NICKMERCS vs Scump battle of the champs

Twitch star Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff is bringing the MFAM Gauntlet to UFC Fight Week for the second year in a row, and this time he’s going up against Call of Duty legend Seth ‘Scump’ Abner.

During UFC Fight Week in July 2022, NICKMERCS went up against TimTheTatman in the “Battle of the Ages” MFAM Gauntlet event.

Kolcheff ended up taking home the trophy before members of FaZe and Complexity went up against each other in one of the most popular events of the year.

UFC X kicks off in July 2023, and NICKMERCS is bringing the event back — but this time he’s going head-to-head against Scump. Here’s everything you need to know about the event.
