Karate Combat has officially announced the premiere date for their fourth season in addition to a live show in Orlando, Florida.
Over the course of the last few years we’ve seen plenty of promotions attempt to carve out a spot for themselves in the combat sports sphere but when it comes to Karate Combat, they seem to be taking their game to another level.
With each and every passing season they’ve gone bigger and better with both their presentation and the fighters they bring into the fold. Now, as confirmed by KC, they will be returning to our screens on May 14 with an action-packed card headlined by Ross Levine vs Igor de Castaneda.
We’ll see another event air every two weeks after that on May 28 and June 11 and finally, on June 25, there will be a live broadcast from a “world-famous location” in Orlando.
“Our mission is to be the world’s most original, most entertaining fight promotion and give the fans what they want to see. We take things to new heights with every season and on every level, from production to broadcast talent to matchmaking, and we’re going to do it again with ‘Karate Combat: Season 4’,” said Adam Kovacs, Karate Combat President.
“We are delighted to welcome GSP back to his sensei role this season and we are thrilled that he will be joined by Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson. These are two of the most accomplished karate fighters in history. Fans love them, fighters love them, and we’re proud to have them as part of the ‘Karate Combat: Season 4’ lineup.”
The superstar additions
As well as putting on some incredible full-contact karate fights, Karate Combat has also been able to sign UFC legends Georges St-Pierre and Stephen Thompson.
Both men began their MMA journey in karate and for the upcoming season, they’ll be playing the role of Senseis.
The pair will join a superstar collective that includes Bas Rutten and Lyoto Machida with many wondering who the next big name will be.
Get ready, folks, because Karate Combat means business – and they’re certainly here to stay.
