Try Out Your Left Hook in the Flatiron Public Plazas this Monday!

Try Out Your Left Hook in the Flatiron Public Plazas this Monday!

Reported by Tod Shapiro for the Flatiron Hot! News

You can measure the force of your good left hook as part of the UFC 205 promotion for an upcoming bout, namely the Alvarez-McGregor tussle at Madison Square Garden on November 12. On my way to work today as I “swung by” the Flatiron South Plaza by 23rd Street and 5th Avenue, and had a chance to see Flatiron’s mightiest swinging and punching away on a machine that measures the force of their blows. Yes, there it was – a punching bag hooked up to a sensor and complex array of screens – take a swing at the bag, and you will see your punch ranked up there against your fellow Flatiron denizens on a detailed ranking monitor, complete with a rating relative to all recent participants in the promotion. As I watched, I saw the stalwart and powerful, both men and women, giving it their all. A worthy addition to the never-ending series of over-the-top promotions that we’ve come to expect in the Flatiron Public Plazas. You can post your pics and clips as hashtag #UFCNYC!
