LAS VEGAS, NV, March 26, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The nationally-televised WSOF 9 title fight between Steve Carl and Rousimar Palhares live on NBC Sports Network will answer the question, "Who is the better fighter?" For the first time ever on March 29, 2014, at 6:00pm PST, the WSOF event will also reveal, "Who is the smarter MMA fan?" During the fight, the fan that plays and racks up the most points will win a new Ducati Monster 696 valued at nearly $10,000.
While stars such as Marlon Moraes, Rousimar Palhares and Iraqi war veterans, Shane Kruchten and Mike Corey compete in the cage, fans watching the event live at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino or on television at home, can collide mano y mano in a battle of wits for cash, prizes and a Ducati Monster 696 motorcycle. The popular "Champions Challenge" games - where fans intellectually spar against each other one-on-one during live events by trying to predict, for instance, "Which fighter will land the most leg kicks?" or "Which fighter will win?" - can be played during WSOF 9, 10 and 11 live events thanks to a recent partnership between the skyrocketing Las Vegas-based pro fight league and SHOUT, the leader in real time fan engagement.
"After the fights, somebody will be riding home on a brand new Ducati," said SHOUT CEO, Darl McBride. "SHOUT is partnering with World Series of Fighting to bring a new twist to cage-fighting. Instead of just wondering, 'Which fighter will win tonight?' fans will be asking themselves, 'How big of a prize can I win tonight? Why just be a fan or a spectator? Why not be a player or a participant?' Think of it as a series of intellectual cage matches for fans. We think SHOUT and World Series of Fighting are very synergistic. Why should fighters be the only winners? Why can't the fans win, too?"
"SHOUT is the leader in engaging and entertaining sports fans with trivia and one-on-one competitions so they're a great fit for World Series of Fighting and our fast-growing international expansion," said WSOF President, Ray Sefo. "MMA fans are the most rabid and loyal fans in the world and this free application offers one more tool for fans to interact and win valuable prizes while watching our world-class athletes fight during live broadcasts."
SHOUT's real-time challenges have engaged and entertained fans competing against each other during the Super Bowl, soccer, NFL, NBA and MLB games, as well as the Daytona 500, Oscars, Grammys and reality shows like "The Bachelor." Signing up and competing in SHOUT fan competitions is free and fast. SHOUT can be downloaded by visiting the Apple or Android stores (using search word: "SHOUT").
