Joanna Krupa, voted ?Sexiest Woman in the World? will host the new reality MMA TV show, ?Ultimate Women Combat? the show will feature 8 female contenders from all corners of the globe. The show is expected to be broadcast around the world. No air date has been annouced.
Cagewarriors caught up with the supermodel to get her thoughts on the new show and MMA
?Its gonna be a top of the line fight show and will take place in a beautiful exotic location so the viewer will be sitting in intense mode every episode and honestly i don?t think i can choose one over the other because i think both elements are very important in making a show top notch.?
?I am a huge fan of the UFC and Gracie jiu jitsu cause i believe not only its the one of the best methods of fighting but also its an amazing form of self defense especially for women. i think it should be mandatory for any woman to learn at least the basics of jiu jitsu as i have started taking lessons at Gracie Miami. I think schools should bring in self defense over useless gym classes.?
The tryouts for UK Contenders were held on 10th December at SBG Gym, Manchester with the US holding their auditions next week when a final list of contenders will be drawn up. So far the repsonse has been terrific from all around the world, making the possibility of increasing the numbers to the show or holding a second show later in the year.
Lyle Howry, President of Lyle Howry Productions, the creators and producers of the show commented ? The response has blown us away in sheer volume and quality of the applicants, it just goes to show that there is a huge talent base out there for Womens MMA so expect some amazing names on the contenders list next week?.
