What is Triad Combat?
Triad Combat is a new combat team sport that incorporates both boxing and MMA rules, with fighters competing in a specially-designed triangular ring over two-minute rounds. Triller Fight Club Triad Combat will feature professional boxers competing against professional MMA (mixed martial arts) fighters in the same ring for the first time.
Organizers have tried to level the playing field by tweaking some of the rules specific to each sport. In particular, athletes will be able to use special “crossover gloves,” and withholding is allowed. Punches and jabs are allowed but there will be no kicking. Per a Triller Fight Club official, this is “meant to offer boxing and MMA fighters an even battleground where neither opponent has a greater advantage.”

The Mir vs. Pulev fight is expected to go the distance, though Vegas oddsmakers have given the edge to Pulev, thanks to his ability to throw down an arsenal of punches (Oddsmakers feel Mir may be held back by some of the new Triad Combat rules).
The co-main event on the Triad Combat fight card pits Alexander “The Great” Flores vs. Matt “Meathead” Mitrione. And former UFC Superstar ‘Platinum’ Mike Perry returns to the ring to take on Michael Seals in their inaugural Triad Combat face-off.
