"Staying fit is a top-of-mind priority for me and I'm pumped to co-host the UFL World Cup,'" Lopez said in a statement. "Progressive calisthenics give you a lifetime opportunity to train and get stronger because you depend on nothing but your bodyweight and your determination. It's amazing to see what the body is capable of doing, and I'm looking forward to watching the world's best athletes compete."
The event will feature a number of tests for athletes to prove their endurance, overall body fitness and creativity.
The "EXTRA" host is no stranger to the fitness world - he released a workout book "Mario Lopez Knockout Fitness" in 2008 and two healthy eating cook books since.
Lopez joins previously-announced co-host Tyson Beckford at the event, alongside two-time national Golden Gloves winner Mike Rashid and Musclemania Universe Champion Simeon Panda.
