GOL, the FTA Spanish broadcaster, has acquired the rights to Karate Combat’s second season in Spain.
Each Sunday night, from now until December, combat sports fans will get to see the Karate Combat Season 2, featuring bouts between the world’s top athletes in four virtual worlds rendered in real-time using Unreal Engine, the video game engine behind Fortnite.
“The minute we announced the creation of Karate Combat, that Spanish fighting spirit came at us fast and we were approached by the country’s top competitors” said Adam S. Kovacs, League President of Karate Combat (who is also a world karate champion). “We’ve zeroed in on the most skilled champions who also have the cajones for full contact fighting. Spain is well represented in our league and I look forward to seeing how they stack up against top international competition.”
“We are very happy to incorporate Karate Combat into our combat sports offering. GOL spectators will have the opportunity to enjoy the best events with Spain’s star Karate fighters,” added Francesc Carbonell, GOL’s Director.
Each one hour episode includes 2-3 bouts of 3 rounds each along with profiles shot in the fighters’ own countries, bringing their training, as well as their struggles and passions to life.
