Triad Combat, the newest combat sport, is coming to town

Triad Combat, a new combat team sport which integrates mixed martial arts (MMA) and boxing, is organized for an event on Nov. 27 at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, announced Triller Fight Club promotions.

The suggested retail price for the pay-per-view event will be $29.99.

The said event features professional MMA fighters and professional boxers aggressively engaging in a fight in a triangular-designed ring over two-minute rounds unlike in MMA which consist of three rounds, and is limited to no more than five minutes.

The competitors will wear crossover gloves between MMA and boxing with the allowance of offering both fighters an even battleground where neither opponent has a greater advantage according to Triller.

There are few rules that aren't allowed such as kicking and grappling, but fighters can hold and clinch each other. So far, no specifics on the types of holds were revealed yet.

Although it is a one-on-one fight, the sport will divide the fighters into teams of boxers and MMA fighters to determine which sport's athletes have the superior skills.

Frank Mir, UFC heavyweight world champion, and boxing heavyweight world title challenger Kubrat "The Cobra" Pulev, and former UFC mainstay "Platinum" Mike Perry will compete on the event in their respective bouts and no opponents were announced.

"UFC is an old sport now," said Kavanaugh, whose Triller Fight Club was behind the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. exhibition boxing match last year.

This unique sport is designed to peak the interests of the younger generation that view boxing and MMA, as outdated.

"It's more exciting, it's faster-paced and better looking. It's shot like a movie or a video game, and it's surrounded by culture," said Kavanaugh, who previously owned Hollywood movie studio Relativity Media.

In addition, Triller Fight Club promotion announced that the event will also feature hard rock band Metallica and other special guests for a special performance. It will broadcast on streaming platform FITE and through cable providers.
