UFC Fighters Raise $20,070.75 for @FisherHouseFdtn in 2013 #StrengthInNumbers

FightMetric's inaugural Strength in Numbers campaign for 2013 concluded with UFC 168. We pledged to donate $5 for every minute UFC fighters spent competing in the Octagon. In total, 2013 saw 4,014 minutes, 9 seconds of Octagon time, a new UFC record for a single year. That means FightMetric will donate $20,070.75 to the Fisher House Foundation to benefit the families of wounded warriors. We look forward to continuing the campaign in 2014 to raise even more money for charity.

Here are some notes from a year's worth of UFC fights and how they affected the charity campaign:

The longest event of the year, UFC on FUEL 7, raised $843.25. That event featured 10 of 12 fights going at least 15 minutes and clocked in at a total of 168 minutes, 39 seconds.

The year's quickest event was Fight Night 32: Belfort vs. Henderson, which only raised $322.00. Seven of the 11 fights that night finished in the first round and only two went the distance. The whole thing was over in 64 minutes, 24 seconds.

Congratulations are due to the fighters we saw the most of in 2013. Their endurance in the Octagon meant hundreds of dollars raised for a worthy cause. The top 3 earners in 2013 were:

1. Mark Hunt raised $255.17 with 51 minutes, 2 seconds
2. Demetrious Johnson raised $250.85 with 50 minutes, 51 seconds
3. Georges St-Pierre raised $250.00 with an even 50 minutes

On the low end, Dave Herman had the shortest year in the UFC, raising $1.41 for 17 seconds of work. Rony Jason had the quickest combined two fights, with a total of two minutes, four seconds, resulting in $10.33. And Gabriel Gonzaga fought four times in 2013 and only managed 9 minutes, 2 seconds of fight time. He was one of only six fighters to compete four times this year and the only one to spend less than a half hour in the Octagon.

FightMetric announces Strength in Numbers program, donating $5 to charity for every minute of Octagon time

FightMetric is thrilled to announce our Strength in Numbers campaign to promote charitable giving and support important causes. For every minute UFC fighters spend competing in the Octagon, FightMetric will donate $5 to a worthy charitable organization.

For 2013, FightMetric’s Strength in Numbers program will benefit the Fisher House Foundation. Fisher House Foundation is best known for the network of comfort homes built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers nationwide and in Europe. Fisher Houses are beautiful homes, donated to the military and Department of Veterans Affairs. These homes enable family members to be close to a loved one at the most stressful time - during the hospitalization for a combat injury, illness or disease.

To date in 2013, UFC fighters have earned over $15,000 for the Fisher House Foundation with nine events left to go this year. FightMetric will keep track of total Octagon time in the graphic below to allow others to make pledges to an organization of their choice at whatever level they are able. A pledge of even one penny per minute will mean $40-$50 for a worthy cause.

Keep checking fightmetric.com for the running tally for each event and for the year. For more information about the Fisher House Foundation, visit fisherhouse.org.
