There Officially Will Be A Sanctioned Fight At NASCAR

The day has come where sanctioned fighting and NASCAR are coming together. Jalopnik reported that a sanctioned Bellator MMA fight will take place during the upcoming race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series All-Star Race will host 4 rounds of Bellator MMA fighters the weekend of May 20th. They’re placing the ring in the fan zone outside of the stands. The fight is free for fans and at least one North Carolinian fighter will be in each round. Unfortunately, if you aren’t attending the race the fight won’t be televised. There are plans to have more fights at different NASCAR tracks later this year, so no fear, even if it’s not the drivers you’ll still get to see a fight.
