    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    What would you do if you killed someone in a tournament/cage fight?

    So I've been thinking a lot, since I'm currently unable to do anything but work on developing a Jabba the Hutt physique as my leg slowly slowly heals from my knee surgery.

    I watched Ip Man 2 the other day, and there's a part where Evil English Boxing Bad Guy Man kills a Sifu who is like, 30 or 40 years older than he is. And of course he is all proud of this and saying he is going to kill every Kung Fu Sifu in Hong Kong who dares to challenge him.

    But I was thinking, I doubt anyone would really be like that. Okay, there ARE some serious fucking sociopaths out there, but I would think that any that bad would get weeded out before becoming some sorta international champion. So gloating and going on like you are Himmler or Stalin or something is probably not what is gonna happen.

    Anyway I was thinking, man, what if someday in a tournament I were to somehow accidentally kill someone? Or paralyze them from the neck down for life, like that chick in "Million Dollar Baby?" ****. I don't know how I would look at myself in the mirror. I don't know if I could bring myself to ever fight again.

    What would you do? Would you give up fighting? Would you give up martial arts completely? Would you spend your life trying to make amends somehow? Would you get over it ever, or not?

    Has anyone here ever really really seriously permanently injured someone in an official fight?

    I heard a guy's pride was severely injured after an eargrynd.

    I'd probably throw up, and then feel wretched. Fortunately for the rest of mankind, I have no skillz, and am more of a threat to myself than anyone, in or out of the ring.

    Were I to maim/kill myself in a match, I'd expect a front page article on BS, and some postmortum mockery. Perhaps even a self-d3adly tag.

    It would depend on what type of person you were i guess. If you were fighting professionally wouldn't you be aware of the risks involved and go into it accepting that that could be a possibility?

    I really don't know how i would react but i hope that the scenario never arises because it is quite a terrible one. Thinking about it now i would imagine i would freak the **** out. Even a small unintentional incident can cause stress, so i guess something on that scale would be insane.

    Hahaha, well that would be flat out psychopathic cos that wasn't accidental in the movie.

    Its fighting. Serious injury or death is a very possible outcome. It is something that you don't set out to do but it can happen. I wouldn't go through the whole, "I don't know how I would look at myself in the mirror. I don't know if I could bring myself to ever fight again." I would feel bad for my opponent and his family and friends but If your are doing it in the first place you have to accept the risk same as any physical sport. Seriously if you don't think you punching, kicking, slamming, choking, locking, etc is going could seriously hurt someone you a bit of an idiot.
