How It Works

On Wednesday, December, 13, 2023 at 12 PM PT, fans will visit the UFC Strike Now website to choose the athletes they think will win. If the fan's selected athlete wins, the collectible will be upgraded to include exclusive video footage celebrating the victory. If the fan's selected athlete is defeated, the collectible will be updated to include only basic upgrades. Collectibles are available at purchase, and upgrades happen shortly following the event. Collectors have until 5PM PT on Saturday, December 16, 2023 to make your picks. Once a card submission is made, the picks are locked in for the week. So make sure to answer all the questions to maximize your potential points! Collectors will still be able to use their Dapper wallet for purchase but must create a UFC Strike account to participate in UFC Strike Now.
