Scuffle Combat in association with Netflix has joined forces to magnify and highlight Africa’s MMA talent on a worldwide platform. Together with Painted Story Productions, Elements Cine Productions, and Scuffle Media, Scuffle Combat is proud to announce the launch of Scuffle Search, a hybrid docu-reality series of 10 episodes per season that focuses on the rise from obscurity of MMA fighters in Africa, with a particular focus on their challenges and triumphs. The series will showcase the raw athletic talent found on the continent and what it takes to make it in the combat sport of MMA.
Jason van Schalkwyk, an executive producer and creator of the series, has expressed his thoughts about the partnership as “the delivery of Scuffle’s founding vision of bringing the world to Africa and taking Africa to the world”. Scuffle Combat is proudly working with executive producer Chaker Ben Yahmed and producers Jarrod de Jong, Craig Faris, and Talia Hughes.
Entries for contestants are now open to African athletes until the 25th of September. The 12 finalists selected will be announced at a live press conference scheduled for the 30th of September in Sun City, South Africa. The finalists will then compete for the grand prize where the winner will be awarded a highly coveted multi-fight contract granted by Brave Combat Federation.
