Demi Lovato has just recently shown interest in having a fight in MMA. She is taking training seriously and TMZ Sports recently shot a video of Lovato and Sylvester Stallone sparring in boxing.
Sylvester Stallone may not have an actual boxing background, but he did train a lot for his movies. He is extremely knowledgable when it comes to the sport and he has a deep passion about it. Lovato may not be training full time with Stallone, but he certainly could share quite a few pointers with her.
Lovato has been dating former UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold and perhaps that gave her a desire to train. It would be interesting to see what organization that she would try to have her first fight in.
The UFC recently did not have much success with CM Punk’s debut and he looked terrible against Mickey Gall. One would imagine that they would not want to do the same with Lovato.
It is interesting to see what type of people are transitioning to MMA. It makes sense for athletes such as Ronda Rousey to make the transition, but it is even a bigger transition for a pop star for sure.
Lovato is obviously a beautiful woman, but she has to realize that an MMA fight can be brutal. UFC strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk is famous for leaving her opponents faces battered and bloody once she is done with them. Of course Lovato would not face somebody like Jedrzejczyk anytime soon, but the danger remains the same when it comes to stepping in the cage.
It will be exciting to see who Lovato faces first. It is just that the public may wonder how seriously she is taking this.
Until then, we can enjoy videos such as the one below as Lovato is sparring with Sylvester Stallone…SHARE:
