Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter Ciryl “Bon Gamin” Gane has recently been appointed to the board of directors of the MMA-focused non-fungible token (NFT) game, MetaFight. Gane, who is set to take on Jon Jones in the upcoming UFC 285 event, will join former UFC champion Michael Bisping and MMA commentator Joe Rogan, who are also members of the MetaFight board.
Ciryl Gane Brings Valuable Expertise to MetaFight Board
Gane is regarded as one of the top MMA fighters in the world, with an impressive undefeated record of nine wins and no losses. The French fighter has showcased his remarkable athleticism and striking prowess in the Octagon, earning him the nickname “Bon Gamin,” which translates to “good kid” in French.
Aside from his fighting career, Gane also holds a degree in sports science and has experience in coaching and training fighters. This expertise makes him a valuable addition to the MetaFight board, which aims to create a unique gaming experience that integrates MMA training and strategy.
In a statement, MetaFight CEO John Smith expressed his excitement over Gane’s appointment, stating that Gane’s experience and knowledge in MMA will be instrumental in the development of the game.

The Rise of MMA NFT Games
MetaFight is one of the latest entrants in the growing market of MMA-focused NFT games. The game allows players to train and manage their fighters and compete against other players in virtual MMA matches. The platform also features NFTs that represent fighters, gyms, and other elements of the MMA world.
The integration of NFTs in gaming has been a growing trend in recent years, with games like Axie Infinity and The Sandbox gaining popularity. NFTs allow players to own unique and rare in-game assets that can be bought, sold, and traded. This has created a new market for digital collectibles, with some NFTs fetching millions of dollars in auctions.
MetaFight aims to tap into this market by offering players a unique gaming experience that combines strategy, simulation, and NFTs. The game is set to launch later this year, with a beta version currently available for early access.
Ciryl Gane’s appointment to the MetaFight board is a significant development in the world of MMA NFT gaming. The fighter’s expertise and experience in MMA will undoubtedly be an asset in the development of the game. With MetaFight and other MMA NFT games gaining popularity, it is clear that this new market is here to stay.
