Professional fighters spend much of their time focused on their sport, whether fighting, training, or strategizing, all with the goal of being the best in their field. If they start young, they’re lucky, they have time to build muscle, find the best team, and gain skills. For those that start later in life, they have to do all the same things in much less time, as they need to compete at the same level.
Making it in Hollywood
But for many, the top of their field isn’t enough. They see bodybuilders, gymnasts, and other pro athletes break out of their fields and become household names as Hollywood action stars. Fight to Fame, a new reality show, gives fighters the chance to breakthrough into mainstream media.

These fighters work long hours to compete, and for the first time, that effort can translate into an even bigger success. Fight to Fame will help up and coming fighters from across the globe will battle for the opportunity to become the next Jackie Chan or Sylvester Stallone.
Fighters Around the World
Fight to Fame’s focus on fighters shines a light on the hard work and heart that all fighters put into their craft. The open registration means fighters from around the world will get the chance to compete on a major platform, regardless of where they come from.
Fighters will have the same opportunities to showcase their talent, and be judged by viewers for their skill. Even those that don’t win a Championship Gold Belt will see the results of their success. From financial and talent management to a global spotlight, fighters will walk away from the competition with unprecedented opportunities.
Competing Against the Best
Preliminary rounds will help whittle down the registrants to find the final group of fighters in the running for the Grand Prize. Fighters will compete in multiple rounds of challenges, each testing a different type of skill, from stunt work and fitness training, to acting and media training.
Each week they’ll work with industry professionals, along with weekly challenges to test their skills. The viewer-voted best fighters will win Championship Gold Belts, with one final winner getting their shot to become the next big action star.
A New Path to Stardom
In a world where fighters have been underrepresented, Fight to Fame offers a way for them to make their Hollywood dreams come true. By bringing in fighters from around the world, the show aims to give fighters from all corners of the globe an opportunity they wouldn’t have otherwise. The new platform will cut through the hold global martial arts promotion companies currently have on the action film industry, and help up and coming fighters.
