Gravity Jack’s Jen Richey Talks Fighter Bonus App, Crowdsourced MMA payouts at CES in Las Vegas
Last month a few of our team members headed to Las Vegas for the ‘Holy Grail’ of tech –– CES (Consumer Electronics Show). While there, we spoke with NBC’s News 3 Las Vegas (KSNV), during their sports segment. We know what you’re thinking. “What do sports have to do with CES––let alone Gravity Jack?” The answer boils down to two simple words: Fighter Bonus.
Fighter Bonus is one of our most recently developed apps, available for iOS and Android. Founded by professional MMA fighter and now coach, Joel Thomas, Fighter Bonus allows users to ‘control the cage’ via crowdsourced bounties during a UFC fight.
Users can place in-app ‘FightBucks’ towards the jackpots for specific moves and outcomes that they want to see happen during a fight. For example, if a user wants to see Ronda Rousey taken out by an armbar, they may place five FightBucks on that outcome. If her opponent achieves it, they get the major, crowd-sourced payday––direct from FighterBonus!
