About the DraftKings UFC collection

According to a press release, the initial UFC NFTs will drop as DraftKings’ “Heatwave Collection”. NFTs will be based on the UFC’s summer schedule. It will start with the July 2nd match between Israel Adesanya & Jared Cannonier.

All in all, the partnership gives DraftKings access to fighter IP from over 500 different active UFC athletes. NFT holders will also receive access to daily fantasy contests and other perks. Fans can also participate in these contests to win cash and custom merchandise.

“UFC has been a tremendous collaborator over the years,” said Beth Beiriger, SVP of Product Operations for DraftKings Marketplace. “Fight fans are already among the most engaged audiences, and we see these immersive technologies as bolstering the unique sports entertainment ecosystem we provide for consumers while also rewarding their undeniable passion.”

Currently, DraftKings is developing the exclusive Reignmakers UFC game. It will feature features such as achievements, leaderboards, level-ups and missions once it is launched.

A digital sports entertainment and gaming company, DraftKings’ products range from daily fantasy to regulated gaming and digital media. Launched in 2012, the company offers sports betting and gaming technologies. Later, in 2021, the company launched DraftKings Marketplace, a digital collectibles marketplace for curated NFT drops.
