Win a UFC 285 Experience with MMA Lesson from UFC Fighter through Reignmakers UFC

At UFC 283, Reignmakers UFC will introduce the concept of portfolio-gated contests. DraftKings expects to offer these types of contests from time to time, where users must hold a specific allotment of fighter game cards within their portfolio to be eligible to join these special contests.

The first portfolio-gated contest is all about Brazil. To enter the portfolio-gated contest at UFC 283, users will need to hold five (5) fighter game cards of fighters from Brazil. For the UFC 283 contest, the five (5) fighter game cards can be of any rarity tier. Holding these fighters at time of contest entry will earn users one (1) entry to the portfolio-gated contest at UFC 283. Note: UFC 283’s portfolio-gated contest will run at the CORE rarity tier, but that will not necessarily be the case for future portfolio-gated contests.

Now, let’s talk about the grand prize:

The user who wins the portfolio-gated contest at UFC 283 will win a full VIP Experience for two to UFC 285 that includes an hour-long MMA training session with a UFC fighter.

Reignmakers Divisional Round Contest Recap

The Divisional Round concluded Sunday with a two-game Reignmakers slate. The key to winning on Saturday was having multiple Eagles and Travis Kelce, who scored 10 points more than anyone else on the entire weekend. On Sunday, it was necessary to have a Bengals stack with CeeDee Lamb.

With both slates featuring only two games, it wasn’t hard to roster the perfect lineup. In fact, the Sunday CORE contest saw the top seven finishers roster the perfect lineup, while the Saturday winner solo-shipped with it.

Amongst the four SuperStars left, only Josh Allen was eliminated over the weekend, leaving Jalen Hurts, Patrick Mahomes and Christian McCaffrey to pick from.
