YAMMA Pit Fighting surface revealed (Video)

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) co-founder, Bob Meyrowitz, is back in the fight game with a new promotion called YAMMA Pit Fighting, which features a "revolutionary" new surface.

Here's a video that explains the thought behind its creation:

YAMMA Pit Fighting will debut on April 11 on pay-per-view (PPV) from the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, N.J.

The show will feature an eight-man heavyweight tournament that includes former UFC heavyweight champion Ricco Rodriguez, Travis Wiuff, Sherman Pendergarst, Marcelo Pereira and more.

The winner of the tournament will have to fight three different opponents in the same night to capture the heavyweight crown. However, the winner will not fight more than 25 minutes total (the preliminary matches will last just one round and be five minutes each; the final will comprise three five-minute rounds).

In addition, Eric "Butterbean" Esch will take on Pat Smith in a "Masters Super Fight" and Mark Kerr will attempt to derail Oleg Taktarov (these are two round, five-minute fights).

It should be interesting to say the least.
