UFC 283 marks the first Pay-Per-View event of Reignmakers UFC with expanded contest types for users to choose from. On January 21, 2023, users will be able to choose from CORE, RARE, ELITE, LEGENDARY and REIGNMAKER tier contests, which will hold true for all UFC Pay-Per-View events moving forward.
Moving forward, all Pay-Per-View Event Packs will come in one SKU. Unlike UFC 281 and UFC 282 Event Packs, 2023 Pay-Per-View packs will include five (5) Fighter Game Cards with no rarity guarantees. The pack pool will include all participating fighters in the event and cards of all rarities. Each of the fighters scheduled to fight at UFC 283 will be included in the pack pool with a supply of 1200 CORE tier Fighter Game Cards, 300 RARE tier Fighter Game Cards, 75 ELITE tier Fighter Game Cards, 15 LEGENDARY tier Fighter Game Cards and 1 REIGNMAKER tier player card.
This week, DraftKings Reignmakers is offering up $125,000 in total prizes between its five tiers of contests: CORE, RARE, ELITE, LEGENDARY, and REIGNMAKER.
All players from DraftKings’ Heatwave, UFC 281, UFC 282, UFC 283, Genesis, and UFC Fight Night sets are eligible to compete in these contests.
It is worth noting that the Genesis Standard, Genesis Premium, and Genesis CORE Add-On packs are all still available for purchase. These packs contain top UFC fighters, along with a random distribution of a majority of the fighters stepping into the octagon this weekend.
DraftKings is also releasing an event set pack drop prior to Saturday, where players can bolster their lineups with only fighters participating in UFC 283.
Reignmakers UFC Genesis Standard and Premium packs are here — and with them, a ranked fighter focused collector’s challenge that allows users to collect Genesis ranked fighters to earn their share of $100K in DK Dollars!
Reignmakers UFC players who collect at least 88 of all Genesis ranked fighters will earn Octagon Collector status and its corresponding prize split per rarity tier. Users who collect all 173 genesis ranked fighters will earn Ultimate Club status and its corresponding rarity tier prize split.
Here’s a look at the prize splits:
|TIER||AWARD (In DK DOLLARS – 1 AWARD PER TIER)|

Premium sets will be the best way to collect all your favorite fighters and secure multi-fight usage out of your Fighter Game Cards.
Based on feedback from Reignmakers Football, in which the first drop was also the GENESIS drop, GENESIS packs for Reignmakers UFC will be loaded with ranked fighters! In fact, both the standard and premium packs will guarantee multiple ranked fighters within them, and the premium pack guarantees four ranked fighters within each pack!
Reignmakers UFC is officially underway and firing on all cylinders! Now that the “Weigh-In” phase has ended, our attention has shifted to the Genesis Packs drop, which is on January 6.

DraftKings Reignmakers hosted three separate days of contests on Wild Card Weekend.
On Saturday, it was those who rostered Brock Purdy that found the most success, as the rookie led San Francisco to a dominant 41-23 win over Seattle.
Sunday featured an additional game of players to choose from, and this time it was Reignmakers players who elected to go with Daniel Jones that finished best. The Giants’ quarterback finished as the QB1 on Sunday in New York’s upset of the Vikings in Minnesota.
And finally, in one of the least-competitive games of Wildcard Weekend, Dallas defeated Tampa Bay in a game that saw Dak Prescott finish as the highest-scoring player at any position. The win sends the Cowboys to San Francisco next week in what should be an exciting matchup.
