Kountermove's Fantasy MMA Scoring
3 STEPS TO UNDERSTAND SCORING:
1) Official stats - After a match, FightMetric scores Significant Strikes Landed, Takedowns/Reversals, Submission Attempts, Knockdowns, Dominant Positions, and Rounds Won, we then convert this statistical performance into points that are compiled and totaled according to the roster of fighters that makes up your fantasy team. Here is a sample scoring outcome from Cain Velasqueze from UFC 166:
2) Fantasy Scoring - Kountermove determines a fighter’s fantasy score as follows:
First Round Win (by knockout, submission, DQ, or other)
Second Round Win (by knockout, submission, DQ, or other)
Third round Win (by knockout, submission, DQ, or other)
Rounds won (win-by-decision fights only, two out of three judges required)
10 points each
Significant Strikes Landed
.5 points each
2 points each
3 points each
3 points each
2 points each
* Round points are scored based on the totality of the judges' scores rather than individual rounds.
* A "No Contest" results in both fighters receiving no win/decision bonus.
Once the card begins and your picks have fought, you can hover over a fighters name to see the total points scored in their bout.
Like other fantasy sites, Kountermove awards zero points to players who draft a fighter who scratches or an entire fight that scratches because of injury, illness, or any other reasons. Decisions and points are final in the cage - scoring is based only on the final call, during the event, in the cage.
3) Prize Pool Distribution & Winnings - The overall prize pool is pre-determined for each game. The prize pool amount is noted on the homepage where you select a game to play. Just hover your cursor over the prize pool amount on the homepage or bottom left draft page to see how the prize pool is dispersed. In the event of a tie, the prize for that place is divided evenly between the tied players.
