NICKMERCS & TimTheTatMan stun fans with UFC X event announcement

Popular streamers TimTheTatman and NICKMERCS have stunned gaming fans by announcing an upcoming event during UFC X International Fight Week, set to take place on July 1.

Back on June 10, Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff left fans scratching their heads when he teased a UFC event involving fellow streamer TimTheTatman.

The two are known to be friends, regularly poking fun at one another on their streams and enjoying games together. However, they have now confirmed a UFC ‘Battle of the Ages’, fans truly stunned leaving.

Now, on June 12, both men have confirmed their involvement in UFC X’s International Fight Week, with all signs pointing to an event of some kind occurring between the two. It is chalked in for Friday, July 1, 2022.

Announcing the event via Twitter, NICKMERCS joked that β€œlife’s a trip man”, before saying: β€œThe team & I are beyond excited to work with the UFC & take the MFAM Gauntlet to a whole new level. See y’all in Las Vegas baby!”

Attached was a UFC clip showing an official advertisement with the message: β€œLive at UFC X during International Fight Week – NICKMERCS takes on TimTheTatman. Go to UFC.com/MFAM for tickets and tune-in information.”

The event will be taking place at Las Vegas Convention Center South Hall in Las Vegas, Nevada but, as of the time of writing, much about it remains unclear. Most notably, it’s not actually clear whether the pair will be fighting, or the event will be about something else, perhaps gaming.

Speaking on Twitter, MFAM employee Albert Petrosyan said: β€œWe know you guys have a lot of questions right now. Don’t blame you. Got a LOT of details coming up real soon, so don’t worry you’ll know everything ASAP. Just trust me when I say this event is gonna be unparalleled and. You guys are in for a major treat.”

Despite Twitch, YouTube, and TikTok’s recent tendency towards boxing matches as a way of settling online disputes, very few of us foresaw a UFC event between two streaming giants.

As more details become available, we’ll cover everything you need to know.
