Today I’m reviewing the Cage Hunter app that’s dubbed as the Uber of MMA matchmaking. It is suppose to connect fighters, managers, and matchmakers and make their life easier. Does it really do that? Read on (or watch the video below) and find out.
Through this app, fighters are able to receive fight offers from matchmakers.
Managers also receive offers from matchmakers and can find the right fights for their team of fighters.
Matchmakers (promoters) can build their fight card more easily with the app by choosing the right fighters for their events.
Before we proceed, in the spirit of total disclosure, I want to inform you that this is a paid review, but that it will be unbiased nevertheless. So if anything sucks, I’ll let you know.
Cage Hunter was founded by a Slovakian matchmaker Pavol Neruda, after being frustrated by the matchmaking process being so complicated and outdated. He decided to simplify it and this is how the app was born. Click here to read an interesting interview with him regarding the creation of this app.
Does it work as advertised? We’ll find out in this review.
It is available both in Google Play and App Store. Once you install it, you can either take the tour, log in or sign up if you haven’t already by entering in your email and password. Then you get to choose which one of these three are you? A fighter, manager or a matchmaker.
Here we will explore the benefits for all three categories:
A fighter has his own profile which he can connect with his manager. He is visible for MMA matchmakers, he can receive fight offers, fight all over the world and he can also connect his Sherdog profile.
A manager can manage his fighters easily, receive fight offers, build his own team, offer his fighters to the world, communicate directly with MMA promotions and get better offers for his fighters.
A matchmaker (promoter) can search fighters easily, send direct offers to fighters/managers, complete fight deals in few steps. Create an offer and get many responses. It simplifies matchmaking and saves time and money.
