Some folks dream of being professional fighters, or other high level athletes. Others are the type who play games in GM mode and build teams. If you’re the latter, or you’ve just always wanted to be a UFC matchmaker, well here’s your chance.

In a unique effort to raise money for charity, the UFC, along with Hollywood star Halle Berry, have come up with “The Ultimate UFC Experience.” That’s the prize awaiting the winner of a new raffle-style contest backed by Fanatics.com, as part of the All-In-Challenge.

The winner of this exclusive package will get to attend a UFC event, with VIP treatment, be a special guest at the ceremonial weigh-in, meet Dana White and Berry, and — as hinted — get to play UFC matchmaker. Sure, it’s just for one fight, as White later told TMZ — but it’s one heck of an opportunity. Just make sure the UFC President and other matchmakers support your booking.

Training with UFC legends is another perk going to the winner.

100% of the proceeds from the contest will go to charity, to be split between Feeding America, Meals On Wheels, World Central Kitchen and No Kid Hungry.

If you’re wondering about Berry’s connection to all this, the Oscar winner has a new film coming out, Bruised, in which she plays an MMA fighter. The film is Berry’s directorial debut, and also features UFC women’s flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko.
