    Star Wars? MMA Promotion announces plans for sparring in sparse with the help of former SpaceX employees and rocket engineers – RT Sport News



    If you like your mixed martial arts unaffected by gravity constraints, then perhaps the newly-announced ‘Galactic Combat’ is for you, as an MMA league has announced plans to orbit the Earth in a spacecraft.

    Andrea Irvolino, the legendary producer of entertainment company Space 11, has a long history of various projects – and is seeking something from this world for his next endeavor.

    Iervolino has announced plans to produce a reality television series featuring 40 MMA fighters, who will participate in an elimination tournament, with the victorious contestants in a specially designed capsule outside the Earth’s atmosphere with zero gravity. Will earn the opportunity to fight.

    If you take UFC, it has a huge fan base., “Iervolino said in a recent interview.

    My goal with this new format is – I don’t want to lose to UFC fans, we need to embrace them all, the whole MMA world – but the goal of fighting Zero-G is to make the concept more comprehensive

    Plans for the ambitious concept see the fighters train and compete with each other on Earth, with eight successful fighters blasting into space as they travel around the Earth for 90 minutes Does.

    Former UFC fighter John Lewis has been associated with the project as vice president and promoter of Galactic Combat, a pre-2023 launch date planned earlier.

    When people try to punch you in zero gravity – I don’t know if you’ve seen a video of a child pushing someone [in zero gravity] And that person goes to the other side of the room, “Iervolino added his unique concept.

    This is a completely different way to punch someone. This is a very different type of training

    While the project, at least, appears to be an over-ambitious one on the surface, Iervolino says he has a crack team of scientists including a host of former SpaceX employees as well as rocket engineers, astrophysics and astronomers.

    When we first started working on Space 11, we were super cool about it,” she added.

    This is a notable one. It is easy to fight two people in a rocket orbiting the earth.
