com ~ "Kountermove goes above and beyond the current MMA fantasy options. It forces you to take a deeper look at every match up, strategically pick the most viable upsets and not only pick who you think will win, but how badly. With real time updating of statistics and points, Kountermove kept me on my toes until the final fight of the night."
