Fans have been eagerly anticipating the return of Sirius XM host JASON ELLIS’ annual Ellismania boxing event to see what the radio host has planned next.

“Ellismania 10 will be the biggest, most insane one of all time! The event will have ordinary citizens punching each other in the face, highly-paid Vegas escorts, comedy, blood, electric dog collars, piñatas, virgins, bingo, and Dr. Drew,” commented Jason Ellis. “In the main event, I will be accepting a challenge that no radio host is idiotic enough to face. I’ll be fighting ten men, back to back, including former professional UFC fighters!”
Fans will be entertained throughout the night by Jason Ellis trademark brand of comedy, as they watch a full night of strange and comical boxing matches between radio personalities, celebrities, MMA fighters, and listeners.
