MMA legend and UFC featherweight champion Amanda Nunes has teamed up with The Sports Metaverse to open up a virtual gym poised to get you ready for the octagon.
The Sports Metaverse is a sports-focused digital world hosted by SportsIcon, a Sound Media Ventures portfolio company, The Sports Metaverse allows fans to trade NFTs, buy and develop virtual land, interact with athletes in 3D, and visit metaverse stadiums. Sports City, which includes a stadium and a casino, is the main plot of virtual real estate in this metaverse within which fans can buy and sell NFTs, watch live sports, interact with other fans, and play to earn.
The Sports Metaverse is being built by SportsIcon and a staff of developers from Sony, Doom, PlayStation Home, and Nvidia, with several firms already purchasing land, including Press Sports, who is another Sound Media Ventures portfolio company.
“It always was a dream to have a gym,” Nunes said. “You want to be in control of your stuff, you want to train the way you want. You want to be able to share with the fans. I’m building my own gym in the real world, and now I have one in the metaverse. It’s very exciting. I can’t wait to put all my posters in my own gym. I’ve made a lot of history in MMA and I can’t wait to have all my pictures and memories of these moments in my gym, so every time I walk in I have a good vibe and be able to train to do even more good things in the sport. I can’t wait for the next step in my life.”
“We are delighted to welcome Amanda Nunes and the five sports brands to the Sports Metaverse,” said Chris Worsey, The Sports Metaverse’s co-founder and CEO. “Amanda’s gym and the training she will offer are unique. We are the only metaverse volumetrically capturing icons like this, enabling consumers to interact with top athletes in a completely new way. This is groundbreaking stuff, and we can’t wait for the public land sale in June.”
