The MFAM Gauntlet: NICKMERCS vs TimTheTatman results
Much like a traditional UFC event, the event consisted of two different ‘cards’ during the MFAM Gauntlet.
The MFAM Gauntlet consisted of NICKMERCS vs TimTheTatman, who “squared up” against each other in both Apex Legends and in EA SPORTS UFC 4. During the EA SPORTS UFC 4 round, the two were coached in real-time by UFC athletes Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson and Adrian Yanez.
The first card of the event centered around Apex Legends, consisting of six matches. The first five Apex games were scored at 100 points while the final would be worth double at 200 points.
TimTheTatman’s team won every Apex match, which ultimately netted him an incredible 700-0 lead over Team NICKMERCS going into the second round.
