According to a Feb. 18 report from MMA Junkie, UFC legend Royce Gracie appeared on the Feb. 18 episode of MMAJunkie Radio to discuss his role in a new Hispanic MMA reality show that will be debuting this weekend on mun2.

Gracie, 47, will be a special guest on the show, along with a series of celebs from across the globe.

Besides Gracie, "Combate Americas" will feature special guests that include legendary Mexican luchador El Blue Demon, Muay Thai kickboxing champion Joseph “Bazooka Joe” Valtellini, actress and Top Chef Estrellas star Cynthia Olavarria, Tropical Latin Music superstar Elvis Crespo and Los Angeles super group Psycho Realm.

“Combate Americas," which was founded by Ultimate Fighting Championship co-founder Campbell McLaren, is a new reality show that follows the lives of 10 Hispanic MMA fighters who are trying to secure a contract with the new Combate Americas promotion.

The show debuts on mun2 on Sunday, Feb. 23 at 10 p.m. in the east, and 9 p.m. central time.

Additionally, the English subtitled premiere of "Combate Americas" has just been added to mun2's programming lineup.

The English subtitled version premieres on Wednesday, Feb. 26 at 10 p.m. in the east, just three days after the all-Spanish language premiere.

The first 10 episodes of "Combate Americas" were filmed in the winter of 2013 in Miami, Florida, and the series will be hosted by award-winning Latin music duo Chino and Nacho, along with MMA journalist Andrea Calle.

Daddy Yankee will serve as Combate Americas' first commissioner and Piolin, SiriusXM host of Piolin Radio channel 147, appears as the color commentator.

"We want to build stars and have them stand next to celebrities. Fame is currency. You can spend fame. That’s why we’re capitalizing on a Daddy Yankee,” McLaren said.

Several great up-and-coming MMA fighters will be featured on the show, including 20-year-old Arkansas standout Oscar Valdez and Rene “Level” Martinez, a Florida resident.
