    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Those of you that were alive when the first UFC was held, tell me, was it televised? Was it on PPV? Was it accepted?

    I think the point I'm trying to make is obvious. How long before tournaments where killing and maiming are completely legal become socially acceptable forms of entertainment? How long before our families tune into the TV and we hear, "Welcome to ULTIMATE BATTLE PUGILISM: No ref, No rules, No mats, No pads. The only sport where steroids and methamphetamines are not only legal, but ENCOURAGED!"

    I'm going to take a guess at around 2060-2075.

    I hope it happens a lot sooner than that! If people are stupid enough to do it, then I want to watch!

    Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

    Oh there's no doubt in my mind people are stupid enough. Of course, battle probably won't be to the death. Just till one of the combatants can no longer fight,

    Feh. When you can go to the death, it requires less skill. For example, there was this one ancient Greek pankrationist, a real *****: instead of fighting like a man, he sharpened his fingernails and spear-handed his opponents in the stomach.

    What a wuss...

    Considering 48 states wanted UFC banned I don't think that's very realistic.

    Osiris:

    Dude, I totally saw it in this book on MMA-- ever heard of Brawl? Yeah, I thought so. Anything that has to do with BJJ is real, so there.

    I wonder if he beat his opponents that were GJJ (Greek jiu-jitsu) practitioners by spearing them in the stomach when they jumped to guard...
