Nick Jonas: Last Day Of MMA Training Camp For ‘Navy St.’ Role — See The Pics!

Nick Jonas has been working hard, learning the ins and outs of Mixed Martial Arts for his role as a fighter with a UFC contract in DirecTV’s Navy St. For the past couple of weeks, the show has put Nick and co-stars Jonathan Tucker and Matt Luria through MMA training camp with their coach Joe ‘Daddy’ Stevenson, and on Friday (April 25), the trio wrapped up the basic education needed to make the show as gritty and realistic as possible!

Not only did Nick, Jonathan, and Matt work on their skills at Master Toddy’s Muay Thai gym in Pomona, CA and Joe Stevensen’s Cobra Kai gym in Victorville, Nick also filmed a behind-the-scenes interview for the show and the guys were fitted for custom mouth pieces at Unbreakable!

Looks like things are really coming along, and production is scheduled to begin in early May! Check out the pics from the final day of training camp in the gallery below now:

Nick Jonas Set To Return To TV With Co-Starring Role In DirecTV’s New MMA Drama ‘Navy St.’

Nick Jonas

For the first time since the Disney Channel’s Jonas and Jonas L.A., Nick Jonas will be taking off his guest star hat and heading back to the small screen full time!

According to a story by The Hollywood Reporter, Nick is set to co-star in DirecTV’s Navy St., a gritty, family drama centered around a mixed martial arts gym in Venice, CA called Navy Street, run by Alvey Henderson (played by Frank Grillo), “a former fighter whose drug addiction prevented him from making it big.”

Nick will be playing Alvey’s son, Nate Henderson, a “shy kid who receives a UFC contract,” and is, subsequently, his “father’s pride and joy,” all while dealing with the impact of the addiction issues of his older brother, Jay (played by Jonathan Tucker), with whom he lives.

Kiele Sanchez, formerly of A&E’s The Glades, sits top-bill with Nick, and will be playing Lisa Prince, Alvey’s long-time girlfriend.

Production is set to begin May 5 in Los Angeles on a total of ten episodes and will air on DirecTV’s Audience Network in the fall. We can’t wait to find out more about this exciting new project for him! In the meantime, we’ll keep counting down the days until the season finale of Hawaii Five-0, where Nick will reprise his role as evil mastermind Ian Wright!

What do you think about this role for Nick? Can you see him as an MMA fighter? Just take a look at his healthy living selfie once again up there — we rest our case!
