The UFC Performance Institute has implemented Fusion Sport’s Smartabase athlete management system to ingest data from various training technologies and create custom reports and monitoring tools.
Coaches, trainers, medical staff, sport scientists and others at the institute began incorporating Smartabase in the middle of 2020. Fighters can access and view their own data through a Smartabase Athlete App, which also offers a portal to provide additional information.
The UFC Performance Institute, which earned SportTechie’s 2019 award for Outstanding Venue, has its flagship location in Las Vegas and a satellite center in Shanghai that’s three times larger than the original. The UFC PI offers state-of-the-art technology, a training facility for MMA fighters as well as other elite athletes, and advanced fighting analytics and sport science support.
