They don't come greater than Jon Jones, Anderson Silva and Georges St-Pierre in the world of MMA

Imagine being part of a training session run by Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

It is a salivating prospect for any football lover, but one that will likely remain a pipe dream. Mixed martial arts fans, however, need not have to wonder, for a similarly enthralling experience awaits them in Singapore.

Three of the sport's biggest stars will conduct a special training session at the Marina Bay Sands' ArtScience Museum on May 31. Jon Jones, Anderson Silva and Georges St-Pierre will showcase their talents in 11 cities including London, Sydney and Dubai, as part of the inaugural Fighters World Tour.

The Straits Times explains just why fans are willing to fork out $888 for a two-hour clinic with the trio, who have all enjoyed lengthy title reigns in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).
