The UFC, via a reality TV show, plans to carry out MMA fights in space for 2022 or 2023.
Galactic fights. This is the name of the program that the prestigious MMA league of the planet wants to launch. TheUFC already owns a reality show called “The Ultimate Fighter”,
In this show, professional fighters not necessarily known to the general public find themselves isolated in a house and compete for the title of “The Ultimate Fighter”.
From 2022, the UFC should therefore launch “Galactic Combat”. There will be 40 fighters in their preparation. A first tournament will take place, and at the end of the fights, 8 fighters will remain. They will then go into space where they will compete in a shuttle, orbiting the Earth for several minutes.
“When people try to hit you in zero gravity, I don’t know if you’ve seen the video of a baby pushing a person in zero gravity and the person ends up on the other side of the room. It’s a whole different way of hitting someone. It’s a very different type of training, said Andrea Iervolino, founder of Space 11, the production company of Galactic Combat. This show is doable. Having two guys fighting in a rocket orbiting the Earth is easy. ”
