The new MMA reality TV show “Phoenix X Warrior” will be broadcasted on the leading local TV channel and will give fighters from all over the Middle East and North Africa the chance to prove themselves in the octagon and compete against each other to become the first “Phoenix X Warrior” and sign a contract with Phoenix Fighting Championship.
Over 12 episodes, MMA fans will follow the day to day life of 33 fighters divided in 2 weight division, Lightweight and Welterweight, living under the same roof for 2 months and watch them train and prepare for their fights against each other.
