The combat sporting event is scheduled for November 27th at Global Life Field in Arlington Texas and will feature the MMA fighters and boxers facing off in a specially designed triangular ring.

Triller made a massive impact on the world of combat sports in 2021 - particularly with the success of their boxing matches featuring Jake Paul taking on the likes of Ben Askren and most recent, Tyron Woodley.

Despite the fact that the fight banner recently faced backlash for their September event in which former UFC champion Vitor Belfort pummeled a 59-year-old Evander Holyfield in first-round TKO, the brand continues to pave their own lane in the realm of dight promotion.

Combining combat sports with contemporary pop culture, the events function as equal parts prizefight and concert having already showcases performances from headlining artists such as Justin Bieber, The Black Keys, Diplo, Doja Cat, Saweetie and the collective of West Coast OGs in Mt. Westmore featuring Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Too Short and E-40.

Triller FIght Club is now expanding their portfolio of productions with the launch of Triad Combat. Bringing together the world of boxing and MMA in a unique way, Triller is pitting fighters from the two disciplines against one another in a specially designed triangular ring. In addition to the new ring, fast moving two minutes rounds and crossover gloves will also come with the ability to hold during the fight to try to find an even playing field between the two combat sports.

Showing no intention of limping into this, Triller has announced that the inaugural Triad Combat will take place at Globe Life Field in Arlington, TX on November 27th. While the fight card has yet to be announced, Former UFC standout and brand new Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship acquisition Platinum Mike Perry will be featured on the card. Also competing is former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir and former world title contender Kubrat Pulev.

Yet what changes the game isn't the unconventional ring or the reformatted rules, but the additional of some serious star power to the performance element of the production. Triller Fight Club is going massive for the inaugural Triad Combat by recruiting Metallica for a special guest performance - a huge coup for the company.

"Here's something different for you and is definitely a first for us," shared Metallica. "We'll be hitting the stage before the main bout at the Triller Fight Club debut of Triad Combat."

Tickets for the inaugural Triad Combat from Triller Fight Club go on-sale Friday November 5th. The event will also be broadcast on PPV for $29.99. Complete information and tickets are available - HERE
