"Actors and sportsmen Don "The Dragon" Wilson and Olivier Gruner have agreed to take part in the show. They will be participating under Kazakhstan's flag against titled MMA sportsmen from Brazil. Jean-Claude Van Damme was supposed to come, too, but refused because of his role in a new movie. Armand Assante also confirmed his participation as a guest,” Yalgashev said.

According to him, the unique show will be held on October 16-18. The prize pool makes $10-15 thousand. The budget is kept secret. “These will be real fights,” he said. “Different film festivals, dancing and other shows are held all over the world. So I decided to make a MMA show. I think it will be interesting.”
