UFC’s Nunes offer personal training in Metaverse
May 12, 2022
The Sports Metaverse, the virtual world specifically focused on sports, has announced a partnership with UFC icon, Amanda Nunes, to offer personal training in her metaverse gym.
Nunes is a two division UFC champion and largely considered to be the greatest female MMA fighter of all time. This partnership inaugurates the launch of The Sports Metavserse landsale, where users can trade NFTs, buy land, interact with iconic sportspeople, and visit stadiums. The pre-sale is currently ongoing and will be opened to the public in June. The Sports Metaverse is being built by SportsIcon and industry veterans from Sony, Doom, Playstation Home, and Nvidia.
Nunes is building her personal gym in the Sports Metaverse. She’ll appear in 3D and coach users on how to fight:
“It always was a dream to have a gym. You want to be in control of your stuff, you want to train the way you want. You want to be able to share with the fans. I’m building my own gym in the real world and now I have one in the metaverse. It’s very exciting; I can’t wait to put all my posters in my own gym! I’ve made a lot of history in MMA and I can’t wait to have all my pictures and memories of these moments in my gym, so every time I walk in I have a good vibe and be able to train to do even more good things in the sport. I can’t wait for the next step in my life,” Nunes commented.
SportsIcon CEO and Co-Founder Chris Worsey, added: “We are delighted to welcome Amanda Nunes and the five sports brands to the Sports Metaverse. Amanda’s gym and the training she will offer are unique. We are the only metaverse volumetrically capturing icons like this, enabling consumers to interact with top athletes in a completely new way. This is groundbreaking stuff and we can’t wait for the public land sale in June.”
