UFC Strike Is Giving Away a Free Israel Adesanya Hype NFT
As UFC 276 quickly approaches, UFC Strike is giving away a free Israel Adesanya Hype NFT to new and existing users. Reserve yours here.
The deadline to reserve is Tuesday, Jul. 5 at 2 p.m. ET. There is a limit of one Izzy Hype NFT per account and it will be airdropped to participants on Wednesday, Jul. 6.
UFC Strike, which is similar to Dapper Labs' NBA Top Shot and NFL All Day platforms, previously gave away its "Shut Up!" Hype NFT featuring Zhang Weili and Joanna Jedrzejczyk. More than 20,500 users participated in that giveaway.
Hype NFTs are tradable on the UFC Strike marketplace, but they are different than standard UFC Strike Moment NFTs.
"Moment NFTs will still remain the number one focus for UFC Strike and will continue to feature the best Moments from the Octagon, be used to complete challenges, adhere to strict scarcity rules, and earn status within the UFC Strike ecosystem," the UFC Strike team wrote in its blog post. "Hype NFTs will only feature action from outside of the Octagon, will be primarily a collectible NFT, will not have set scarcity rules, will not be utilized to complete challenges, and will be primarily distributed as promotional items or rewards."
Adesanya, better known as The Last Stylebender or more simply Izzy, is the current UFC Middleweight Champion. On Saturday, Jul. 2, he fights Jared Cannonier for the belt in the main event of UFC 276.
