Kountermove’s fantasy MMA games work very similar to fantasy
football. Members draft a team of fighters and compete with that
team against other Kountermove players in their league. Members
have a $25,000 “salary cap” when drafting their fantasy team of
fighters, each fighter has a “salary” designated by Kountermove.
Members choose from free or entry fee games of varying sizes.
Winners and losers are then determined by fantasy points earned
based on each fighter’s performance – strikes landed, submission
attempts, knockdowns, dominant positions, rounds won, and knockout
or submission bonuses.
After each event, Kountermove updates game results by listing the
points members received for that event, the rankings, and prize
pool winners. All entry fees are added into a prize pool that is
divided among the league’s winners at the end of the game. Visit

About ‘It Ain’t Chemo’:
It Ain’t Chemo™ is a boots on the ground non-profit (applied for)
organization in Las Vegas, Nevada that directly supplies patients
with comfort items, advice and emotional support. Launched in
January 2010 by Kevin Hoyt, cancer survivor and Las Vegas resident,
the idea for It Ain´t Chemo™ came about in 2002 when after a very
bad day Hoyt said, "Well, it ain't chemo." As a member of the fire
service for more than 20 years, including four years in the United
States Air Force, Hoyt brings his firefighting heritage into play
by going directly to the people who are suffering. While holding no
contempt for organizations that commit funds to research, Team It
Ain´t Chemo™ is a hands-on response-type of organization.
Operating completely anonymously for the past four years, Hoyt
personally visits cancer patients who are currently undergoing
chemotherapy, radiation therapy or who are confined to their homes.
With the permission of their doctors, Hoyt brings them what he now
calls IAC™ Packs containing blankets vitamins, books, movies, tips
and advice on dealing with cancer treatment side effects. Hoyt also
provides patients with his own personal contact information to let
them know that he will be there if they need him, any time...day or
Couture's "It Ain't Chemo" Charity Tourney.
