The upcoming MFAM Gauntlet has now expanded to include the fans in all the excitement. NICKMERCS and Scump will be hosting an esports tournament that will see fans going against each other and have a chance to compete alongside the gaming personalities for a grand prize.

The event will take place together with the combat sports’ largest fan festival, UFC X at the Las Vegas Convention Center. UFC X is a yearly event that provides fans the opportunity to meet up with UFC personalities and attend interactive exhibits, live stage programming, and expanded autograph sessions.

In the last MFAM Gauntlet during the UFC X 2022, NICKMERCS defeated TimtheTatman in the ‘Battle of the Ages’. The two gaming personalities went against each other in Apex Legends and EA SPORTS UFC 4.

Meanwhile, the other finalist will join NICKMERCS' team.

I can’t wait to get back in front of the crowd, play, and give one skilled fan a shot at $100,000. The Gauntlet at UFC X is going to be crazy!”
