Jason Ellis has just about done it all-- from pro skateboarding to hosting a daily radio show on Sirius XM radio to pro fighting, the ever-ambitious Ellis will now be

hosting "Ellismania" on FUEL TV.  What do viewers have to look forward to-- well the show is described as "fighting at its dumbest" with comedy thrown into the fights. 

FUEL TV's VP of Production and Development, Scott Paridon, said, "I have never produced, or even seen, a show like this before."  That kind of statement coming from an executive at an action packed station like FUEL TV certainly makes the debut of Ellismania much anticipated.

While Jason Ellis described the fights as being good hearted and between people who want to fight for the fun of it, there are twists and turns thrown in, which vary from fight to fight.  For example, in one fight participants wore blindfolds and electric shock collars which were controlled by audience members. 

Girls won't be left out, watch out for Angel Jones from E!'s "Holly's World" to get in the ring and kick some butt this season.

Neon Tommy caught up with the man himself, Jason Ellis, at the Fortune Gym in Hollywood where he gave us a preview of what to expect as well as some fighting tips that could help land fans on the show for an opportunity to fight.

"Ellismania" will premiere Wednesday April 6th at 10:00 pm ET/PT on FUEL TV.
