Combate Americas is a new Spanish-language reality TV series and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) franchise dedicated to identifying and developing emerging, young fight talent from Mexico and other Latino countries around the globe.
Combate Americas has partnered with NBCUniversal-owned TV network Telemundo to deliver Combate Americas reality TV programming to a national audience in The United States.
Combate Americas is being produced by a multi-award-winning production team, including UFC creator Campbell McLaren and Matador Entertainment.
Production on the Combate Americas reality TV series will begin in Miami, Florida in March 2013.
Fighters selected to participate in the Combate Americas reality TV series will be required to live at a designated location in Miami, Florida for a period of 8 weeks.
During production, Combate Americas fighters will participate in daily training camps with an assembly of world-class boxing, kickboxing, wrestling, jiu-jitsu and strength and conditioning trainers, and will be required to compete in MMA bouts sanctioned by the state of Florida.
Here’s an opportunity for up-and-coming Texas fighters to be a part of a Latino MMA Reality show that will be televised on Telemundo. The final casting will take place late March/early April. They are looking for Spanish speaking fighters between 145 and 185 lbs, ages 18-30 years old. If the fighter is chosen, they will cover travel, 8 weeks of living expenses, and the fighters will be paid to fight.
Right now they are just taking bios so no hard commitments up front. If interested, please send a headshot, quick bio, sherdog or mma.tv record, and contact info to firstname.lastname@example.org. Participants who are interested must send these details before Thursday to be considered.
UPDATE: Along with the bio the fighter should include full name, height, weight, date of birth, city and state fighting out of, pro win-loss record and any notes of interest (if the fighter is a police officer or fire fighter or holds titles or high belt ranks in any martial arts, that is important) as well as one hi res photo and links to any fight footage and/or interviews available online.
Keep Texas Fighting!
