Fighting in octagons on the planet earth must not be enough, now there’s talk of holding a fight in space. Entertainment company Space 11’s veteran producer, Andrea Iervolino, wants to do something no one has ever done before. Iervolino has announced plans to produce a reality television series featuring 40 MMA fighters who will take part in an elimination tournament, with the winning participants earning the opportunity to fight in zero gravity in a specially designed capsule outside of the Earth’s atmosphere.
“If you take UFC, it has a huge fan base,” Iervolino said in a recent interview.

This sounds insane!!! A bit terrifying (They’d be in space! They still need to get back to Earth!) but amazing none the less.
I don’t watch MMA, but I would 💯 watch this. And if it happens, heck YES you need to write about it!

This is pretty ridiculous, I mean Fight Island was one thing, but Fighting in Zero Gravity??
I doubt they’ll ever pull this off, but I’d love to see them try.
